FDM Group introduces review initiative to assessment days

Published: Thursday, 04 August 2011   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

In order to continuously improve its assessment process, FDM Group has introduced an anonymous feedback initiative to ensure it is providing graduates with the best possible experience right from the outset.
The UK’s largest IT graduate employer is committed to helping graduates break into the IT industry by providing a unique combination of industry centred training and real commercial experience.
Following a period of phenomenal international expansion, FDM is doubling its graduate intake to 1,000 in 2011.
However the “Best Technical Graduate Recruiter” of 2010 has already received a staggering 17,000 applications so far, therefore competition remains fierce.
To land a place on FDM’s competitive two-year graduate programme, candidates must shine throughout a day long assessment period which includes a logic, technical, soft skill and written test as well as other interviews and exercises.
To ensure that its recruitment process continues to meet the high standards of the company, FDM has introduced anonymous feedback forms to give attendees the opportunity to review FDM’s assessment days.
Since introducing the initiative to its London and Manchester Academies last month the company’s interview process has so far received an astounding response with 91% of the graduates who attended stating that their overall impression of FDM was “positive.”
When asked if they were still interested in joining FDM after the assessment, 98% of the attendees answered “yes”.
Business Support Manager Catherine Cheek said, “Interview processes may seem like an unlikely area for employers to evaluate. However the initiative and fantastic responses we have received so far just highlight how committed we are to providing graduates with the best possible service whether they decide to join FDM or not.”
