About FDM Group
FDM is a global professional services provider with a focus on IT, and a mission to bring people and technology together, creating and inspiring exciting careers that shape our digital future.
The Group's principal business activities involve recruiting, training and deploying its own permanent IT and business consultants (known as "Mounties") to clients, either on site or remotely. FDM specialises in a range of technical and business disciplines including Development, Testing, IT Service Management, Project Management Office, Data Engineering, Cloud Computing, 'Risk, Regulation and Compliance', Business Analysis, Business Intelligence, Cyber Security, AI, Machine Learning and Robotic Process Automation.
The FDM Careers Programme bridges the gap for graduates, ex-Forces and returners to work, providing them with the training and experience required to make a success of launching or re-launching their careers. We have dedicated training centres and sales operations located in London, Leeds, Glasgow, New York NY, Arlington VA, Charlotte NC, Austin TX, Toronto, Frankfurt, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Sydney. We also operate in Ireland, France, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and South Africa. Following the impact of COVID-19, throughout 2020 our courses have been delivered remotely by our trainers to all of our in-training Mounties and made arrangements for all of our staff to work remotely, effectively and efficiently.
The health and wellbeing, both physical and mental, of all of our people and stakeholders is central to who we are and what we do. As such, our outreach programmes for our Mounties and in-house staff have grown in significance during the pandemic, becoming key to our support and care for all of our staff globally.
FDM is a collective of over 5,000 people, from a multitude of different backgrounds, life experiences and cultures. We are a strong advocate of diversity and inclusion in the workplace and the strength of our brand arises from the talent within.
