3rd Tier Application Support Analyst

This role gave me the opportunity to work with various teams within the IT department and understand how they work together to support the business and the CMC platform, which gave me an excellent grounding. Upon completion of my graduate programme, I joined the Trading Application Support Team and moved into the Third Tier Application Support Team earlier this year, where I am now supporting Market Data systems as part of my role. Throughout my time with the company CMC have provided excellent training and support which has ensured that all my transitions have been smooth and in turn helped me develop in my career."

I progressed to become a Quantitative Strategist, as an original member of this new team, greatly increasing my knowledge of high frequency pricing and hedging. As my experience grew I was promoted to Head of Quantitative Pricing and soon after to Head of Quantitative Analysis. My most recent position is Group Head of Trading where I now have responsibility for the overall company trading risk management strategy, managing the Trading Desk, the Quant & Data Science teams, and the Pricing & Risk Development teams. The Company has provided me with excellent opportunities and made my career both challenging and rewarding. CMC also supported me in gaining two professional qualifications which undoubtedly aided my career development."



Senior Management Accountant

"I joined CMC Markets as a Management Accountant having recently graduated from Queen Mary University with a degree in Economics. I decided I wanted to work in finance and pursue a career where I could use my degree and be provided with an opportunity to work towards a professional accountancy qualification. CMC enrolled me onto the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification whilst also giving me valuable insight into how a Finance function works within an organisation. Studying towards the ACCA whilst working for CMC has been a fantastic experience with lots of personal development opportunities, where my work and studies have complimented each other really well. I have been provided with ongoing support throughout my studies and I will soon complete my final exam to qualify as a Chartered Certified Accountant."
