    I worked at FDM Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Foot in the door route for many leaving the Military. Able to train and certify and in some excellent areas.

    Cons

    Flexibility of locations but also the unpaid during the first 6 weeks is not always welcomed and nor is a further 6 weeks after training if no placement is found. However this is briefed and is an individual risk.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a basic payment during training or between weeks 6-12 in order to ensure staff do no go 12 full weeks unpaid. Even £200 per week would be helpful.
