Graduate Trader – Expression of Interest

  • Full Time

IMC trades a wide range of financial instruments, in many different ways. This means we look for different types of traders; from the quantitative minds who enjoy the mathematical side of trading to more operationally focused personalities who thrive on interacting with brokers over the phone.

Our traders share one thing in common, though: they are at their best when solving complex problems. Their insights into global events, market shifts and pricing ensure we always trade in the right place, at the right time.

The Role

Your IMC journey begins with a seven-week global trading traineeship led by our seasoned traders and technologist, during which you’ll link up with graduates from all three IMC regions. You’ll then continue your training in your local office for a further two months before joining a desk that matches your specific background and strengths. Where you go from here is up to you – we’ll help you carve out your own niche as you tackle new challenges and explore exciting opportunities in our markets. And you’ll gain real recognition for your ideas and successes along the way.

As a graduate trader at IMC, you will

  • Trade a wide range of financial instruments
  • Develop, maintain and improve trading strategies and algorithms
  • Manage the execution and risk of complex trading portfolios
  • Work closely with IMC’s technology developers and engineers
  • Have the support of your very own mentor

About You

  • You love tackling complex challenges
  • You want a real-time connection to the world economy, and the knowledge to act on it
  • You want your decisions to directly impact the company’s trading profits
  • You value creativity, camaraderie and innovation
  • You want early responsibility and the freedom to find your niche and excel
  • Superior analytical skills
  • Genuine interest in financial markets, though no prior knowledge or experience is required
  • A team player – at IMC we’re all in it together
  • Experience in a programming language (e.g. Python, Matlab or R) is an advantage
  • Academic background in a relevant field (e.g. Mathematics, Physics or Econometrics)
