About Us

 

We make a huge investment in everyone, offering great career development opportunities. Our people are at the heart of everything we do and we offer a fast-paced environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you’ll need to be your best self. It’s not just our colleagues we look after - we’ve got a responsibility to our customers too and we work hard on our ambition that nobody is harmed by gambling.

 

The role

 

Sports Trading is fast, furious and fun and you don't need to be an expert to join our team, just a willingness to learn and a healthy interest in all things sport. We’re looking for enthusiastic and high energy people to join our team of Traders in London. This team work together to offer customers the best odds on Football, Tennis and other sports such as European Basketball, Volleyball and European Ice Hockey. You’ll produce odds on events worldwide, making sure that the most attractive prices are always available to customers and that their heads aren’t turned by our competitors.

 

It’s vital that betting prices are published accurately and immediately, with every throw from the oche or steal from the long line. You’ll use cutting edge technology to calculate odds based on form, probability, and ongoing changes once events begin. The work can be fast paced at times but the environment is relaxed, inclusive and rewarding.

 

You’re a sports fan who understands or has the capacity to learn the principles of trading and the calculation of odds. You’ll learn the tricks of the trade from a team who have a wealth of experience and sports knowledge. All traders have the potential to generate or lose income for our business, so strong mathematical skills (ideally GCSE at C grade or equivalent) and an appreciation of risk are essential.

 

You have good attention to detail and a high level of concentration when it counts. A common sense approach and a logical thinker, you'll always have your eye on the ball (literally!) and will enjoy the excitement of live play.

 

Our team cover live sport 24/7 and working patterns vary regularly and depend on the sports calendar throughout the year, so if you don’t like the humdrum of a 9-5 routine, this might be just right for you. As well as a competitive salary and reward package, we can offer lots of development, training and a clear career path in our business.

 

So if you want to channel your inner Serena or Federer from the comfort of our friendly and fun office, we'd love to hear from you.

 

What we offer

 

We’ll welcome you on-board with 33 days holiday including bank holidays (not to mention an extra day for your birthday), a rewarding bonus scheme, healthcare (or a cash alternative), an attractive pension package, life assurance, healthy gym discounts and a flexible benefits scheme. Not only that but flexible working up to 80% from home, excellent career development and progression opportunities and focus on a balanced work life culture.
