Our client is a privately-owned institution of over 50 years standing, based in Geneva.  They sit at the heart of commodity flows and are involved in sourcing, distributing and trading commodity products.  They operate from over 30 locations worldwide and with employees from 40 plus different nationalities their diversity helps to continue their success.


The successful candidate will have a varied workload predominantly focused on financing the group’s activities.
