The Role

Role Description

Cash and Collateral Management - was involved with placing UBS's Treasury amounts with different brokers. Dealt with interest claims and also resolving Nostro / larger account breaks, and finally minor involvement with segregation of client money.

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

It was OK - there's only so much you can learn in 8 weeks, but there were chances to go and explore other areas and see how an investment bank works.

Very welcoming and happy to help out with any issues.

8/10

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

Manager seemed to be a hands off person - there was a person who had joined the team six months earlier who seemed to manage me more.

3/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Not a great deal going on - naturally only so much you can teach someone and expect them to do in 8 weeks.

3/10

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

Reasonable amount - however always someone checking your work for errors.

4/10

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

Interesting to put the finance I had learnt about into practice in further university modules.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Quite lively in terms of going out for drinks / lunchtime events - fairly lighthearted in places.

7/10

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

There was a distinct lack of further opportunities to stay with the firm, sadly - the issues that UBS had passed on to the whole programme.

3/10

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

There were three days of initial training - I felt there could have been a lot more with a lot more of interest / usefulness available.

3/10

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Company Parties/Events
2/10

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

Unfortunately UBS only employed 2 out of the 12 interns they had. I appreciate it's difficult to separate us when we have a lot of difference in roles but this was disappointing.

1/10

Social

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

Yes - but I would note this was predominantly self-organised, very few large events / evening drinks put on by the company.

8/10

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

Not too bad - although being in London wasn't the cheapest!

6/10

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

It was OK - lots of pubs / bars which were visited on occasion.

8/10

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

Not to a great extent - again these were predominantly self-organised.
