Share via:

Do you want to help our clients buy and sell equities? On our off cycle internship you’ll get exposure to both Sales & Trading to gain first-hand experience of working on a trading floor.

As an Advisory sale off cycle intern you’ll:

  • Understand how cash equities work, are bought and sold and what drives stock prices .
  • Learn equity valuation techniques (DCF , peer multiple analysis etc), delve into the relationship between macroeconomics and financial markets, become able to assess the impact of incoming news and generate trade ideas.
  • Help our senior sales to build idea pitches for major Pan European Asset managers, Pension funds and Hedge Funds.
  • Develop and present to the team your own investment ideas interacting with the UBS research department across the globe.
  • Assist the local team in organizing and executing analyst and corporate roadshows.
  • Support the Advisory sales team in all aspects of client relationship management and internal reporting.

Your team

You’ll be working in the Global Markets team, looking after professional investors like asset managers and fund managers.

You’ll give them advice and do everything that’s needed to buy and sell securities for them. From start to finish.

You’ll be able to draw on the strength of our platforms, products, services and people worldwide to give your clients whatever they need.

Your expertise

You need to be in the last two years of your degree and have, or be on track for, a 2:1 or the equivalent in your first undergraduate degree. It doesn’t matter what you’re studying. (Really, it doesn’t.) But we’d like to see evidence that you can:

– analyze a problem, take a view and come to a decision
– plan, organize and communicate well
– make things happen

– stick with a task
– work in a team
– come up with ideas

Perhaps you’ve organized a fundraising event or taken part in team sports? Or persevered and passed an exam in a subject you found challenging?

Think about how things you’ve achieved match the skills we’re after.

Your Program

On this internship, you’ll be a real part of the team, working with our experts and learning about the industry, our clients, our firm and a specific area of it.

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to develop new skills and make contacts. And if you impress us, we might invite you to join our Graduate Talent Program once you’ve graduated.

Our off-cycle internships typically last 3-6 months. Ideally we are looking for someone to start in Q1.
