Your expertise

You need to be enrolled at university, studying towards a degree with a placement year and be on track for, a 2:1 or the equivalent in your first undergraduate degree. It doesn’t matter what you’re studying. (Really, it doesn’t.) But we’d like to see evidence that you can: 

- analyze a problem, take a view and come to a decision 
- plan, organize and communicate well 
- make things happen 
- stick with a task 
- work in a team 
- come up with ideas

Perhaps you’ve organized a fundraising event or taken part in team sports? Or persevered and passed an exam in a subject you found challenging? Think about how things you’ve achieved match the skills we’re after.

Your Program

On this 12 month industrial placement, you’ll get to join one of our teams within UBS Asset Management. You’ll still be working toward your university degree course while getting the opportunity to be a real part of the team, working with our experts and learning about the industry, our clients, our firm and a specific area of it. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to develop new skills and make contacts. And if you impress us, your placement may result in a full time graduate position.
