ex-Head of Commodities shares Career Tips on Jan 13

Despite recent market turmoil, SpringBoard TM has continued to fill front office roles for our success stories and share front office career information with you and other members of the SpringBoard community. With the new year, we are launching a Career Tips Series to share and discuss career tips on how to do well in different finance front office roles. We start on Jan 13 with commodities trading.

Led by Mr Colin O’Shea, Director of Business Development at Global Commodities, the workshop will discuss the challenges of different roles in commodities trading and basic trade types traders use. Register here.

After the workshop, you are invited to mingle with our guests who are experienced professionals in the industry. This offers you the opportunity to get up close and learn from a potential future colleague or supervisor. Participants who are also interested in our Career Networking Workshop on Dec 10 can sign up for both events at a package discount.
