Leeds is undoubtedly considered the heart of Yorkshire, with accolades including four Universities, an enormous student population, the largest legal centre outside of London and driving a city region economy a worth of over £56 billion. Home to Asda, First Direct, Yorkshire Bank and Direct Line Group, Leeds is a hive of business activity and a place in which companies succeed and thrive.
The Leeds Academy was originally based in Manchester from 2007 but was relocated to Leeds in June 2015 as increased demand and success meant a larger office space was necessary. The Leeds Academy, a mere 5 minute walk from the city centre station, is situated alongside the River Aire and boasts fantastic views.
The Academy has a capacity of 116 which means it is constantly a hive of activity with new training courses starting almost every week. The superb training and expertise within the Academy allows FDM to launch the careers of both Ex-Forces personnel and graduates alike, securing placements with our 160 blue chip clients.
FDM’s ethos is very much work hard, play hard and this is tangible in the Academy where training is extremely thorough but a fun and supportive atmosphere is evident. The trainees get to know the sales and recruitment teams through regular events such as welcome lunches and reviews which allows for a more unique and personal relationship between internal staff and the trainees. This makes events such as the famous Leeds Summer Party a big success that everyone looks forward to and enjoys thoroughly.
