Role Description

UBS Talents Lab

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

This week was extremely helpful in understanding the different areas I could invest into. I would suggest that I would have liked to see the offices themselves as the conference room we stayed in could have been anywhere. However, i understand this may not be allowed confidentially wise as certain areas are restricted.


2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

I would say that I could feel valued in any other position at the firm however as an spring insight person we were still restricted from seeing anyone apart from the talks. However, everyone was more than willing to take the time to answer any possible questions we may have and offering time after.


3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

This was great. We had graduates with us at all activities to help guide us through and help with any questions that we had and took the time to answer. They also offered additional support at other times. I do not feel that we were not supported at any time.


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

I would say that the information I received was great and exactly what was needed and specifically tailored to UBS. I would not have found this information on my degree. However, I feel this was more of an informational week and that I have not created any other skills from this week.


The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

This was great. We knew exactly what we were doing at each moment and have had no spare time whatsoever (which is a good thing!) it was greatly organised and we were meeting knew people at every moment. I particularly liked the workshops as these gave more of an idea as to what the areas entail.


6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

Friendly and smiley. Everyone else on the course was great and I really didn’t feel that there was a competitive nature to it. Everyone that I spoke to was helpful. Again, I did feel a bit like a client stuck in one or two rooms and was unable to get a feel as to the working environment.


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

I think this was well thought of. I felt both Rowena and Alex took time to invest in me and make sure I was alright at all times


8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

I did not believe that this helped with understanding the day to say life of anyone living in the firm. I am a aware of the confidentiality barrier but I do feel it would really be a benefit if we could work shadow one person - even if only for one day!


9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

A huge emphasis was
Placed on the culture this week. Everyone that we spoke to mentioned it and it gave me a proper insight into what it would Entail working here. I really enjoy the culture and it seems a great place to work in regards to the culture and the tour we were given.


10. How valuable was the content of the day in helping you to decide on your future career path?

Despite receiving a wealth of information I still feel that I could have had more information or a better understanding with guest shadowing.
