Your role

Do you want to help our business get the most out of our technology? We are looking for talented individuals to help us within application development. Depending on the team you will join and your interest, you could: 

- support with tasks in the area of quality control and project management
- work on everything from applications that provide new and innovative services to our clients to proprietary-trading strategies designed by our quant teams and traders
- enhance production monitoring, issue tracking and problem resolution
- assist with system specification and design, support and maintenance

Your team

You’ll work within Technology, helping to source, develop, implement, maintain and support world-class technology solutions. You'll develop communication and analytical skills while working in an energetic and highly motivated team.

Our Support:

Full training and support will be provided by our expert training and assessment staff at Firebrand. There will be high quality classroom training with online learning, coaching and on-the-job experience to develop real world skills. 

From day one you’ll be in a permanent role at UBS as a full-time employee, receiving support from your line manager, team, mentor and HR. 

You’ll receive the Software Development Technician Level 3 Apprenticeship qualification either in the Java track or the C# track.

Your expertise

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 
- 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

For the first 18 months of your apprenticeship you will be studying towards your Software Development Technician Level 3 Apprenticeship qualification. You will then have the opportunity to progress onto various different high level apprenticeship schemes, where you have the potential to gain the equivalent to a bachelors undergraduate degree.

What you could go on to do…

Your career development and professional qualifications don’t stop after the Apprenticeship. Focused and determined individuals will be able to attain further qualifications equivalent to a degree, and when your training is complete.

Further specialise and become a technical expert in your area:

- Expand your Group Technology knowledge by moving across to a different service line, or department 
- On completion there is the opportunity to progress onto higher level apprenticeship programs.

How you will be supported…

You will be supported on the program, by your line manager, team, mentor and HR. 

Who we are looking for…

- an interest in working within a global financial corporation
- a desire to develop a career in technology 
- an interest in coding and IT applications 
- a proactive personality, willing to engage in a broad range of activities 

But we’d like to also see evidence that you can: 

- plan, organize and communicate well
- stick with a task 
- work in a team 
- develop ideas 
- analyse a problem, take a view and come to a decision 
- make things happen
