"I found GRS on Google and instantly knew they were professional after sampling their website. After speaking to them over the phone, I visited their offices and was blown away by just how friendly the team were. Having wanted to join the Forex Industry, GRS pointed me towards their sister company, FX Careers. I quickly enrolled onto the 4 week course and during the second week, my recruitment manager at GRS, Hayley, started to introduce me to the best Forex companies on the island (Cyprus). 


"Hayley wasn't just professional in her approach, she was completely understanding too, and found me the perfect job for my skillset (experienced Marketer - Online Marketing Specialist). I simply couldn't have asked for more from her or the GRS team. I strongly suggest anyone that's looking for a recruitment agency in Cyprus to give GRS a call. I can't stress enough how great the FX Careers course was too. If you want to join the highly prestigious FX industry, you simply have to get yourself on the course. The series of tutors, headed by Andrew Savvides, made the course fly by as not only was the course entertaining, but I truly learnt so much about the Forex Industry, which helped me land my new job!"

Jaymes FX Careers student, Limassol, Cyprus, February 2015

  • Before I decided to join the FX Career course I had a fair degree of knowledge through my trading experience and general reading up on the subject. I decided I wanted to take this course to improve my knowledge while at the same time acquiring a recognised certification within the forex industry. My expectations from this course were to gain a deeper ‘inside’ knowledge of the working of a forex company and generally broaden my knowledge of the FX industry. 

    To be honest this course has been more varied then I expected, with the sales training and useful and necessary component of the course.

    My short term goal within the FX Industry is to earn a decent hiring in an FX Firm and my long term goal is to help this company grow beyond viability, with my skills and determination I know this is possible.

    Akis, FX Careers Course student (March 2014)

  • Before I joined the FX Careers course I had an understanding of the FX Market, including commodities, indices, stocks and FX but I wanted to broaden my knowledge. My expectations when I decided to take this course were to really enhance my knowledge in this industry, and find out more of the running within a firm. When in fact my expectations were blown massively out the water, actually it was far more than what I expected to get out of this course. ‘Industry knowledge, product knowledge, everyday duties of the back-office department, compliance, sales and marketing as well as technical analyses. What also blow me away was the constant positive energy and belief that was going around the class, I believe this is how we should all be thinking in order to work and achieve our maximum goals.

    I believe I am more ready than ever before to succeed in life.

    Olga, FX Careers Student (March 2014).

  • Having heard a few people talking about the fx industry and then noticing many offices opening up here in Cyprus I became intrigued. My previous work experience has always centered on civil engineering, but having said that when I found out about the FX Industry I tried researching by myself but found it difficult to understand. At the same time the sector greatly interested me and especially with all the hype, then I found out about the FX Careers course and the chance to study.

    My expectations were met and exceeded; this course gave me my confidence back and I learned a lot about the Forex and Binary industry. I am so happy that I did this course and feel very confident I will succeed in this industry.

    Despina, FX Careers Student (March 2014).

  • Just a note to say thank you for a great course last month. I would like to to say that it was a real eye opening experience for me. I know that we all joined the course to find a job in Forex, but regardless of the outcome, I am really glad that I joined it. I really felt that it opened my eyes for many new things. 

    Emilia, FX Careers Course student (April 2014)

  • Before speaking to FX Careers I had no knowledge about the industry but was very curious. When I sat down with the course manager he gave me a real insight into the industry before even signing up for the course. This gave me food for thought and how to open my horizon to new possibilities and a new career.

    The course Manager Andrew Savvides was very enthusiastic about the industry. My first day on the course was amazing, everything put on simple terms to understand for new beginners and then got more advanced later in the course, which at the beginning I would never have thought about technical and fundamental analysis but now I understand how it works. We covered all aspects of the FX Firms such as Back Office Procedures, compliance, sales, marketing etc. It was beyond expectations as it also included Motivation every day and really got the feel good factor instilled in each and every one of us, the sales training was very inspirational and educational, even though I have been in sales and customer services previously it gave me a new perspective. I believe I can really excel in Sales or Customer support roles within a forex firm. 

    My end goal is to really build my career with confidence and succeed in the company I join.
