Role Description

Insight week (spring insight)

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

The Talents Lab (spring week) held by UBS was thoroughly enjoyable and provided a very detailed look into the investment bank.


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

Throughout the week we were congratulated on securing a place on the programme and really made felt wanted. Everyone was very happy to meet and speak with us and overall everyone I met was extremely friendly.


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

Throughout the programme we were given great insight into the different divisions within the bank. All questions asked were answered and additional support was also given if struggling within certain workshops/case studies.


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

The many workshops held in the week really helped build my skill set. I remember taking part in an M&A case study that really reinforced my technical abilities and gave me a flavour on how to perform evaluations of companies.


The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

The event was very well made. A timetable was provided on the very first day entailing all the events that the programme will consist of.


6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

The atmosphere was great. During speeches and presentations it was quiet to help swallow all the information and make sense of it but also hectic during the different workshops, specially the trading game.


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

All questions asked were answered.


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?

The proamme made a good job of highlighting the different roles people have within the bank. A more firm understanding would have been attained by perhaps shadowing certain staff.


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

The culture of UBS was talked about everywhere and a good understanding of the 3 keys UBS works on was gathered.


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

The programme helped answer a lot of questions I had before I came on.


Other Information

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

There was a networking event held on the last day. It would have been better if perhaps more staff came along but overall very nice to meet everyone and speak to people about their roles and background.


13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?


14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?


15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

An excellent opportunity to gain strong insight into investment banking and its various divisions.
