Our Assistant Trader Internship is the perfect opportunity for high performing students interested in a quantitative role within the financial markets. The internship provides a unique opportunity to gain insight into trading on international exchanges for students who are about to enter their final year in university.
Working from our modern and fun Dublin office, this could be the first step of your career in trading. You will be immersed in SIG’s unrivalled education programme that teaches the skill of making rational decisions in an environment of uncertainty.
The Assistant Trader Internship
The internship will combine class room based education, taught by our education team and senior traders, and research-based projects for a trading desk.
Along with fellow interns, you’ll be exposed to simulations of options floor trading to help you gain a deeper understanding of the risks associated with trading options, how best to hedge these risks, and ultimately how to apply game theory to your trading.
Throughout the internship you’ll attend poker sessions to hone your decision making skills and teach you to employ a mathematical approach to the decisions you make.
The 2018 Assistant Trader Internship Programme runs for 10 weeks from June to August. We also offer placements between 3-12 months. Successful interns may be invited back to join our Assistant Trader Programme upon graduation from university.
Our Assistant Trader Interns are the brightest students who have a strong work ethic and the determination to match. The best traders excel in an area they are passionate about - be it gaming, sports, or the arts, while also having outstanding quantitative and maths skills.
We successfully recruit students from a variety of academic backgrounds. Experience in, or knowledge of, financial markets is not required as our unrivalled education programme will equip you with the training you need to become a successful trader, although we welcome those with an interest in the area.
Interested students are encouraged to attach a short cover letter explaining why they are interested in trading.
**We hire on a rolling basis, and therefore strongly encourage students to apply early. Applications will close on December 8, 2017. Any CVs received after this date may not be considered.**
