The Successful Applicant

The profile needed for this business is split between two components - a technical competency and the right attitude/ personality to fit into this culture:

You will ideally be a Certified Charted Accountant, who will have likely have trained within a public practice, before moving into a Commodity Trading business. You will be comfortable with the pace of a trading environment, but looking for perhaps more responsibility. You will be a team-player, happy to roll up your sleeves and involve yourself with the daily menial tasks to get the job done, enjoying the basics of the accounting function, alongside the more strategic analysis work. Naturally inquisitive, you will have the desire to challenge the status quo, looking to improve processes without wanting to re-write the rule-book.
