Developing knowledge & skills
At ED&F Man, we are committed to investing in our people. We provide the tools to develop knowledge and skills and the opportunities to gain experience and learn from others on the job.
We have a broad based e-learning curriculum, enabling employees to proactively manage their learning and career development. We strive to support every employee in maximising their abilities and fulfilling their potential. Training topics include management & leadership, personal effectiveness, team development and commercial & technical knowledge.
For graduates and early stage career development, we immerse people in different facets of our businesses so that they develop an in-depth understanding of our end-to-end commercial processes. Training may also include an overseas assignment. By the end of the programme, new recruits will be trading commodities – coffee, sugar, molasses, grains or pulses – or working on a brokerage desk in our financial services division , or contributing to our corporate functions. At ED&F Man, career development never stops and soon it is the trainees who mentor others while continuing to add to their own knowledge and experience.
