The Role

FDM Global Academy trains our new recruits in contemporary high-demand working practices our clients especially value.  Rather than teaching textbook theory, our training is highly experiential; delivered by seasoned consultants with significant time served in their discipline.  We believe our approach is unique to us; blending various learning styles and media, we deliver realistic training scenarios requiring a mix of remote working and time in the office too, very much mimicking contemporary working practices in a modern business environment.
