Simon English: Trader for hire (no women bosses or early starts)

Click to follow

Outlook Ring ring. Trader Steve is on the line and he's cheesed off, as usual. Delightfully unreconstructed (depending on taste of course) Steve is, unusually for him, worried about the future. He's had a job offer, but the bad news is this: "They want me to be at my desk by 7am. Every day. And report to a woman. A woman. That's not going to work. And anyway everyone knows I have a lie-in on Fridays. I am a gentleman. I can't be getting into the office every time the stock market wants to open and start mucking around."

He remains available for new career opportunities.
