What our consultants say
FDM provided a platform and foundation for me to practice my passion for IT and I am now in my third year as a consultant. In my time on-site, I have been involved in two critical Agile projects impacting all departments within the organization.
My main responsibilities are the management of clients in the UAE and Qatar as well as Risk Management and Compliance focusing on Terrorist Financing and Money Laundering within Commercial Investment Banking. FDM gave me the opportunity to move abroad and work in Dublin, which has been a fantastic experience.
Member of the CIO’s Office
My daily activities involve engagement with stakeholders, governance of the IT department and Risk Management. During the implementation of a new Risk Management process across the whole IT department, I had the chance to work alongside very senior people which has increased my network and given me a great understanding of the department as a whole.
