Ed, Data Centre Systems Engineer (Woking)
I joined Fidessa as a placement student studying Electronic Engineering at the University of Surrey. I had some doubts about completing a placement as part of my degree, but after a year at Fidessa, I have no regrets!
Having minimal experience, everyone was really friendly, patient and the learning experience exceeded my expectations. In the end I achieved a First Class Honours Degree with an Industrial Placement Distinction and an award from the University for best performance during my placement within my course.
When I returned to the University to complete my final year, I found that my time at Fidessa made me more focused and driven to succeed. Fidessa made me an offer to re-join the company once I had graduated, and I jumped at the chance as I knew this is where I wanted to be.
Fidessa offers plenty of career opportunities and training courses to attend. These help with your own work and to understand what the rest of the company does.
