FDM Group Drop-In

February 13 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Why Come to the Drop-in?

Our employer drop-in's are the perfect opportunity for you to have your questions answered quickly and in an informal setting, allowing you to carry on with your busy schedule as usual. This is in comparison to employer workshops, where you receive lots of information, however you may not have your specific questions answered or may not get a chance to talk to the employer 1:1. It also is a fantastic networking opportunity, and could potentially show FDM that you are interested in them and prove beneficial if you apply to them in the future.

Life at FDM

How It Works

FDM’s Careers Programme bridges the gap between academia and the commercial world for graduates like you.

  • Work on-site with prestigious industry-leading clients, gaining hands-on commercial experience

They equip you with:

Supporting Your Progression

FDM has a number of programmes in place to continuously support and engage with their people.

Consultant Peer Support (CPS) Programme

The CPS Programme ensures that when a new consultant is placed onsite, they are connected with a more senior FDM consultant already working with that client to help ease their transition. These CPS ambassadors provide the guidance needed to help new consultants get settled, connect with fellow FDMers in the area and prepare for their new roles onsite.

Mentoring Programme

The Mentoring Programme brings together individuals at all levels of their career journey, from management to new starters. It provides you with the opportunity to build relationships and network within FDM’s wider community by linking their consultants, alumni, trainees, internal staff and clients together.

Alumni Network

FDM has launched the careers of thousands of people who make up our alumni network of talented individuals. We regularly interact and engage with our alumni community, giving past and present FDMers a network from which to build relationships, learn from others and explore opportunities with people who have had similar career experiences.
