The Operations Analyst Program is SIG’s rotational development programprogramme that offers a broad and in-depth exposure to business operations at SIG. It will prepare you for an operations position that immediately impacts SIG’s business.
You will spend the first six months of the programprogramme gaining in-depth exposure to trading by rotating through multiple operations teams. Your rotations may include trade support, compliance, mid-office operations, or accounting. At the end of your rotations, you will be placed in a permanent role that matches your skill set and interests, as well as our business needs.
In addition to rotations, the programprogramme includes classroom training sessions focused on developing company-specific knowledge, technical skills, and business effectiveness skills. Weeklong classroom sessions, which are led by business heads at SIG, take place in-between rotations and help solidify concepts learned on the desk.
Throughout the programprogramme, you will be mentored by a senior member of SIG’s Operations team, who will work with you to guide your development process. Your mentor will be available as a resource for you, to provide insight and advice as you grow with SIG.
Our Operations team fosters an intellectually stimulating environment that is open to new ideas. Our flat hierarchy allows for Operations Analysts to work with key members of the firm and impact our business as soon as they start.
Our Operations Analyst (OA) Programme offers a unique and broad learning experience. The programme provides a blend of education, skill building and exposure to SIG and to the financial services industry. The programme prepares you for an operations position that immediately impacts SIG’s business.
During the twelve months of the OA Programme, you will be embedded in various rotations within SIG’s trading operations teams to gain in-depth knowledge of key business areas such as trade support, trading operations, settlements and equity finance. These rotations will incorporate hands-on experience through daily activities and project work. At the end of your rotations, you will leverage your diverse knowledge of the business and network of colleagues as you are placed in a permanent role that matches your skills and interests as well as our business needs.
In addition to rotations, the programme includes classroom training sessions focused on developing company-specific knowledge, technical skills, and business effectiveness skills. Weeklong classroom sessions, which are led by senior managers at SIG, take place in between rotations and help solidify concepts learned on the desk. You will also have the opportunity to attend classroom sessions at our global head office just outside of Philadelphia, where you will meet with and learn from our US based colleagues.

Our Operations internship is designed to introduce you to SIG’s business areas and unique culture. You will be assigned to a specific desk where you will work on a combination of long-term projects and daily tasks. In addition, you will have the opportunity to spend time on other desks to broaden your understanding of operations as a whole. Our summer programprogramme provides an informative internship experience and serves as the primary hiring source for our full-time Operations Analyst programprogramme.
As an intern, you will participate in classes that will cover key theoretical subjects through a series of lectures offered either during the workday or after hours. Topics include technical training, operations & trading desk overviews as well as probability and expectation.
