You will be offered extensive training covering all aspects of our financial dealing and financial sales operations. You will be required to take and successfully pass the Securities Institute Regulatory Paper. Upon successful completion of your training, you will be offered a permanent position within one of the Financial Dealing or Financial Sales teams and so prior sales experience and/or strong interpersonal skills would be an advantage.
The Suitable Candidates
You will need at least 3 A levels at grade “B” or above and ideally have a 2.1 degree or above. You will need to be able to demonstrate that you are highly numerate, IT literate and have a real interest in betting and/or financial markets.
Ideally, you will have taken a gap year and/or have 1 to 2 years’ postgraduate experience. As we are rapidly expanding our operations into continental Europe, fluency in Italian, Spanish, French or German, though not a requirement, would be a distinct advantage. Equally Portuguese and Mandarin would be useful languages to have. You will need to be able to work effectively under pressure and be prepared to work unconventional hours with an underlying enthusiasm to serve our clients. You will be self-confident with a friendly out-going manner and have the ability to work as an effective team-member.
