Life at Life Trading

The right mix of excellence, fairness and recognition.

Why work for Life Trading?

Our name reflects our ethos, as do our values: One Life, One Team, One Focus. We are a professional, values-driven company and, yes, we expect accountability and excellence from our teams, including our management. We also recognise that people want to be treated with respect and fairness. We understand the importance of enjoying your work every day, sharing an office with decent people, feeling rewarded for your commitment, and having a life outside the office.

Pay and Bonuses

We value and reward effort and hard work. There is no limit on total remuneration. Salary and discretionary bonuses are merit-based with bonuses awarded twice a year and paid quarterly.


We prioritise openness and trust because we know we can only achieve our business goals by also meeting our people’s needs. With no hidden costs, our traders know they are being treated fairly, so they can focus on trading, with full visibility of their income. Our flat management structure and equitable culture help us workshop issues and ideas across teams.

Work-life Balance

We respect the importance of family and pursuing personal passions. Our generous holiday and parental leave allowances, as well as remote and working from home options, are designed to suit our employees’ needs.

Health and Wellbeing

We’re here to build a successful business, but we also want our people to stay healthy and have fun. Join Life Trading and you can enjoy the running coaching club, fresh food in the offices, a lunchtime swim at the beach, monthly socials and an annual team offsite, among other perks.

‘Prior to joining Life Trading I worked in HR at McKinsey & Company, Hays Recruitment and a renewable energy start-up. I love the variety and flexibility of working for a smaller organisation, no two days are the same and you really get to know the business and your colleagues. The people here are friendly, passionate and experts at what they do. There is a flat structure and the senior management are approachable and embody the values, which is refreshing. Everyone is a team player and the employees are treated fairly and with respect. The culture is like no other.’
