Working at UBS

You can build a great career here.

We're known as a great place to work, whatever the business area, role or life stage. We work hard to be a responsible and supportive employer, enabling our employees to balance work and their personal life in ways that work for them. Here are just a few examples of the benefits available to employees across the firm.

Many of our locations have comprehensive Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) to help employees deal with issues like stress, illness, personal conflict, finances, bereavement, mental health, performance and elder care challenges. Employees in some locations can also access company-provided or subsidized health services, child care and fitness options.

In the US, our gender-neutral child care leave policy enables the parent to take up to 20 weeks of paid leave following the birth, adoption or foster care placement of the employee's (or domestic partner’s) child. In Switzerland, new fathers can take up to 10 days of paid paternity leave in the first year. In addition, they can either take up to 30 calendar days of unpaid leave or reduce their employment level to 80% for up to six months.

Employees in Switzerland can request a Time Flex model (e.g., teleworking, part time, or job-sharing arrangements) and explore partial retirement options from age 58. In the UK and US, a variety of part time, flexible, job-sharing and home-working options are available to employees with amenable roles.

Employees in APAC may request flexible work arrangements (part time, home working, variable hours, etc.) to meet their personal needs while remaining productive and successful in their careers. We offer generous parental leave and family care leave for employees to take care of their family members. Our EAP supports employees and their immediate family members on a range of topics such as family concerns and personal development.
