When I first found out about FDM I loved their model, specifically the focus on equipping candidates with the necessary skills.

Not only did FDM teach me the necessary skills, they placed me at a world class Bank in South Africa.I was excited to be amongst the few selected to be trained as a trade and risk management platform production support analyst, it was a perfect fit. I was at an advantage as this role and platform is a rare skill specific to the financial sector and internationally recognised, which has improved my career prospects even more.

With the opportunity available to me throughout the Graduate Programme, my hard work and career growth was recognised and I won employee of the month for August. My experience with FDM has been awesome to say the least.”
