Initially, this role will be remote, but will switch to Hybrid working once the new office is Open (city-centre). Therefore applicants who are not able to commit to a hybrid working model need not apply.

CITI is one of the largest players in the financial industry, employing more than 200,000 people across the globe.
In the UK, CITI is a major employer with over 6000 people in London and 3000 in Belfast.

CITI comprises many different businesses across Retail, Corporate, Wealth Management and Investment Banking. One of the most important, high profile and profitable sectors is Global Markets Trading.

Global Markets Trading deals with clients and investors who wish to trade in the international markets of Foreign Exchange, Equities, Interest Rates, Bonds, Commodities and Credit derivatives. There are roles available in each of these different areas.

Each of these market sectors deliver multi-billion-dollar revenues and have their own technology team, working with a range of applications and different technologies. Most of our key applications are developed in-house, to give our trading operations a competitive edge through speed, flexibility, and bespoke functionality.

Within the Global Markets IT department, many of our senior developers and managers are based in London but work with global teams in North America, Europe, and Asia.

Previously, our UK mainland IT roles were centred in the London area. However, we believe in the growing significance of N.W. England and particularly Manchester as a technology hub.
