Our culture is built around 3 pillars


Training is tough, there is constant pressure and it is a steep learning curve. You will undoubtedly struggle and fail repeatedly. Onyx recruits must learn to endure hardship and persevere, where only the mentally strongest will succeed.


The step change results come when you accept you are nowhere near the finished article, with a willingness to accept radical candour & objective feedback. Embracing self-evaluation & the relentless pursuit of perfection are incredibly powerful tools.


When the going gets tough, some look to blame anyone but themselves. There is zero tolerance for this at Onyx, as we expect people to embrace responsibility and be honourable in failure. Pointing fingers is the victims logo.

‘The early years of my career were exceptionally challenging for me, and far beyond my expectations. Although uncomfortable, I accepted the feedback and forced personal changes so I could progress. When I got my chance, I proved my capabilities, and I was rewarded with a Head of Desk role. I am now a partner at Onyx, and benefit from a reward structure that is unparalleled to other financial market roles.’
