    Grace’s Review – PMO Consultant, Virgin Money

    How did FDM Group help you attain your position?

    I think I’m 100% confident in saying I wouldn’t be where I am at Virgin Money in this role without FDM. It’s quite a unique role to go into, release management, and the PMO training stream gave me good technical and personal skills to be able to join the company with confidence to be able to do really successfully within my role.

    Consultant reviews

    “FDM provides practical additional training and qualifications that can be added your CV. They have a large portfolio of blue chip clients, which provides great opportunities to gain experience. They provide two years job security and an alternative route to large organisations outside of the traditional graduate programme route.”

    – Charlotte Keens, Former Senior FDM Consultant, now permanent at UBS, UK

    “I had tried my hand at a few different jobs after university but what I really wanted was a career, FDM offered the chance to start this with the training, placements and support. I would, and have, recommend FDM to friends especially those that have graduated but still searching for a career path with progression.”

    – Beth Mateer, FDM Test Analyst at Yorkshire Building Society, UK

    It is a great company to start your IT career in, straight after university. Never would I have thought that I would be working with such a reputable company gaining the experience I most crucially needed. The culture is very inviting and dynamic. There is a big sense of ability over experience.”

    – Sonia Osa-Iduma, FDM Test Analyst at Fiat, UK

    “Having not done an IT related degree at university FDM offered me the best opportunity to get involved in IT. It’s a tough job market and FDM offers a massive stepping stone. The opportunity and environment that they provide is second to none.”

    – Kristopher Kemp, FDM Business Analyst at Warner Music, UK

    “I was drawn to FDM by the impressive client list, and the chance to gain some solid skills that employers valued. Most of my FDM friends have done their two years now, and most can’t believe how far they have come, and how glad they are that they did it. The sky is the limit.”

    – Ryan Clark, FDM Production Support Analyst at UBS, Switzerland

    “I felt that FDM provided a great opportunity for me to develop my skills to suit my career choice. The training offered by FDM is specialised and specifically catered to teach trainees everything they need to know to prepare them for the corporate world.”
