The Role



The Role

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

There were many speakers from different areas of the firm. Although I didnt feel it was interactive enough due to the virtual nature.


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

The HR women who organised the Spring event were very friendly and virtually approachable. They helped to make UBS have a positive outlook to its employees.


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

We had been given a schedule and clear instructions on what to prepare for certain sessions.


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

The days were mainly 9-5 with a 2hour break for lunch.


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

We weren't given any responsibility as it was a spring insight week done virtually due to a virus.


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

Great to hear about the industry experts. My favourite were the Global Banking sessions and hearing about the divisions within this sector.


The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

The office was virtual and so the atmosphere was that I created in my room. I attempted to keep the feng shui calm and positive as this breeds extreme concentration.


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

The internship was decently organised considering it was meant to be run in the office if it was not for the situation regarding the covid 19 pandemic.


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

UBS did invest time and energy by dedicating enthusiastic HR personnel to take care of us. They also allowed us to freely ask questions in a virtually open environment to the other analysts at UBS.


10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • There were no perks with this Internship

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

The future employment prospects within UBS are hopefully looking positive as I aim to convert my spring internship into the summer for the global markets Sales and Trading position.



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

The internship was virtual and so the social scene was limited.

There was no cost of living and socialising in the area i interned in.

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

There were no opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work due to the pandemic.
