Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication SCRL – Why Work For Us?


SWIFT is a member-owned cooperative through which the financial world conducts its business operations with speed, certainty and confidence. More than 10,800 financial institutions and corporations in over 200 countries trust us every day to exchange millions of standardised financial messages. This activity involves the secure exchange of proprietary data while ensuring its confidentiality and integrity.

Our role is two-fold. We provide the proprietary communications platform, products and services that allow our customers to connect and exchange financial information securely and reliably. We also act as the catalyst that brings the financial community together to work collaboratively to shape market practice, define standards and consider solutions to issues of mutual interest.

SWIFT enables its customers to automate and standardise financial transactions, thereby lowering costs, reducing operational risk and eliminating inefficiencies from their operations. By using SWIFT customers can also create new business opportunities and revenue streams.

SWIFT has its headquarters in Belgium and has offices in the world's major financial centres and developing markets.

SWIFT does not hold funds nor does it manage accounts on behalf of customers, nor does it store financial information on an on-going basis.

If you want your talent to grow, then SWIFT is the place for you.

Whether you are just starting out or looking for more demanding challenges, we can help you realise your vision as part of our future. We are looking for the best the market has to offer. Well-rounded, dynamic, ambitious individuals with a clear vision of their future career.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication SCRL in March 2015.


    Basic 1 to 1 phone call no "tell me about a time questions" very casual discussion more than an interview. I appreciated that the HR Director took the time to know me on a more personal basis rather than judge me completely on how I can mold stories to fit the questions they want ansered.
