You don’t have to have completed an internship to work at a bank. Take a look at the UBS' Wealth Management Apprenticeship program, which provides ambitious and talented individuals with an alternative route to a career in financial services. You'll earn a full time salary working in the exciting and fast-paced environment of wealth management whilst completing training for a recognized qualification offering a fee-free on-the-job education alternative to the traditional University route.
Are you a great innovator? Do you know how to solve problems and increase efficiencies? We’re looking for someone like that who is:
• Driven and willing to take on new challenges
• Problem Solver
• Good attention to detail
• Communication Skills
• Client orientated
• Team player
You'll be working within Wealth Management. Our apprentices help private bankers and their assistants deliver excellent service to clients. You will be responsible for ensuring that important admin and client-related processes are completed quickly and accurately. You will help maintain client relations and support great customer service, working closely with the Private Banking client teams.
You need to have completed you’re a-levels or equivalent by September 2019 and achieved 104 UCAS Points along with a level 5/6 in English Language and Maths GCSE. 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

work in a team
come up with ideas
