I first joined SIG as a Trading Operations Analyst and was excited by the fast pace that the trading firm operates at. From day one, I attended education classes where I learned all the concepts, technology, and the wide range of products we trade. These classes throughout the Trading Operations Analyst Programme helped me to understand the depth of SIG’s business and I was quickly able to use my newly learned technical skills to impact our work.
The majority of my time on the programme was spent rotating between various departments. I got to take over daily tasks, shadow colleagues, and work on my own projects that I saw through to completion. It gave me the opportunity to combine my love for finance and with the ability to solve analytical problems. After completing the Trading Operations Analyst Programme, I have now been placed into my permanent team. It is exciting to be a full-time member now as I oversee daily desk operations and work closely with the traders. If you enjoy solving analytical and mathematical problems and like to work across different teams and departments, then I highly recommend the Trading Operations Analyst Programme.
