FDM Group

Helping graduates to transfer from university to an IT career

Press Release   •   Sep 06, 2010 11:45 BST

FDM Group have guaranteed their success during troubled economic times by transforming IT and numerical science graduates into successful IT Consultants. The company, an international IT services and consultancy firm, works with some of the best known companies in the UK, Europe and USA, and therefore enables graduates to kick-start their IT careers by gaining experience with FDM clients worldwide.

Leaving University is a trying experience for any graduate – and sometimes the most difficult part of it is trying to find the easiest route from full-time education to a suitable career. A big part of this for IT graduates is the “catch 22” situation of applicants not being able to break into the IT industry without experience, and not being able to achieve any meaningful experience until a suitable IT position has been held. FDM Group – a leading provider of IT training, services and consultancy – may just have a solution for the age old problem of breaking into a career for the first time, with the unique opportunity offered by the FDM Academy Programme.

 

FDM Academy is an ingenious system, whereby tech-minded individuals, who are enthusiastic about IT, can specialise in PMO, Java, .Net, Application Support, Software Testing or Infrastructure. FDM will train graduates full-time for twelve weeks, giving them the opportunity to undertake professional certifications in the topics that they have been studying. The really clever part of the programme however, is that FDM Group can be sure that everyone who has graduated their training courses is competent in their chosen subject, and therefore have a large pool of skilled IT Consultants that can confidently service their reputable clients.

 

Successful applicants are expected to work for FDM for two years, which typically entails 1-3 placements. Although placements may not be in one place for two years, candidates can be certain that their time will represent a great investment in their resumes, since FDM Group work with very high-profile clients (including BSkyB, HSBC and Detica). The company is also financially secure, achieving a good level of growth even throughout the recession – due to its investment in its highly-trained staff.
