Your tech career starts here


The FDM Graduate Programme

Our 2-year graduate programme gives you the opportunity to kick-start your career in technology with some of the world’s largest and most renowned organisations in the banking and finance, blockchain, consulting services, insurance and retail industry.

As an FDM Consultant, you will work as an integral part of our clients teams on exciting projects which could involve complex trade applications and fraud detection technologies for global banks or developing risk portfolio solutions for insurance.

How does it work?

The FDM Graduate Programme starts with comprehensive 6-14 weeks’ training through the FDM academy, led by our expert training team, and offers the opportunity to achieve industry-recognised certifications depending on the career pathway you choose. The training will develop both your technical and professional skills and will allow you to experience an agile working environment where you will be presented with real world challenges to solve.

After successfully completing your training, you will begin your 2-year career journey and will be placed with one of our global clients as an FDM Consultant – here you will be able to gain exceptional hands-on experience and add some leading brands to your CV.

Our goal is for happy and successful placements for both our consultants and clients. We will provide you with ongoing support and guidance throughout your whole career journey, from the day you become an FDM trainee until the end of your placement as a full-fledge consultant thriving on client site – we will be there for you every step of the way.

We recruit all year round and have start dates throughout the year, allowing you much more flexibility on when you can start your career.  

We welcome candidates from all degree backgrounds and universities, and you don’t have to have studied a STEM degree to start a career in tech with us. Find out more about what’s different about the FDM graduate programme here.
