Business Services

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 ongoing 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 a range of experiences and technical skills in the creation of their own balanced teams.

Our Advanced Ex-Forces Programme transitions those from a senior level or officer position into project managers which allows our clients to benefit from their extensive leadership skills, gravitas and life experience.

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.

We offer all our consultants a range of initiatives to support and engage them in their transition on site. Learn more about the initiatives we offer in the FDM Consultant Experience brochure.

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.
