Finance Development Programme

At ED&F Man we work hard to attract and develop the best commercial talent for our international businesses. As a part of this commitment we are now inviting applications for our Finance Development Programme.

Our programme aims to prepare talented individuals for a successful career in our company, enabling them to gain the skills and experiences needed to become a future leader.

The programme offers practical experience working on the front line in a leading global commodities and financial services business, combined with on the job training.

Hear from one of our employees who joined the programme in 2015:

"The exposure you gain to members of the Senior Leadership team as a member of the Programme is unrivalled.

It is apparent that the Leadership team really care about inducting you as a member of the Programme and as a part of the Company at large, it’s good to feel that the Programme is understood top-down."
- Group Finance

The Finance Development Programme is a golden opportunity to fast track a career in commodities. It is not a graduate trainee programme, but an executive-level induction into our world.

The programme is a key pillar for our organisation's talent development and we spend considerable time and resources training, mentoring and developing our GDP employees. If you are lucky enough to secure a position as part of GDP you’ll never look back.
