Internship Quantitative Finance Trading

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 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.

 

YOUR JOURNEY AS A TRADER INTERN

Our 9-week trading internship is your chance to experience life as a trader at IMC via meaningful and challenging projects. You’ll have all the support you need to succeed: a mixture of hands-on and classroom training, and a mentor who’ll oversee your work and professional development. Where you go from here is up to you – the majority of our interns secure a graduate position at the end of the programme.
