Our Head of L&D talked to two of the marketing team about TFG’s company culture…
So, in terms of FAQs about TFG and our own career journeys, here’s what some of the team had to say…
Q: Why did you choose to work for TFG?
I have always been interested in finance, as I find it so complex and intricate.
When I saw the job listing to work at TFG, and upon doing research on the company, I was impressed by the work the company was doing.
TFG places a strong emphasis on sharing valuable information with its readers, and I felt like that was a great mission and that I would love to get involved.

Q: What’s a day in the life at TFG?
It’s hard to describe a typical day in the life at TFG, as one day can be so different to the next.
My favourite days are when we have major new trade or finance data to report on, or when we have a high-profile interview going out.
One day we might be writing about the US-China trade war; the next, the Suez Canal blockage; and the next, Vladimir Putin’s influence on soaring natural gas prices.
For anyone who enjoys the puzzle of macroeconomics and geopolitics, you will certainly feel at home at TFG.
Patrick | Assistant Editor & Copywriter
Q: How would you describe the company culture?
It’s very collaborative, friendly, and supportive.
Everyone plays an intrinsic role in what TFG does and produces, and every win is celebrated by the whole team, which is very rewarding.

Q: How would you describe the TFG Team?
I feel that teamwork is an integral part of this machine: we work together and succeed together.
No one is left behind, and no one is unimportant.
The mission of the company is shared by every member. And it’s a very appealing mission at that.

Q: What has been the most memorable part of your journey with TFG so far?
Coming from a technical background, I was not really used to writing articles, but at TFG you can progress in lots of new ways.
For example, after I configured Power BI with the Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) – a feat that many internet users have struggled with – our editor, suggested that I write an article based on my experience, and that is how my first media piece was born.

Q: Why would you want to join TFG?
The TFG team is made up of hard-working, intelligent, forward-thinking individuals, who collectively are leading the way in trade finance. You’re given the opportunity to make your ideas become a reality and implement them, with their full support.

With TFG, internships aren’t tied to a certain season or period of time.
They are tied to the quality of the intern: their skills, curiosity, and drive.
If you think you are the right fit for the team, and would love to spend some time with us, then please get in touch.
Working at TFG built my confidence in so many ways: presenting and speaking with industry professionals, and taking on responsibilities that even I, at first, believed were too great for myself.
Finding TFG was wonderful, as it gave me an insight into a part of the finance industry I had never really heard of before.
I was able to fine-tune my data skills and learn what proficiencies are desired by prospective employers, so that I can build these whilst studying, and ensure that I stand out in future.
