From https://www.trafigura.com/careers/apprenticeship-programme/

If you have decided not to go to university, you are excited by a career in commodity trading and you are happy to work anywhere in the world, we believe we can offer you an unparalleled opportunity. Even with a couple of years’ work experience, if you are hungry, motivated to achieve and want to work at the forefront of physical trading then Trafigura’s Global Commodity Trading Apprenticeship could be for you.


Trafigura’s Global Commodity Trading Apprenticeship can offer you the opportunity to join a particular business function (Deals Desk, Operations, Trade Finance, Mid - Downstream Supply, Warehousing and Logistics) for a year before being fast tracked to take part in our highly competitive graduate programme. Those selected will be offered the chance to start in either Geneva, Houston or Singapore. With a years’ worth of real world company experience your practical expertise will exceed that of external candidates joining the Trafigura graduate programme with Bachelors and Masters Degrees from some of the world’s top institutions. Simply put, opportunities at the end of the programme are unlimited, whether that ultimately be in trading or management.

Depending on the function you are assigned to, you could play a role in charting the course of vessels carrying up 160,000 tonnes of product, given the responsibility to manage the price risk on cargoes worth over USD40 million or even put in charge of financing multiple deals at one time with a combined total worth of over USD400 million. There is no shadowing or making tea. From day one you will be a part of the team and expected to contribute as such. You will be supported fully throughout the programme to ensure you learn and progress as quickly as you can.

Your salary and benefits package will be competitive and, in addition, we will support your accommodation costs over the duration of your time on the programme (if required) - wherever it is in the world that you will be working from.

With a concrete support system from a dedicated manager, recent graduates, programme leads and global heads of function, we will give you real responsibility ensuring unrivalled exposure to the global trading industry.

Yes, it will be tough. The learning curve will be steep and we will expect a huge amount from you in a very short space of time. But if you are willing to put in 100 percent, we will do all we can to ensure you career is propelled at an unprecedented rate, without the need for a formal university education.
