UBS Career Comeback

Our door is always open for those looking to carry on where they left off.

Purpose. Presence. Possibilities. We’ve got a lot to offer.

On a break, or looking for a change in direction, and ready to come back to a corporate environment? Searching for the right role or opportunity? With our strong culture, great reputation and lots of opportunities to build your career, this is the perfect place to take your potential and experience to the next level.

Opportunities ahead

Whether you work with clients, manage risks (or projects, or people), analyze data or write code, you’ll find interesting opportunities in all of our business areas and regions. Check out our current open roles (all of which are open to returners).

Come and join us

We’re (specifically) looking to hire experienced professionals who want to return to work either full- or part-time.

Who qualifies as a “comebacker”? If you have been on a career break for two years or more, are ready to make a complete career shift back into the corporate world, if you are an entrepreneur and want to (re)start your career, or if you are ready to make an upgrade to a more complex role – we have the tools to get you started. And, unlike our competitors, we’re all in – no temp roles or “returnships” for us. We’re hiring talented people who want to build long-term careers here. So, if you have the right level of skill and experience, one of our many permanent roles will give you the perfect opportunity to thrive with us.

You can join us any time and any place globally, in any of our business divisions and in any region. If you’re an experienced professional who meets the criteria above, Career Comeback can help you get acclimated, connected and up to speed quickly.

Why join us as a returner?

We see a career change or break as a source of transferable skills and diverse experiences that can bring you back to the corporate world stronger than ever. Diversity of experience, background and thought are especially appreciated here.

UBS is a great place to work and we care about our people. We know the shift back to a corporate environment can be many things – exciting, stretching, challenging and sometimes even a bit overwhelming. With UBS Career Comeback, you’ll get award-winning, personalized and timely support throughout your transition along with access to a global cohort of returners to collaborate, learn and grow together.

And another thing: we’re a global powerhouse, with strengths in wealth and asset management, investment banking, personal and corporate banking, and sustainable finance. That means we’ve always got room for great talent and a wide variety of interesting roles and career paths to follow. It’s a great environment to continuously learn, grow and shape your career.

As a returner, you may be looking for both flexibility and empowerment in your daily work. We support hybrid working for most roles, and we’re also open to alternative work arrangements like part-time working and job-share arrangements. Depending on your role and preferences, you’ll define your own work model.
