Our Structure

Group Internal Audit (GIA)

GIA assesses UBS's governance, risk management and control environment in all divisions globally. We are a supervisory function, independent of business management and risk control. We provide senior management with an objective view of how the firm's risks are being managed and we report directly to the Chairman of the Board of Directors and the Audit Committee. Working at GIA gives you insight into various businesses, locations, functions and products, exposure to management and the opportunity to develop your expertise and your professional network.

Auditors take part in audits across EMEA, in close collaboration with GIA teams in other locations. In audits, we assess how the businesses being audited are managing their risks, how well the business has designed its controls, whether they are working effectively and what the impact of control deficiencies are. If we find areas where management needs to take action, we document audit issues, root causes and risks and communicate them clearly and convincingly as agents of change within the firm. Audit work may require up to 60% travel depending on the area of specialization.

The Issue Assurance team supports the firm's ongoing efforts to strengthen the control environment by reviewing the actions that the business has taken to remediate issues and assessing whether these have effectively and sustainably addressed the relevant risks.

  • Outstanding professionals with a university degree, preferably with a business or technical background, and at least 2-3 years working experience in a relevant field (e.g. wealth management / retail business, investment banking, asset management, technology / IT, risk / control functions).
  • Inquisitive minds with very strong analytical skills, a good understanding of financial markets, operational or technological aspects, as well as process flows within and between banks and their counterparts, and with the ability to challenge the status quo.
  • Independent staff with strong time management skills, who are able to prioritize and balance their own workload and work under minimal supervision.
  • Flexible individuals, able to learn quickly, and willing to handle various and changing topics and to keep up with financial industry or technological developments.
  • Committed team players, collaborating effectively within and across teams and willing to travel to other UBS locations in Europe for audit assignments.
  • Strong communicators with an excellent verbal and written command of English, as well as the ability to present complex facts in a succinct manner and to communicate with stakeholders at various levels (knowledge of an additional European language (French/German/Italian/Spanish) is an advantage).

Operations

In operations we take care of a range of activities which directly support the business decision-making process. Primarily we provide support to dealmakers to enable them to make prudent and confident decisions; they rely on our professional handling of systems, data, securities and corporate events to support their daily activities. Further, we reconcile accounts every day and then send the information back to the business so they can see how they are performing. We support account managers with reports which they use with their clients as a customer management tool. We also provide post-trade account administration and collateral management. All of these activities mean we have a crucial role to play in many of the bank’s business activities.

Our Know Your Customer (KYC) teams in Poland are responsible for reviewing client data in UBS systems and making sure that we know who our customers are in order to prevent money laundering. Client reviews are used as proof of our prevention measures to our regulators. Our analysts in KYC need to build knowledge about financial institutions and their structures in order, for instance, to understand who is the real owner of a company.

We are growing dynamically and are looking for enthusiastic people, the kind who know the difference between bonds, equities and swaps, who enjoy juggling data in MS Excel, Access and Visual Basic, and like to create macros and pivot tables.

Our daily working language is English; therefore, proficiency in this language is essential. Since we also deliver our services to other UBS locations (e.g. Switzerland) some of the roles require proficiency in German.

Within KYC we are looking for either graduates with an interest in financial institutions and financial markets, or people with anti-money laundering experience. All of our candidates need to have good English skills. Other languages are very welcome, above all German or French.

We are responsible for ensuring that the financial accounting and reporting is accurate and that related controls and business processes are appropriately set up. We work on process improvement across various areas related to financial accounting and reporting.
