The Why:
These are new roles within IG creating an opportunity to make Melbourne IG’s hub for Service Management globally. You will be apart of a team responsible for managing Service Management in the entire APAC region reporting into the Team Lead located in Melbourne.

So, who are they?
IG is a global Financial Services Company who have made Melbourne their second largest office - with around 90 people working in the CBD. Established in 1974 as the world’s first financial spread betting firm, they are now the world’s No.1 provider of CFDs and spread betting, and a global leader in forex. They have been at the forefront of their industry ever since, offering award-winning platforms with market-leading services and now serve clients all over the world, from 15 sales offices based across five continents.
