Ex-forces career programme

What the Ex-Forces Programme offers you

When leaving the services, you’re not starting again. You’re starting with experience.

We find job roles based on your strengths, skills, behaviours, knowledge, and ability gleaned from the services.  The strong relationship we have with our clients provides them with a 360-degree view of the value you could bring to their business. As a result, your career can grow faster through strategic placements, whilst you can have an immediate impact across our client base.

Recognising the skill set of those leaving the Forces and Blue Light services is further enhanced by the coaching and mentoring that FDM delivers to prepare our Senior and Associate Consultants for placement across our blue-chip client base to lead the way to the future you want. 

Our Ex-Forces Career Programme is designed for people looking to transition from the services into a new career as a consultant. Get access to our Skills Lab, specialist learning and development, coaching, mentoring and succeed on assignment at world-leading organisations.

Since 2014 FDM’s Ex-Forces Programme has provided a next step for over 1,000 people globally, offering opportunities for ex-forces personnel from all ranks and branches of the services. No university degree required.

Delivering industry recognised coaching, our Ex-Forces Programme provides a soft landing into assignments with renowned businesses, and access to a well-established professional network.
