Our two year graduate development programme is designed to provide you with a structured series of rotations across our core trading business in areas such as Trade Finance, Operations, Deals Desk and Analysis, with the potential to rotate into our mid and downstream supply and warehousing and logistics business’, ensuring that you have a comprehensive understanding of all areas of the business, opening up a future of unlimited opportunities within the Trafigura group.
You will be given the opportunity to start the 2 year programme in Geneva, Switzerland, where you will spend your first 2 rotations (16 months). For your final rotation, you will be permanently relocated to the Shanghai office.
The programme encourages an entrepreneurial attitude where participants are highly visible and are expected to create opportunities for themselves through exponential performance and networking.
You will be asked on application to indicate a (non committal) interest for a particular area: Deals Desk, Operations, Trade Finance, Mid - Downstream Supply, Warehousing and Logistics and Analysis but will complete rotations across 3 areas before entering a chosen area, ensuring that on completion of the programme you enter your role with the full understanding of how each function operates and enhances the other in order to maximise profit potential for the group.
*We will ask you why at interview.
It is worth noting that this is not a trading programme: Those looking to enter a commercial (‘front line trading’) role should expect to spend several years within a department after completing the programme ‘mastering’ the product specific techniques and skills that will ensure their long term career, be it management or commercial, is enhanced to guarantee their full career potential.
