Within Project Management, you will be able to work in one of two distinct functions: either as a Project Support Officer (PSO) or a Project Management Office (PMO) Analyst. PSOs are organisers and people co-ordinators, working closely with Project Managers to plan, direct and drive forward key projects. As an FDM PSO, you will directly impact the efficiency and effectiveness of important company-wide projects and have a broad influence across all departments. PMO Analysts can work within central PMO functions, providing assurances and governance over a number of projects across a portfolio or programme.
Risk, Regulation and Compliance Analysts (RRC) are forecasters and navigators. Working mainly in the financial sector, they use their commercial knowledge and experience to identify potential risks, safeguard assets against threat and analyse an organisation’s capacity for success within the industry. As an FDM RRC Analyst, you will play a strategic role predicting trends and future changes to ensure a business remains viable, profitable and safe.Learn More
