    Financial Engineer


    Applications for our 2022 Business Services roles are now closed as our places for this year have been filled. Please keep an eye out for our 2023 roles opening for applications over the coming months.

    The Financial Engineer role is a fast-track path into consulting for the worlds leading financial institutions. To be successful in helping a complex business operate and transform, it is imperative to understand the business domain; this is why we succeed and generic consultants flounder.​

    First Derivative has a strong reputation for providing highly skilled consultants within the Financial Services sector. We will introduce you to the world of finance and train you to understand key products, functions and processes that underpin global trade, project finance and money management. You will train with us and work on live projects with our clients who are based in nearly all the commercial trading centres worldwide.​

    If you have an enquiring mind, strong interpersonal skills and enjoy the challenge of solving complex problems, then apply now.

    What we look for:​
    • An inquisitive mindset, an aptitude for problem-solving, a passion for learning​
    • A confident communicator, competent in client interactions​
    • The ability to pick up technical training and apply this to client projects​
    • Willingness to travel to various parts of the world to work with clients​
    • Strong academic background – ideally a 2.1 degree in Finance, Economics, Accounting, Business, Law or other similar disciplines.​
    • Commitment to the 2 year training period, which rolls into a full-time permanent position​


    Coming from a chemistry degree, I was looking for a role where I could pick up the financial and technical skills required to meet real business needs. First Derivative have offered this and more, and the people I’ve met since joining have made my career at the company so far really exciting.
