I have been receiving emails from a trading company called Maverick FX , who are recruiting new traders for their company. Has anyone heard of them, and if so, are they any good to work with? Thank you!

They are going to charge you several thousand for 'training' and then tell you you're a professional. You'll be wasting your money. Stay well clear of all these schemes, since when did employers recruit via junk mail?

Thanks! It came through one of those alerts from one of the job boards I am on. I kinda figured it was a scam. I didn't sign up for it.

There are dozens of schemes like this, everything from mortgage brokers to PA jobs. All they are doing is selling you training and using the promise of a job to suck you in. The following example shows one such outfit that was caught out lying about jobs and previous successes.

All I'm trying to do is find a entry level position for a trading company, and all I get are scams! LOL. Its crazy to find that some that are out there are useless companies. Thank you for the information!

There are plenty of decent recruiters around London which will help place you into a trading firm, a simple Google will bring them up. You will have to be clear on what you are looking to get into though. Do you want to go to the buy side or sell side? Are you looking for a prop trading house, prop arm within a bank or a market making desk? Perhaps just a long only fund?

If you are not sure what some of these terms mean then it might be worth doing a little more investigation before approaching a recruiter, many specialise in particular areas. Your current experience and, dare I say it, age will be a factor. Many of the prop firms I know will only take on grads as they don't want employees tainted with the working mindset of a big corporate or bank.

I wish you all the best in finding your first position and can only re-iterate the other warnings cited on this thread. There are far too many companies out there offering training at a cost with the illusion of a job at the end. Getting out there and finding the role on your own is a far more reliable route.

Thank you! I know it will take sometime to find the right one and to weed out the bad.
