Graduate Program
As a graduate within the trading department, you will begin your career within ACT in our 8-month training program, also known as the ACT Graduate Program.

As soon as you enter the program, you will be assigned to an established team based on your skills and interests.
Our Graduate Program is non-rotational, as the training you receive is structured, and industry and product-specific from the get-go. You will receive world-class training in our business and your role, fully tailored to your skills and what you’re hoping to do in your career. Within the program, you will be given the same responsibilities and opportunities to showcase your work as other full-time staff members. While building your own business from day one, we provide you with all the knowledge and skills necessary to become a successful all-round sales trader.


The program is designed to take you out of your comfort zone, taking you on a journey to reach your full potential, challenging you to the fullest but always in a safe and constructive environment.

Success is all about building rewarding client relationships.

I still remember the first day I visited ACT for my job interview. When I opened the door to the trading floor I immediately sensed the high and positive energy. Working at ACT means working in a great atmosphere within a great team. I don’t consider my colleagues as co-workers, but see us more as a group of friends. We help each other out and if you have any questions everybody is more than happy to help you.

Our contribution to reaching our clients’ environmental goals is first and foremost about dealing with people. We highly value our client relationships. We do business in a way that is not so much about price, but about building sincere relationships based on trust.

The thrill of closing deals excites me.

I enjoy being highly independent while still being part of a team. I’ve never experienced a job where time flies this fast! Working at ACT means constantly thinking in order to stay one step ahead, considering what our clients’ needs will be before they have even thought about them themselves. I continue to learn a lot from ACT’s well-built relationships and strong business model. After a solid sales training, I got the opportunities to develop my own style. ACT’s philosophy incorporates investing in people. We invest well in our clients, but even more so in our traders. Personal and team development ranks high on our agenda.
