We trade 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 those who want more of the fast-paced, hands-on style of trading and have a higher appetite for risk.

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

Our 10-week trading internship is your chance to experience life as a trader at IMC. You’ll have all the support you need to succeed: a mixture of hands-on and classroom training and a mentor overseeing 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 program.

Your Core Responsibilities: 

  • From day one, you are immersed in real projects, complex problem solving and opportunities to learn from some of the industry’s strongest Traders and Engineers.
  • See what it is like to be a Trader at IMC; develop your trading skills and strategies with our in-house trading simulation
  • Learn about the trading industry and market-making.
  • Work collaboratively in an environment where creativity, teamwork and innovation are recognised and rewarded.
  • Be supported by a mentor who will oversee your progress and professional development.
  • Have the opportunity to secure a full-time role with IMC once you graduate.

Your Skills and Experience: 

  • An academic background in Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics, Actuaries, Finance or Economics, with a minimum Distinction average or equivalent.
  • Commenced your penultimate year of study.
  • Strong analytical skills and desire to solve complicated problems.
  • The ability to make decisions in uncertainty and remain focused under pressure.
  • A genuine passion for financial markets (no prior knowledge or experience is required).
  • The ability to commence in November 2024.

About Us 

IMC is a leading global market maker with offices in Europe, the US, and Asia-Pacific. We use algorithmic trading and advanced technology to buy and sell securities across multiple trading venues.

In the late 1980s, IMC quickly identified the importance of technology in the fast-evolving trading environment. Our passion for innovation continues to drive us today. Although our company has grown rapidly over recent decades, we still approach our work with the same entrepreneurial spirit, emphasizing continuous improvement and innovation. We like our people to think for themselves, and we give them the responsibility and support they need to make an impact.
