Foreign Exchange, Rates and Credit Level 3 Apprenticeship
Did you know you don’t have to complete an internship to work in financial services? UBS's Investment Bank Apprenticeship program provides ambitious and talented individuals with an alternative route to a career in financial services. You'll earn a salary working in the exciting and fast-paced environment of investment banking, whilst completing training for a recognized qualification offering a fee-free on-the-job education alternative to the traditional university route.
Our apprentices will assist the teams in day-to-day operational running of the desk, which could include a range of tasks from trade processing to trade allocation, or offering guidance when managing client relationships, seeing that there is consistency of messaging and content delivery to clients across FRC.
There is also an opportunity to learn more about the financial markets and the wider FRC business through regular business teach-ins, rotation schemes and through the internal network you will develop.
You'll be joining a diverse dynamic team of individuals who spend their day speaking to clients and internal teams, making sure that UBS is facilitating the clients' business in accordance with their wishes, as well as meeting all internal business requirements. The client base you would cover ranges from hedge funds and asset managers to insurance companies and banks, as well as pension funds and global family offices, and many more across FX, Rates and Credit.
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.
For the first 18 months of your apprenticeship you’ll study towards your Level 3 Investment Operations Certificate (IOC). You’ll then have the opportunity to progress onto various different high level apprenticeship schemes, where you have the potential to gain the equivalent of a bachelor’s undergraduate degree. One option could be the Level 6 Financial Services apprenticeship – which includes the CFA level 1, an industry recognised qualification worldwide.
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, you will have the opportunity to work towards a junior sales person or client service relationship manager.
How you will be supported…
This is an opportunity to work alongside some of the best people in the financial services industry with high visibility towards the bank’s senior management. You’ll be supported by several members of the sales team together with support from the program, your line manager, team, mentor and HR. Plus, there are some excellent additional training programmes, through training partners Skills Company, Fitch Learning and the UBS Business University.
