Travelex, a market leading foreign exchange brand, has announced the creation of more than 1,200 new international jobs. The announcement follows a series of major new contract wins across the APAC, Europe, MET and UK regions as both the international travel and FX markets continue to strongly recover post-pandemic.

In Asia, Travelex is recruiting over 50 roles across Singapore and Malaysia as airport terminals re-open. The company today announces it has signed a two-year contract extension with Singapore Changi Airport, and will be reactivating its stores at Changi Terminal 2 which is set to shortly reopen.

Travelex is also expanding its store network at Kuala Lumpur International and Penang International airports in line with resurgent travel demand. As Japan re-opens borders, the company’s wholesale and partners businesses continue to expand, with over 55 new bank and corporate customers being onboarded over the past 12 months.

Across the ANZ region, Travelex is creating more than 100 retail and head office jobs. These include positions at Travelex’s new airport stores in Adelaide, Brisbane and Cairns. In addition, Travelex has recently launched new ATMs at Darwin International Airport, and will be launching more than ten new stores in Australia and New Zealand at high profile shopping centres and in key cities.

In the UK, over 1,000 new positions are being created across retail, wholesale and head office operations following new contract wins and the rebound of the UK travel industry. Travelex recently launched a full range of bureaux and ATM services at London Stansted Airport, the UK’s fourth largest airport and ATM and bureau operations at East Midlands Airport.

Donald Muir, Travelex CEO, said: “This is a hugely exciting time for Travelex, with the creation of more than 1,200 international jobs, more than twenty new contract wins and renewals (with more in the pipeline), and a new CEO with a high degree of digital expertise set to shortly join the business.”
