New York / London / Hong Kong ― 11 October, 2022 ― Options Technology, the leading Capital Markets services provider, today announced the launch of its 2023 Graduate and Placement Programme. The launch of the 2023 programme follows the news that Options hired over 60 graduates and placements in 2022, a record intake for the firm.
The award-winning Graduate & Placement Programme offers graduates in-depth technical training and leadership development within state-of-the-art training facilities tailored to meet the rigorous demands of the capital markets industry.
Successful candidates will undergo an intensive training programme in Belfast, the firm’s principal technical support and engineering hub, and will provide successful candidates with a broad understanding of Options and its technology, capital markets and the wider financial services sector.

From cultivating talent through leadership and executive coaching programmes to funding a range of professional qualifications, we have always endeavoured to invest in our people, the true fabric of our business.
2022 saw Options invest in our largest-ever intake of new graduates and placement students, cementing our reputation as one the most exciting tech employers in the sector. Our programme offers graduates the chance to forge a career at the intersection of financial technology and capital markets, and I would encourage all graduates, indiscriminate of their course of study, to apply.”
Options will host an in-person careers evening to launch this year’s programme next Wednesday, October 19, at Whites Tavern, Belfast. We welcome anyone interested in applying to come down and join the team for a drink, a bite to eat and to get the latest on this year’s programme.
