As an intern at IMC you’ll work on a meaningful project. There are so many things we want to research and explore. You will have the opportunity to work on this project, add your own insights and have an impact. Many interns have seen their work enter production before they’ve even completed their internship. You’ll have a mentor to coach you. But even with their support, believe us, it’s sure to be challenging!
During the first week of the internship, we will teach you everything you need to know so you acquire skills you can directly use during your placement. We will take you through technical training, from option theory to the IMC way of working. But there’s so much more. Our traders and engineers will share their knowledge to get you up to speed and set for success.
Throughout the internship there are opportunities to shadow different desks. In the first few weeks we’ll make time in the program for you to look around, so that during the second part of the internship we can leave it to you. Try to get a feeling for the teams, their differences and what they have in common. And you won’t leave IMC before you have been trading yourself. Mock trading is fun and gives you new insights in what trading at IMC actually means.
During the individual project you’ll stay a full team member. You’ll take part in catch-ups and team meetings, join the team for social outings and help them when help is needed. They might run into a problem you can solve, or perhaps you can build a tool that can make things more efficient or spot the opportunity for a cool side-project. While your priority is to complete your project, you’ll be encouraged to contribute fully to the team too.
Once a year we host our summer internship, starting end of June. Our trading internship lasts for nine weeks and our technology internship for twelve weeks.
