Learn more than you thought possible

This is only the beginning

Time will fly, but we’ll make sure that you’ll get all the experience you’ll need with us. No matter which business area you choose, the insight, opportunities and exposure we offer are second-to-none.

How you will develop

What will you get out of this?

From the moment you join UBS you will be supported by our welcoming Junior Talent team. They’ll be on hand throughout your internship for anything you might need, along with your line manager and buddy who will work more closely with you day-to-day within your local business area.

Over the course of the program, you will create a great network of peers through the many networking opportunities on the internship. We find out interns tend to stay in touch with one another long after their internship has concluded.
 
Along with the skills and relationships you will gain, you’ll get an invaluable hands-on experience of what it would be like to work at UBS as a graduate and insight into what makes us a great place to work. Finally, if you perform during on your internship with us, you can also receive an offer to join our GTP Program following your graduation!

What support will you receive?

Your Internship will start with an interactive induction program, designed to introduce you to all aspects of life at UBS. Following your induction, you’ll be enrolled in our Ready 4 Work training, technical training that is designed to prepare you for your internship role. The length and content of the training will vary depending on the business area you choose to apply to, but the training for each Internship program is specifically designed to ensure that you are fully up-to-speed with what you need to know, before you then join your team to start your internship role.

However, the support doesn’t end once you join your team. Throughout your time on the internship, you will have the opportunity to attend further interactive, informative sessions to help broaden your skill set. These can vary from Lunch & Learns with our senior leaders, to networking opportunities with colleagues from across UBS. All our sessions are designed to help you get a greater understanding and insight into UBS as an employer and to help inform your next career step following the internship.
