Rotational Program & Internship

The core objective of the Rotational Program is to identify and develop the next generation of leaders across Merchant Operations, Finance, or potentially within CCI’s commercial businesses. Throughout the program, participants will have regular interaction with the leaders of our Merchant Operations and Finance groups as well as our commercial businesses to gain an understanding of our approach to various opportunities across global markets.

This is a two-year rotational program where you will gain exposure to a variety of support functions including: physical operations, settlements, trading operations, FP&A, corporate accounting, credit, tax, treasury, and product control as well as work on special projects around strategic initiatives and strategy for the organization.

Associates will participate in four different six-month rotations among these different groups, where they will gain exposure to our commercial side of our business in addition to the core functions of each rotation. Rotations will be matched based on where there are the best development and growth opportunities for Associates.

Training will be provided to provide a well-rounded understanding of the industry as well as technical skills. At any point during the two-year program a group, either within commercial support or the commercial business, can extend an offer of employment to the Associate and if they accept the offer the Associate would no longer rotate to the next group.

The U.S. Summer Internship Rotational Program is a ten-week internship where you will experience a shortened version of one, or occasionally two, rotations from the full time Merchant Operations & Finance Rotational Program. 

We seek candidates who are forward thinking, solutions oriented, and passionate about building their careers. Candidates should be pursuing their bachelor’s in Accounting, Business, Economics, Mathematics, Engineering, Finance, Statistics, Physics or a related field of study.
