    Sports trading operators wanted: the Bermuda Job Board

Six Bermudians are to be hired as “sports trading operators” by an international algorithmic trading company which is setting up an office on the island.

The jobs are advertised on the Department of Workforce Development’s Bermuda Job Board.

Successful applicants, the ad says, will work five shifts a week, mostly during the evenings from 5pm to midnight. Shifts will include weekends and public holidays as the company operates seven days a week. Hirees will “undergo in-depth training on the systems and processes which will be used” with training to take place “overseas at the head office”.

Once trained, the ad says, employees’ key responsibilities will include “monitoring live events and processing data in real time, monitoring the automated systems, following defined escalation procedures when issues occur, supporting other group operational teams located around the world”.

Applicants, the ad says, “must have a healthy dose of common sense; a great attitude; attention to detail and the ability to concentrate on the task at hand, irrespective of background noise and activity”.

The ad also calls for applicants with “strong computer/digital skills and basic numeric skills”. Short-listed candidates, the ad says, “will undergo a thorough background check as well as attitude and computer skills testing”.

Interested parties are asked to reply in writing to consulting firm, Performance Solutions Ltd, which is assisting with the recruitment process.

Kelly Francis, founder and president of Performance Solutions, referred enquiries to UK-based spokesperson Mike Richards, who declined to provide details about the nature of the business.

“We are a private organisation,” he said. “We have used a recruiter, Kelly Francis, and we have utilised lawyers to help us to set up there, which we are in the process of doing. We’re not one that wants stories being written about us. We don’t advertise our brand.”
