The Role



The Role

Role Description

Two rotations one in a specialist area and another in a generalist.

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

I enjoyed getting out of bed every single day of my internship!


2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

You were treated extremely well by the colleagues as a real added member of the team instantly. Lots of shout outs at global meetings etc.


3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

There was always support and training whenever you asked and prior knowledge was NEVER expected


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

It was the perfect balance of being busy and being able to manage your workload


5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

I was given responsibility of communicating with some of the most senior members of the bank's questions and involved in completing those tasks fully.


6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

Everything that I learnt can be applied to my general work life in the future


The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

certain areas of the office environment were much quieter than others which showed the importance of choosing the right area to complete rotations and permanent positions


8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

All of it was pre organised with extreme clarity and a million diary requests on day one. Fantastic.


9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

Nothing you requested was ever too much. Could go and look at any other area of the bank just for interest.


10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Sports and Social Club
  • Company Parties/Events

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

Got a job offer with them and a temporary work until I go travelling.



12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

It took a while for everyone to get comfortable with each other and then after that lots of people met up all the time and helped each other show various areas of the bank.


13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

Lunch was quite expensive but there were a lot of options to choose from


14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

All the interns went out a lot and all were within a short walk of the office


15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

There were options to get involved in any activities that were offered to full time UBS staff, but the time there is so short it can be hard to get involved.
