EXPIRY NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more applications.

This scheme is aimed at those with a highly specific postgraduate degree (based around financial mathematical modelling) and direct commercial experience in this area. Please read the following pages carefully for more information.

The Risk Graduate Scheme trains future specialists in quantitative finance and risk management. Once the placements are finished you could be sent out to teams across the whole business. You'll help evaluate and manage the risks that come from our dealing on wholesale commodity markets.

You'll apply all your academic understanding of quantitative finance to real situations and face real commercial issues. And as well as being managed by a senior team member, you'll be encouraged to network within your team and location. All graduates on the Risk Scheme are mentored by a director, so you'll have the opportunity to shine from a very early stage of your career.

And when we say responsibility, we mean it. We'll give you as much as we think you can handle. The more the better. That way you'll make contacts quicker and learn how the business works.

If you find your feet on the first placement, you may even have the chance to stick with it rather than move across the further placements. We'll accommodate you wherever we can. If coming off the scheme is right for you and right for our business, then we'll do just that. One thing is always true: your placements will be on high-profile projects with clearly defined objectives, and you'll be presenting your findings to senior management the moment you start.

What we look for

We're looking for people who've completed a post-graduate degree in a relevant quantitative discipline, such as Quantitative Finance, Financial Engineering or Energy Markets.

You'll be highly numerate and adept at problem solving, and you'll ideally bring relevant commercial experience obtained via an internship, or similar. And you'll have a strong interest in applying your academic skills in an industrial field.

You'll also have the ability to understand and fulfil team goals, as well as listening to team members and acknowledging and valuing their contributions. And you'll know how to set personal goals, achieve them, and encourage others to do the same
