Job Description

WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT A TRADING CAREER AT IMC?

IMC trades a wide range of financial instruments, in many different ways. This means we look for different types of analysts; from the more operationally focused who enjoying tracking market sentiment, breaking news and modeling catalysts to more theoretical minds who enjoy more quantitative and statistical modelling.

Our analysts share one thing in common, though: they are insatiable consumers of information and are at their best when solving dynamic strategic problems. Their insights into global events, market themes, relationships and catalysts ensure we always trade in the right place, at the right time.

YOUR JOURNEY AS A GRADUATE RESEARCH ANALSYT

Your IMC journey begins with a four-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 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 research analyst at IMC, you will

  • Stay on top of all the news, events and market pricing that impacts our trading strategies;
  • Identify and analyze catalysts across products and asset classes
  • Perform impact analysis on material events, catalysts and support positioning for it;
  • Provide on-the-spot analysis and trade recommendations on breaking news;
  • Provide analysis on special situations and corporate actions;
  • Analyze market positions, flows and pricing to identify dislocations and trading opportunities;
  • Have the support of your own mentor

REASONS WHY THIS IS YOUR FUTURE JOB

  • You love tackling complex, fast-paced 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

  • High level of English fluency for oral and written communication
  • Proven interest in financial markets, news and basic economic theory.
