Press release from: FDM Group

FDM Group, the UK’s largest IT graduate employer, is defying the economic gloom and offering graduates in the North-West the opportunity to work as professional IT Consultants representing FDM on prestigious clients’ sites in the region.

According to the latest UK unemployment figures published by the Office of National Statistics, the unemployment rate in the North-West of England for 16-64 year olds was 9.4%, compared with the national unemployment rate of 8.4%, for the final quarter of 2011.

Despite these shocking statistics, FDM is employing 1000 graduates in 2012 to work on technical placements with its clients across the globe.

FDM CEO, Rod Flavell, said, “We firmly believe in the depth of talent available in the North-West region and our Manchester office is providing a wealth of opportunities for high-calibre IT graduates to kick-start exciting careers in IT.”

FDM, awarded 9th place in the Job Crowd’s top 50 companies for graduates to work for in 2011, provides many benefits to graduates seeking work across the North-West.

The salary of FDM’s IT Consultants across the UK is the same whether they are working in London or the North-West, which is rare and a real advantage to those based in the region.

FDM provides graduates with the opportunity to utilise their degree working for a stable and rapidly growing company at a time where quality post-university jobs are at a premium.

Madeleine Field, Recruitment Manager at FDM, said, “I have spoken with many students who are concerned about their ability to get a fulfilling job post-university. With the current uncertain economic climate, prospective and new graduates are anxious about their ability to find careers that will be fulfilling as well as financially beneficial. At FDM we provide a unique opportunity for graduates to start a rewarding career in the IT industry.”

Despite the general economic climate, IT is an attractive industry to move into with the High Fliers’ report into ‘The Graduate Market in 2012’ highlighting that the most common employer requirements for graduates were in finance and IT.

FDM takes graduates from various backgrounds, including engineering, mathematics, numerical sciences and finance, and trains them in IT specific skills before sending them to work on technical placements with the company’s prestigious clients.

FDM offers a variety of roles and at present there is strong client demand in the North-West for Test Analysts, providing fantastic opportunities for interested graduates to begin an exciting career in this field.
