At Bright Network we have thousands and thousands of members who vary from first years looking to dip their toe in the corporate world, to more experienced high-fliers with letters after their name who don't want to start at the bottom. Your needs are all very different but luckily there's a fantastic organisation who can cater to every need.
UBS are a huge global bank and they are looking for new talent to join them, whether it be for a month-long taster on their brand new Emerging Talent Programme for those graduating in 2016, to a 12 month Industrial Placement or a fully-fledged graduate programme. Nor is it a company which only needs someone narrowly focused on Equities, Trading or Assets, there's much more as you shall see.
Of course when you are applying to any of these opportunities it is important to show you know what the roles are, and why UBS is unique.
For starters, UBS makes it super easy for you to prepare, with a handy website just for you to research. You don't have to mine through vague corporate speak, they give you the facts straight up.
Furthermore UBS attended the 2013 Bright Investment Banking Network in September which is proof of their commitment to graduate training, you're not just on the bottom rung of a gleaming tower. They are set up for an open minded working culture with respect and mutual support. Our graduates often cite the level of support they receive in their first job as the most important thing they look for in a job specification. The right training and collaboration can mean the difference between months of uncertainty and years of a fulfilling career.
What is often described as the icing on the cake, but I think is more important and integral, think the chocolate powder in the cake mix, is the fact that you will be working with some of the best talent the world has to offer. If you are a Bright Member you are already among the elite and you deserve to be in a working environment with other high fliers. UBS gives you that opportunity to learn from the best and provides a structure for you to always be challenged and pushed.
So, if you are interested in financial opportunities, client relationships, technology, sales, real estate and HR, UBS is the place to be.
