We are seeking passionate graduates to join us in developing award-winning trading platforms and tools, all crafted in-house. As the original founders of the industry, we have a responsibility to ensure our technology is modern, stable, and secure in order to provide the best user experience.

As an IG Graduate Trainee, you will spend time in different teams across the business and learn about the full breadth of our products, including our native mobile trading apps, a low-latency web platform and the high-performance backend systems.

When you start at IG, we will work with you to build a tailored learning plan with placements that are best suited to your skills and interests. We also offer opportunities for people to build skills in other areas of the business, with placements in machine learning, security, and DevOps.

You will work at the heart of our business, helping to ensure the continuing high performance of our core trading systems. You will contribute to a range of creative projects encompassing the full breadth of modern software engineering.

Our Graduate Programme:  

    • Lasts 18 months: three 5-month placements, and three additional 1-month placements
    • Involves placements working alongside our expert developers, tech leaders and business functions
    • Includes shorter placements in related areas, designed to give you an in-depth overview of IG

As a trainee you will get:

    • Hands on experience
    • Formal training sessions on software development
    • Opportunities for professional and personal development
    • Support in developing a wide variety of technical and business skills
    • A buddy to offer informal advice about the culture at IG and help you settle in

Keen to apply? 

    • You should have or be about to complete a degree, ideally in Computer Science or Engineering. However, we also consider other STEM subjects if you can demonstrate your programming knowledge
    • You are passionate about technology, possibly have some prior real-world experience
    • You are keen to learn and apply modern technologies in a dynamic business environment
    • You thrive in a dynamic and innovative environment and enjoy working with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds

Working at IG

From day one, we have been breaking the mould – taking on the challenge to deliver an unmatched experience for our clients and raise the bar for tomorrow’s opportunities. Our first venture created a whole new category of trading and today, almost five decades later, we are still leading the way as the world’s No.1 CFD provider.1

We are an organisation of positive problem-solvers united and inspired by our purpose, which is to power the pursuit of financial freedom for the ambitious. We are constantly evolving and innovating for the better, making us one of the most dynamic and exciting companies in the FTSE 250.

We have operations in 20 countries across five continents that serve ambitious go-getters all over the globe, while our local operations are supported by service centres in Krakow, Bengaluru, Johannesburg, and Shenzhen as well as our London head office.

Over 400,000 active clients trust our industry-leading financial services and technology. Our products provide efficient, flexible access to more than 19,000 markets for financially driven people who love a challenge as much as we do.

We are an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. As part of our inclusive culture, your views will be championed, and our organizational structure makes senior management visible and accessible.

Join IG and you will be joining the best in an always-moving industry. We are constantly improving our systems, while experimenting with machine learning approaches, such as predictive analytics and NLP.

 Career Opportunities: 

Not just anyone can help us maintain our industry leadership. We work in a fast-paced environment, and we expect the best from you. You will be tenacious, curious, eager, and open-minded. In return, you will be recognized for work with a visible effect on the business and offered clear paths to progress.

You will have great opportunities to learn and expand your skill set, with the flexibility to develop using software tools of your choice on our high-spec hardware, including Java 8, Spring Framework, Clojure, Tomcat RESTful services, C++, Oracle RAC, C++, Swift, Kotlin, HTML5, JavaScript, Scala, Python, Kafka, ActiveMQ, MongoDB, Oracle RDMS, OBIEE, Tableau, AWS, and Hadoop Big Data.

On top of technical skills, you will have a chance to further your professional and personal development (communication, presentation, prioritization, career development).

Our work and office culture: 

We support a ‘hybrid’ way of working that is neither fully office-based nor fully remote, and will provide you with a high-spec PC or MacBook with all the tools provided for you to work both at home and in the office.

Please note that we do not offer fully remote working.

We expect the majority of people to spend two days a week in the office; depending on your role, working requirements and business needs this may vary. We are happy to answer any questions you have during the application process.

Our Process:  

After submitting your application using our online tool we will be in touch if we would like you to complete an online coding test and few competency-based questions.

If you are successful, we will contact you to arrange a phone interview to find out more about you, your studies and why you want to work at IG.

After this step, we will be in touch if we would like to invite you to one of our Discovery days.

This will be an opportunity for you to meet graduates currently on the scheme and ask questions of the teams you would be working with. These are as much about you learning all you can about IG and the role as us assessing your fit.

Please make the most of all your interactions with us to find out as much as you can about the company and the position available and reach out if you have any questions.
