Our Pathways

The Future Leaders Programme has two paths: Operations or Engineering. In this structured development programme, you will be exposed to all aspects of the electronics recycling business through rotations within operations or engineering – whichever path you choose. Across both paths you will have the opportunity to work on a variety of capital projects, new equipment installation/commissioning, and continuous/process improvement initiatives across our continental Europe operations.

The Commercial Trainee Programme is a structured, rotational development programme designed to expose you to all commercial trading aspects of the metals recycling industry.

Throughout the rotations, you will gain exposure to, and knowledge about, the various functional departments within SMM that support the commercial operation, such as logistics, export, shipping, purchasing, sales, and planning. This integrated approach across the different work environments at SMM will provide you with a diverse experience.
