Our client is a niche but very well established trading and distribution company with offices in several regions of the world. Principal product areas are polymers (polyolefins, commodity polymers, engineering polymers and masterbatch) and chemicals (packaged industrial chemicals)
Growth and succession has led to the need to hire a Senior Trader who will develop existing and new product areas in general industrial chemicals. These could be general industrial or petrochemicals products such as alkanes, alkenes, styrene, glycols and some inorganic products (acids/alkalis) but not ones too volatile or large in volume; e.g. benzene or naphtha.
This role will ideally be based in the New York headquarters or elsewhere in the US close to hubs of trading activity (Houston for example).
