Main Purpose:
Our two year graduate development programme is designed to provide you with a structured series of rotations across our core trading business in areas such as trade finance, operations, deals desk and analysis, ensuring that you have a comprehensive understanding of all areas of the business, opening up a future of unlimited opportunities within the Trafigura group.

As part of the two year programme, you will have the opportunity to carry out two one year rotations - all based in the Calgary office.
Knowledge Skills and Abilities, Key Responsibilities:

A minimum requirement of a 2:1 / 3.4 GPA (or equivalent) in any discipline and fluent English are essential.

Key Relationships and Department Overview:

The programme encourages an entrepreneurial attitude where participants are highly visible and are expected to create opportunities for themselves through exponential performance and networking.

It is worth noting that this is not a trading programme. Those looking to enter a commercial ('front line trading') role should expect to spend several years within a department after completing the programme , 'mastering' the product specific techniques and skills that will ensure their long term career. As with all employees within the Trafigura group, opportunities for exceptional talent are unlimited and employees can expect to spend time in several locations globally (including some more remote), throughout their development either within their teams, across departments and throughout their career. This ensures they are equipped with the increased cultural awareness and business development skills required for a long term, successful career.
