Have you wondered what it is like to be a real stock market trader? Have you been secretly memorising ticker symbols? If you happen to live in the UK, here is that once-in-a-lifetime chance: via hereisthecity.com, Century Films and the BBC are looking for 5 non-City types to take part in a trading experiment:
Participants will be provided with capital by a successful hedge fund entrepreneur and will be given the opportunity, after some training, to trade in the markets.
In addition to strutting your stuff on a trading floor, you will also get to keep any profit share, as you would in a real-life hedge fund!
This offer is not open to anyone with actual professional experience of trading, so investment banking types on gardening leave need not apply.
Interested parties should please contact Sascha or Satnam on 0207 378 6108 or 07851 043 737. Or e-mail a picture of yourself, a contact number and brief background details to: firstname.lastname@example.org
