About FDM Group

Covid-19 has thrown the world into fear, uncertainty and sadness. At the same time, the pandemic has also changed almost everything about our daily lives, including the way we work, shop, get medical help, how we are educated and how we communicate. Our reliance on technology has never been greater, and as a result we have unprecedented levels of demand for keen and ambitious individuals to join our Technology Graduate Programme. With it, is the need for recruiters to bring those candidates through the application process.

FDM is the market leader in the Recruit, Train and Deploy industry. We recruit and train graduates, ex-forces service personnel and returners to work, transforming them into IT and business professionals before deploying them across our client base.
