3) Apply to the role through our career site! When the application asks for your resume, please attach a screenshot of your PLUM and your most recent transcript. We have full access to your entire profile from PLUM, but this is a great reminder to complete it.  



Note: You do not need to complete your PLUM profile or video interview multiple times if you are applying to multiple positions.  Also, we have full access to your entire PLUM profile and will not be using the screenshot, but it is a great reminder for reach of you to have completed it.



Successful candidates will be allocated placements on one of the Sales & Trading desks based on business needs, candidate skills and interest. Placements will be allocated once all successful candidates are hired.
