Why your company? (graduates)


What made you choose your company?


"The opportunity to travel is what attracted me to FD but when I visited HQ for my interview, the staff there were so pleasant and everyone was welcoming. It felt like a lovely team to be apart of. The opportunity to work with some of the world's biggest financial institutions was a huge selling factor as well."
Midlevel, Toronto
"I wasn't sure what field I wanted to go into after university. First Derivatives gave me the opportunity to learn new and relevant skills and also the exposure to international investments bank I would not have been able to work in was it not for them. I have access to a very broad range of work and the opportunity to learn new skills every day."
Finance, Experienced, New York
"I chose FD for the opportunities to travel and because I knew that if you do a good job in the financial world, there's a lot of potential to make very good money. The fact that FD is a young company which was constantly in the news for hitting new profitability levels/growth levels also made it very attractive!"
Capital Markets, Midlevel, Sydney
"I applied for FD due to its reputation for having very high standards: I knew it would be a great company to get into to grow my graduate experience."
Human Resources, Executive, Newry
