FX Portfolio Manager

£40,000 - £60,000 (OTE £60,000 - £100,000)
London, Paddington

PLEASE CONTACT

Jack Harry

I work as a Recruitment Consultant on the Corporate desk, focusing primarily on graduate jobs within the Banking & Finance sector. This often includes roles in Broking, Trading and Accounting.

My area of expertise

I sit on the Corporate desk, working mainly on Banking & Finance graduate jobs. Because of the diversity of roles and sectors we work on at Give A Grad A Go, though, I've also had the chance to dabble in FinTech and slightly more creative graduate jobs - which I also really enjoy.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I’d applied for a few roles through Give A Grad A Go, but wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do. I came in to visit the team to discuss what kinds of graduate jobs my skills would be best suited to, and I really liked the atmosphere in the office. Although I’d never really considered a career in graduate recruitment before, when I spoke to the team about the possibility of a job here I thought that it sounded like something I’d be good at – and here I am!

The worst job I've had

I held a job doing door-to-door sales for a number of different charities. Hopefully I learnt something from the late evenings cold calling in the rain!

If you’re looking for FX graduate jobs in London and you want to earn OTE of up to 100k in your first year, this FX Portfolio Manager job could be ideal for you! The ‘Best Company to Work For’ are looking for an FX Portfolio Manager to join their growing London team.

Job description
