Working in ... Legal or Risk

Do you have a keen eye for detail and a strong sense of integrity and justice? Do you enjoy identifying, analyzing and helping to control and manage risk?

Who we are: 

Legal (or Group General Counsel) – We are the in-house law firm for UBS. We help protect the firm through legal advice and handling cases.
Risk (or Group Risk Control) – As one of the world's leading financial services firms, taking risk is an integral part of our business. Our Group Risk Control teams aim to protect our capital and reputation by achieving an appropriate balance between risk and return.

What we do:

Legal (or Group General Counsel) provides all of the firm's legal advice and manages the advice we get from our outside counsel. We review incidents of legal risk (and potential legal risk) and make recommendations on how to handle them. We also manage and report on litigation and other contentious matters and work closely with Group Risk Control on legal risk aspects of operational risk, as well as overseeing our Group Legal risk framework.

The Group Risk Control teams promote good risk management and set boundaries for risk-taking activity in all areas of the business. Our goal is to foster an environment where revenues can grow and shareholder value can be created without jeopardizing stability or compromising our reputation. Reflecting the wide scope of our activities, you might focus on the traditional banking risks of credit, market, treasury, or country risk. Or, your job may address the many consequential risks inherent in our business such as compliance, conduct or operational risk.

And, whether you join a legal or risk team, you'll be able to grow your skills and build experience in a high performing, collaborative work environment.

We, not just me:

Together. That's how we do things. We act with integrity, respecting and trusting one another. That’s what makes our partnerships with colleagues and clients successful and long lasting.
