Trading - Graduate Programme

The Graduate Programme

During the 24 month graduate programme you will gain an invaluable insight into our business, whilst developing your own skills and capabilities. Following a company induction, you will be working day to day as a fully integrated team member over the course of 4 six month rotations.

Between each rotation, the graduate programme class is brought together for ‘Learning Weeks’ to build on the soft and technical skills required for your permanent management level position at programme end. 

Alongside your rotational placements, graduates will also tackle high profile business projects, enabling you to build a broader picture of our business and how the various functions work together. 

Your time on the graduate programme is supported by a dedicated line manager, team buddy, business mentor and HR support. Clear objectives are set at the outset of each rotational placement, with developmental conversations and one to one meetings provided on a regular basis. 

The graduate programme also provides some memorable social and community events, ensuring you build strong relationships with your peers and that we contribute positively within the local community.
There really is no better way to start your career at GVC!

The Trading Function

Our trading function is the heartbeat of our business; responsible for all aspects of pricing and management of our sportsbook. The trading team offer our customers the opportunity to bet on as many as 250,000 events per year, as wide and varied as the Grand National and the Premier League through to Speedway, UFC and TV events such as Big Brother and Strictly Come Dancing. 

As a graduate in the trading function, you could be setting odds for our sportsbook products - pre-match or in-play. You could also find yourself supporting the data and content teams who ensure information on the website is correct and displayed in the right way, or you could be focused on understanding customer betting patterns and taking related action as part of the trading insight, risk and control teams. 

During each rotation you will be acting as a full member of the team. Some rotations are compulsory in order to give you a robust grounding in Trading. Other rotations are optional, driven by graduate preference and business need.

Compulsory Rotations:

  • Sports / Racing Trading
  • Trading Performance

Optional Rotations:

  • Risk Control
  • Bet Acceptance
  • Trading Ops Retail
  • Trading Delivery

Wherever you are placed, no two days will be the same and you will continually be challenged within a fast paced and vibrant environment.

Your Professional Development

As a Trading graduate, you will also have the option to undertake additional personal development fully funded by the business. Typical courses undertaken include Project Management or Operations Management.
