Work with us

Not everyone can offer you First Rate job prospects. But we can.

At First Rate, you’ll be part of a major worldwide currency operation where billions of pounds change hands every year. Now is an exciting time to join us as we are looking to grow and expand our business, through new products, markets and partnerships.

We have a strong customer-driven culture and are energetic, bright and highly inventive in meeting our clients’ needs. And we offer a dynamic, fast-moving environment where people with talent and dedication can learn, grow and thrive at every level.

If you are looking for an exciting challenge rather than ‘just a job’ and want to be part of a transformational period in our history, please contact us. You can also check for any current vacancies here.

Starting well

We know that starting a new job can be daunting as well as exciting, so we take care to welcome you and to help you settle in.

From day one, you’ll take part in an induction programme organised by your line manager. And you’ll have a dedicated ‘peer support’ who will answer any questions and introduce you to the ‘informal’ side of life at First Rate.

Developing your career

We want all of our employees to grow and reach their full potential. So at First Rate, you’ll benefit from continuous support to help you learn, develop and move on, both professionally and personally. This can also open doors into the areas of our business where you are best able to thrive.

Overall, our aim is to ensure job satisfaction – and to give you the best opportunity to advance your career.

Enjoying the benefits

At First Rate, we believe in rewarding our employees for their skill and commitment, so they’ll want to stay with us.
