What employees say

"What I most like about working at Global Shares is the entrepreneurial spirit, friendly atmosphere and feeling of endless opportunity. There's a ‘Clonakilty taking on the world’ mindset: If you challenge yourself and think big enough, anything's possible.

I've been with the company since 2014. We were a small team of about 50 back then with big ambitions and we were about to launch our new global software platform onto the market. It's been an amazing experience to be part of the company's evolution as it has grown into a truly global leader.  

We are continuing to grow at rapid pace. Everybody who works here has an important role to play and can make a difference. It's exciting to be part of!"

Word from the top

Achieving accreditation as a Great Place to Work® for the third year in a row is something we’re incredibly proud of. Our accreditation is testament to our people - the driving force behind our business success and our greatest asset. 

Being Great Place to Work® certified has been a superb support during what was an outstanding 12-months for our company when we announced we were becoming part of J.P. Morgan - also a Great Place to Work® certified company - and very closely aligned with our culture and values. 

The Great Place to Work® accreditation is a core part of our HR strategy and gives us a global framework to continuously improve how we care for our team and maintain a high-trust culture. We look forward to working with our new partners at J.P. Morgan and the consultants from Great Place to Work® in the year ahead as we accelerate our expansion and grow our team globally.

Our great workplace

For anyone who doesn’t know Global Shares we would describe ourselves as a forward-thinking, vibrant, friendly, multi-cultural fintech company with a talented team and massive global ambition. We have a relaxed and friendly working environment. Pool tournaments, ‘Bring your Dog to Work’ days, surprise ice cream or Easter egg deliveries, and marking staff celebrations in the canteen are all part of our day to day here in Global Shares.

As for what a day in the office is like – we’re a hugely diverse company with lots of great characters and an appreciation that playing pool or chatting over a coffee is an important way to communicate and get away from the computer screen for a while. Global Shares is a regulated company so it’s very professional. A place where, with hard graft in the right role, there is no limit to the opportunities.
