Internal Audit evaluates the firm's processes, governance, risk management and controls and identifies where they need to be strengthened to avoid unwanted surprises.
Playing our part
What role does Internal Audit play within UBS?
Our whole-firm view gives us great insight into how our company is run on every level. We consistently check that UBS has the right frameworks and controls in place to avoid unexpected significant losses or damage to the firm’s reputation. We act independently and report only to the Chairman of the Board of Directors and the Audit Committee. Our team plays an important role in ensuring the firm consistently meets its high standards. Our work enables senior management to really understand how risks are being managed so they can make informed decisions about our future direction.
Know more about the role
What are we looking out for?
We want students who show a keen interest in UBS and our industry. You are curious to know how organizations can unleash their potential while still being accountable to our clients, shareholders, communities and our very own people. You are also a future thinker, questioning what the business environment will look like in the future, so we can be proactive in our approach. You have the confidence to speak up when you see where things could be better. UBS is a great place to work and we want people who see challenges as opportunities and have a desire to grow and develop.
What can I do to stand out?
Being prepared for every step of the application process will really help you shine. Think about the role you're are applying for, what genuinely interests you, and what you can bring to the table. Be ready to talk about where your current skills fit in, but also where you can develop and what you want to learn in the role. Read up about us online, reach out to your network, and attend industry events. And lastly, be yourself – a diversity of backgrounds, skills, experiences and mindsets is key to how we work at UBS. We are looking for people who will share our common purpose but use their unique skills and experiences to help us reach our goals in different ways.
What support will I receive?
Your development starts the moment you arrive. From Day One, you’ll benefit from a mixture of on-the-job and formal training, with a line manager who’ll take an active role in your career progression and development. And, depending on your program, we’ll also match you with a mentor or buddy to help you on your way.
A few extra things to remember
Preparation is key – candidates who stand out are always prepared. Ask questions. We love talking about our roles and why UBS is a great place to work. So, don’t be shy.
Hear from our people
Working for UBS Group Internal Audit has allowed me to see very diverse parts of our international organization and meet fellow colleagues and business stakeholders from all around the globe, who inspire and support me in reaching my professional goals. There are not many places within the bank where junior people get such exposure to firm's senior management and where one could experience a little bit of everything, for instance, what it means to be a client advisor of the super-rich or what are the risks of funding a tailored aircraft. I enjoy the variety and complexity of topics I get to work with on a daily basis and am glad to contribute to the overall success of our company.
