  • Previous knowledge of trading systems

NB Please don't apply if you are a fresh graduate.

Benefits

  • Flat hierarchy, focus on teamwork, where people are rewarded on merit and excellence
  • Outstanding benefits, including onsite gym/sauna/fitness classes, extensive medical cover, and excellent professional development opportunities
  • Cutting-edge, beautiful offices in central London
