FDM’s business consultants work with clients on operational and business transformation programmes to help with both the implementation and delivery of projects, as well as providing on-going support.

Our people combine technical excellence with strong interpersonal skills and work in some of the most demanding and challenging environments.  We provide ongoing professional and technical support for all of our consultants to help with their personal development and to ensure we provide a seamless service to our clients.

Our diverse talent pools, combined with the ability to transfer FDM consultants to permanent in-house resource means our clients can benefit from range of experiences and technical skills in the creation of their own balanced teams.

The Getting Back to Business Programme provides clients with experienced business analysts and project managers who are returning to work after a break in their career.

Our business analysts work with clients on IT projects and business change programmes.

They capture and understand business requirements and translate these requirements into technology for the development team.

They have excellent stakeholder management skills and work with a number of teams across the business to identify and resolve issues, assess the impact of change and effectively communicate the business needs.

“Hannah not only stands out as a well-qualified BA to drive initiatives/projects in her own business team but also executes the firm’s core value of giving back by acting as a leader for several major core charity projects. Hannah’s high standard in both business and daily life impresses me constantly”

Our project management consultants are trained to run projects in complex and challenging environments, learning ITIL, Scrum and more.

Consultants understand the full project life cycle, with the ability to assess the financial profile, risks and issues and will make recommendations accordingly.

Many of our project managers come through the Ex-Forces Programme or our Getting Back to Business Programme, allowing clients to benefit from their extensive life experience, leadership and communication skills.

“Coco managed a mandatory time critical delivery across Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan, with global oversight. She joined as the co-lead of a stream on the largest project UBS is running, taking over from a senior resource with 6+ years of experience and facing off directly with Swiss colleagues and senior stakeholders. Coco is autonomous and organised in her work. She is delivering projects as a project manager that I would expect someone with 4+ years of experience to be delivering. She is a valued member of the team.”

“Cassie joined the project teams in the middle of the project phase and was unfamiliar with the project background. Her contribution has been to improve the communication amongst the project team. Her involvement has helped reduce the workload of some key project team members which helps me to make the project a success. I have received appreciation for Cassie from managers and management level employees.”
