Who we are

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.

People First

At WorldFirst, we particularly value the following behaviours, which means that we look for examples of these when we hire, promote and reward WorldFirsters.


Take ownership for the work you do and the results you deliver. Inspire others with your thirst for excellence.


Always approachable and prepared to make time for others. Transparent and fair with our customers and each other.


Appreciate and value the work of those around you – united we stand! Treat every customer as if they’re your own.


Seek to understand our strategy, market, customers and each other. Always on the look out to make good things great.


Dare to do and be bold - not afraid of taking smart risks that you can justify. Challenge assumptions and be confident to make suggestions.


Seek to share information and make complex things simple. Know when to make a contribution and when to seek help.
