Industrial placements in the UK

For university students looking for immersive work experience, we offer 6-12 month industrial placements in some of our businesses.

The length of these placements usually requires a break from university studies and must be part of your university degree course. These positions also give you an opportunity to experience life within the financial services industry and specifically at UBS.

We generally hire industrial placements into IT, Risk, Equities (Derivatives, Prime Services, Sales and Trading) and Global Asset Management. Industrial Placements are work-intensive and in some cases are similar to the training or career initiatives you’d experience during our formal internship program.

In some parts of the organization, industrial placements can be parleyed into a career-track graduate position. In other areas, these placements are viewed as more resume-building work that may or may not be leveraged into a future role at UBS.
