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.
If so, then join IMC as a Trading Intern! Why? Because here your decisions have direct impact on the company’s trading profits and IMC is a place where creativity, teamwork and innovation are recognized and rewarded. Traders actively build and enhance the quality of our electronic trading strategies, requiring superior analytical, mathematical, and computing skills. As a trader, you will have the freedom to find your niche within the firm and excel.

As an Intern within IMC you will be supported by both a Mentor and an intern lead who will oversee your projects and professional development. You will have access to classroom theory sessions, mock trading and desk rotations, not to mention our incredible social activities and events.
