Graduate Recruitment landscape

Our graduate recruitment programme is an 8 week course devised for aspiring traders by Met Group founders, Steven Gordon and Michael Jacobs and now overseen by one of our earliest “graduates”, Gansham Halai.

The course, in its eighth year, combines theory and practice. It is divided into two parts. The first four weeks are spent in the classroom, understanding fundamental and technical analysis, the two main pillars of trading. In fundamental analysis you will study the economic factors that drive markets and the effect of decision making by key policy makers, with a particular focus on short term interest rate and oil markets. In technical analysis you will learn how to analyse past price changes with the aim of forecasting future price movements. The second four weeks of the course are about implementing the skills and strategies you have learned in live simulated market situations. You will get to experience a true trading floor environment and have access to our state of the art trading platforms. Your teachers will be some of The City’s sharpest minds (academics and traders).

The course is competitive and intense but never ruthless. Our aim is to nurture new talent, and you will be continually assessed throughout the 8 weeks. If you make it through, you will join a trading room that includes many previous graduates plus some of the industry’s most experienced traders. One will become your mentor as you start trading real money.

If you are a university graduate with a minimum of a 2.1 degree and with the bundle of skills that mark out the best traders (intelligence, ambition, numeracy, open-mindedness, flexibility, creativity, robustness, competitiveness), please visit our microsite to learn more and apply.
