About World First

We're WorldFirst and we're expert at moving money around the world. As a fast growing FinTech business, we specialise in making foreign exchange simple, fast and fuss-free for people and businesses with global ambitions. We combine best in-class technology with award-winning customer service to give our clients a better way.

We've helped over 120,000 people, small businesses and online sellers transfer over £60bn since we launched in 2004. Our clients never stop. And neither do we.

WorldFirst was born back in 2004 by two innovators in a South London basement armed with ten years of banking experience, an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to provide customers a real alternative to the big banks. Since then, we've grown exponentially and with a global team around 600 strong, have become a market-leading, multi-award winning, bank-beating, rapidly-growing, fun-loving international payments company.

People are at the heart of everything we do. Our business is built on relationships with our clients, suppliers, and partners. And we're inspired to make our customers' lives just a little bit better each day by helping them to move their money around the world, brilliantly. But what's the real secret behind our continued success? Hands down, we're powered by the dynamic and passionate WorldFirst family.

From day one you'll find yourself a part of our friendly, innovative and internationally collaborative team. Our People First culture means our staff is empowered to take chances and build real connections. We are driven and inspired and our workplace reflects that.
