UBS provides financial advice and solutions to private, institutional and corporate clients worldwide. With more than 70,000 employees, they have a presence in all major financial centers in more than 50 countries. They offer a collaborative, international and diverse working environment that rewards passion, commitment and success.
Their UK School Leaver Apprenticeships are an important entry-level pipeline for UBS. The programs provide apprentices with the skills and experiences required to transition from school to the workplace while working towards recognised qualifications. Apprentices are full-time employees who will have a mixture of on-the-desk duties, learning and development. If you want your students to have a great introduction to the world of work with one of the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers, this is the program for them!
UBS offer both degree and advanced apprenticeships in lots of business areas so your students can choose the program that suits them best!
Degree apprenticeships are carried out in partnership with the University of Exeter, a distinguished member of the UK’s Russell Group universities. Apprentices get a set amount of working hours dedicated to an element of learning with full access to the university’s academic resources.
Apprentices can gain a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Applied Finance or a Digital & Technology Solutions Degree. These are great choices for students new to the financial services industry. They will also gain a number of recognised qualifications throughout both programs and be awarded their degree at the end of their fourth year.
The advanced apprenticeships typically range from 15-18 months and will enable your students to gain industry-recognised qualifications to start their career. Completion of the advanced apprenticeship can also lead to a relevant higher apprenticeship and further qualifications. They will be registered as a learner with a UBS training partner and have access to training, guidance and support.
UBS offers a collaborative, international and diverse working environment that rewards passion, commitment and success.
