So who are we?

We are TorFX, one of the UK’s leading foreign currency exchange brokers.

Over the last decade our company has flourished, expanding to include offices in Penzance, London and Australia. In conjunction with our London-based parent company we have over 250 employees, 80 of whom are based in Cornwall. We’re one of the largest independent employers in the South West and offer exciting career opportunities to motivated individuals of all experience levels, including recent graduates.

We pride ourselves on securing the best deal for our clients and creating a dynamic, rewarding and supportive working environment for our staff.

Self advancement is promoted and employees are able to experience the satisfaction of working towards long-term career goals.

TorFX employees also command a highly competitive salary with a good hourly rate and commission prospects.

Furthermore, TorFX is an award winning company. Over the last ten years Tor has been awarded ‘Best European Currency Broker’ by Overseas Living Magazine and achieved two high rankings in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 list for being one of the UK's fastest growing independent companies.

Another huge plus point of working for TorFX is its location in the heart of one of the UK’s most beautiful counties. By joining our team you can satisfy your desire for a bustling big-city career in a glorious, relaxed environment.

What do we do?

Simply put, we help individuals and companies save money on their foreign currency transactions.

TorFX strives to save clients money on their regular or one-off currency transfers by securing them a competitive exchange rate. All transactions are bank to bank transfers, but by using our services clients are saved from having to meet the charges normally levied by their own banks.

We also offer a range of specialist services, such as fixing a favourable exchange rate for up to a year in advance of a trade, so clients are able to safeguard their funds from negative market movements.

Our services are used by more than 50,000 private customers and over 4,000 corporate clients. Last year we processed in excess of £800,000,000 in international transactions.

Given the highly competitive and fast-paced nature of foreign exchange, it’s important to get an edge on rival companies. Aside from the superior quality of living and enviable landscape, one of the advantages of being based in Cornwall is that overheads are lower than in London, so we’re able to pass on savings to our clients without compromising on the services or quality of customer care we provide.

What opportunities are available for you?

Foreign exchange might sound complicated, but we make it simple. On-the-job training means that previous experience in the sector isn’t a requirement of most positions, though a head for numbers can be useful!

Our business is built of numerous integral departments, including Sales, Marketing, Accounts and Business Development, and job opportunities continue to crop up as we expand.

As an example, recently advertised positions include Treasury Assistant, Telephone Sales Executive, Experienced Sales Supervisor, PPC Executive, Business Development Executive and Copywriter.

Each role requires a different skill set, from strong verbal and written communication skills to team management experience, campaign planning and forecasting, data handling and the ability to create and maintain PPC campaigns. No matter what your strengths, there could be that perfect job waiting for you at TorFX.

What do our staff say?

The best way of finding out what a company is really like is by talking to its existing staff. We’re lucky enough to have a team of committed individuals who all bring something special to our thriving office environment.

Here’s what some of our employees think of being part of TorFX.

One thing that has never changed during my time with the firm however is the team ethic and belief we have in each other to succeed. The business continues to grow due to this belief and with many of the same personnel that started the firm still in place today the unity and professionalism that Tor employees have is a pleasure to work amongst.”
