FDM Group has an incredible work force, with employees who are supportive, friendly and approachable. I enjoyed my individual group project very much, as I had the opportunity to work with the Diversity and Inclusion team along side my Business Intelligence role. I was a BI intern for 8 weeks, which have literally flown by this summer.
The internship was an enjoyable and inclusive experience. The welcoming environment coupled with the learning and networking opportunities provided a beneficial experience from start to finish. The group project carried out by all interns across the country provided the notion that a real contribution was being made to the company and its values.
It's been a thoroughly enjoyable year from start to finish. Prior to beginning a placement the last thing I wanted was to spend the first 3 months twiddling my thumbs whilst seeking out some responsibility - that definitely wasn't the case at FDM! From the very first week I was trusted to deliver and throughout the year I've felt like I've been growing constantly.
I thoroughly enjoyed all the opportunities I had whilst on placement. The company is very young which made it easy to fit in with full time staff. I was given big projects to work on and lead, which is more than what a lot of placements offer. I had a good year and felt that my work added value to the company. I worked very hard all year but I think that my work paid off, as I have received very good feedback from people from different areas of the business.
Over the past 12 months I have been undertaking a sandwich placement year as Recruitment, Marketing & Events Assistant in the FDM Glasgow office. Throughout the course of my placement, I have been exposed to a wide range of tasks, experiences and people, all of which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I have learnt invaluable communication skills and interview techniques which I have not only implemented in my own work, but also been able to pass onto candidates.
