FX Trading Jobs & Recruitment

FX Recruitment

We work in partnership with global and regional heads of FX across a select number of investment banks, brokers and buy-side firms. We have placed over 250 professionals in the FX market in all the major global financial centres, making us one of the most established and successful FX recruitment practices in London, initially as part of Correlate Search before the team joined Pure Search in 2013.

Our specialist recruitment consultants and in-house competitor intelligence gives our key clients access to comprehensive mapping in all areas of FX sales & trading, enabling us to provide the closest fit more quickly than our competitors. Our research is used by partner clients both to manage their own team through identifying talent gaps and knowing where to increase bench strength, as well as to carry out comprehensive competitor analysis.

Our proprietary data of over 1000 FX people moves collated over the years shows us that, on average, 60% of all moves in the FX market are in sales and 27% of moves are in trading. The remainder are evenly split across research, structuring, risk advisory and prime. This spread is matched in our market coverage:
