About FDM Group Ltd


What is it like to work for FDM Group Ltd

Leadership
Leadership

The key attribute that FDM's leader Rod Flavell has, is the energy, dynamism and commitment towards the organisation and its employees. He believes in a hands on approach and operating in a flat structure environment whereby he and the other directors interact with all levels within the business and sit in an open plan environment. Rod spends time understanding who his staff are, their motivations and encourages internal career progression for high performers ensuring that the company reflects his dynamic approach. This makes the working environment fast-paced, interactive and interesting as it is always changing and adapting to get the most from its staff and to maintain their engagement with the organisation.

Personal Growth
Personal Growth

FDM's business model centres around ongoing employee development recruiting hundreds of graduates each year. They complete the 12 week IT training in various specialist areas and in return for providing the training, they commit to two years employment where they are deployed at FDM's client sites and gain valuable experience with high profile organisations. Their development is ongoing whilst they are working at FDM's client sites with access to their learning materials so they can continue to improve their skills and knowledge. Beyond FDM's IT Consultants, the focus of continual development extends to all their employees with encouragement being emphasised on further training and development for all their staff whether they are in sales, finance, HR etc. Facilitating opportunity is what makes FDM an exciting place to work as they prefer to progress and develop internal staff rather than source expertise outside of the business where feasible.
