Cargill Metals works with customers in the global trading and distribution of Iron Ore and Steel products. From its offices worldwide, it serves miners, mills, processors, traders and end users.
The ferrous industry is going through a period of disruptive change. Ever increasing complexity, the impact of ESG, global overcapacity in steel and iron ore, extreme volatility in both raw materials and steel prices are just some of the challenges reshaping the industry and creating opportunities for CMSC to play a major role in the industry’s evolution.
Cargill Metals is a customer focused trading business that aims to provide value added products and services to the ferrous supply chain. The two core pillars of the business include:
- A proprietary trading pillar which aims to generate earnings by trading positions in both the physical and derivatives markets. Conviction is provided by leveraging market and industry insights, analytics, trading and risk management and digitalization.
- A customer focused pillar which aims to drive a less volatile and more sustainable earnings stream. There is indeed a lot of un-monetized value within the ferrous industry and by leveraging a tailored mix of services, solutions and products Cargill Metals has a strong track record that partnering with customers creates opportunities to unlock this value.
Each of these pillars is quite unique but the ability to link both is critical for the success of Cargill Metal’s strategy. The position of Commodity Structuring Manager (CSM) plays a core role in bridging both parts of the business.
Operating within an “opportunity team”, the CSM is responsible to design and develop new products and solutions which best address the customer needs whilst the close collaboration with the Trading & Risk Management pillar of our business will safeguard that embedded risks are identified and priced accordingly.
This role will also have the possibility to develop, manage and create value for customers in the Pacific region.
The person in this role will have the opportunity to work closely with senior leaders within Cargill Metals to develop a deep understanding of customers within the iron ore and steel complex, trading and risk management skills and how to combine these together to create mutually beneficial solutions for Cargill and our customers.
