Bringing People and Technology Together

If you’re in the forces and considering a second career, FDM is the next step to bridge that gap. They recognise that people who have served in the Armed Forces have many transferable skills, ranging from adaptability and maturity through to responsibility and leadership, that are crucial to a successful career in the corporate world.

They are committed to supporting ex-forces personnel and providing a soft landing into the corporate world. Their programme has been awarded the gold medal by the MoD’s Employer Recognition Scheme, one of only 33 employers in 2017 to have received this honour.

The FDM Ex-Forces Programme is run by ex-service personnel and employs ex-servicemen and women from all ranks and across all three services.

Supporting Your Journey

Their dedicated ex-forces team are former servicemen and women who will advise and aid you in your transition. In addition, FDM has a number of programmes in place to continuously support and engage  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 the opportunity to build relationships and network within FDM’s wider community by linking our consultants, alumni, trainees, internal staff and clients together

Alumni Network

FDM has launched the careers of thousands of people who make up their alumni network of talented individuals. They regularly interact and engage with their 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.
