Preparing and supporting graduates for success

Our 50:50 vision for the tech world

Across the world, STEM jobs are disproportionately
held by males.

The problem? A wide pool of untapped female talent.

The solution? Our She Lives Tech initiative: Inspiring female graduates of all backgrounds to build successful tech and business careers.

Many women still find it very challenging to break into the technology industry, which is why FDM is committed to providing the support, resources and training to enable female candidates to thrive.

Our Talented Consultants

I was interested in FDM because of their connections with major banks in Australia and other global consultancy firms. I felt that I could really accelerate my career with them. While originally based in Melbourne prior to FDM, I re-located to Sydney and am now working at one of the Big 4 banks of Australia. Even though my placement required me to move from home, it has been a great learning experience.

Business Intelligence

I joined FDM because they have great opportunities for career growth, especially their training. They are also all about diversity and inclusion, which was very appealing to me.  

Not only do I owe FDM my actual position, but they have always made me feel supported. They reach out to you regularly to give support on your career journey and during your placement. On top of that there are many social events in which you are able to network and connect with colleagues that are working with different clients of theirs as well as meet new FDMers that have just joined.
