LOCATIONS: Geneva, Switzerland / Houston, Texas, USA
If you have decided not to go to university, you are excited by a career in commodity trading and you are happy to work anywhere in the world, we believe we can offer you an unparalleled opportunity. Even with a couple of years’ work experience, if you are hungry, motivated to achieve and want to work at the forefront of physical trading then Trafigura’s Commodity Trading Apprenticeship could be for you.
Trafigura’s Commodity Trading Apprenticeship can offer you the opportunity to join a particular business function (corporate finance, Deals Desk, Operations, Trade Finance, Mid - Downstream Supply, Warehousing and Logistics) for a year before being fast tracked to take part in our highly competitive graduate programme. Those selected will be offered the chance to start in either Geneva or Houston. With a years’ worth of real world company experience your practical expertise will exceed that of external candidates joining the Trafigura graduate programme with Bachelors and Masters Degrees from some of the world’s top institutions. Simply put, opportunities at the end of the programme are unlimited, whether that ultimately be in trading or management.
Depending on the function you are assigned to, you could play a role in charting the course of vessels carrying up 160,000 tonnes of product, given the responsibility to manage the price risk on cargoes worth over $40 million or even put in charge of financing multiple deals at one time with a combined total worth of over $400 million. There is no shadowing or making tea. From day one you will be a part of the team and expected to contribute as such. You will be supported fully throughout the programme to ensure you learn and progress as quickly as you can.
