Getting a job at OSTC does not come easily. Our criteria are stringent and our standards high, but if you become part of our team, you become part of
something special: you're trained the OSTC way, developing skills, teamwork and an attitude that will last a lifetime.
Sam Baker left his home in Exeter to attend the University of Brighton, where he gained an honours degree in Business Administration with Finance.
Upon completion, he applied to our Graduate Training Programme to join the Bromley trading office - now our Head Office - and so in 2005
started his journey with OSTC. Sam fondly remembers his training and early trading career, commuting daily from Brighton to London to work with like-minded people who were passionate about trading. Sam showed much early promise, and his clear dedication and initial success inspired a swift progression to Senior Trader.
Sam was invited to transfer to OSTC’s new trading office in Tunbridge Wells in 2007. Despite the global financial crisis striking soon afterwards, the office was a success story. So much so that Sam and then office manager Alex Alcock were invited to start a joint venture with OSTC - and so OSTC AB Partnership Limited was born. The pair relocated the office to Brighton, where Sam, now the co-managing director, uses links forged with his university to ensure a steady supply of high calibre graduates interested in financial markets. OSTC AB has grown to become a valued local employer, providing dozens of ambitious young traders the opportunity to work in the financial markets without travelling to the capital. At its peak, OSTC AB was our most profitable office per capita, and it continues to thrive.
Sam was nominated ‘alumni of the year’ by the University of Brighton in 2013 and, when his busy schedule allows, he returns to campus as a guest lecturer in business to help inspire the next generation.
OSTC has a unique trading methodology and a comprehensive understanding of what a professional career trader needs to succeed. Proudly unconventional, our training programmes will quickly give the individual the tools and knowledge that they need to meet the daily challenge of trading.
At OSTC training is a long-term commitment. An on-going process that will continue throughout the traders career, our methods are tried, tested and achieve impressive results. Our track record for converting trainees into successful traders is unrivalled anywhere in the global marketplace.
I have been working at OSTC full-time (Less than a year)
- Insightful learning experience provided before employment at OSTC Brighton office.
- Provide an appropriate base salary regardless of performance.
- Professional yet warm and welcoming work environment, everyone is very friendly and helpful.
- Great location and work/life balance, despite the longer hours experienced when compared to other careers.
- A great boss, insightful and understanding.
- Some may find the long hours spend in front of multiple screens and seated quite tiring.
There are no other cons in my view of working for OSTC.
I applied online. I interviewed at OSTC (Swansea, Wales) in August 2017.
Overall a quick and smooth process. One face to face interview and heard back within a week. A few tests to test your maths capability but nothing too difficult. Would recommend
