Prepare yourself for leading employers

UBS video interview

If you achieve a high score in the online tests, you may be invited to interview. This first interview will take place virtually, either via video or over the phone.

This will be the first opportunity for you to demonstrate your skills and interests more freely.

The interview will be competency-based, focusing on your CV and your educational and work experience. Ensure you are prepared to back up all your examples of your skills and competencies with clear evidence – practising using the STAR method is a good way to prepare for your interview.

Read through the job description or requirements for the programme, making note of how you can illustrate you meet these criteria, alongside how you possess key competencies such as strong teamwork, innovation, leadership and resilience.

UBS assessment centre

The UBS assessment centre commonly comprises two exercises. The UBS recruitment team will be observing and assessing candidates based upon their performance throughout.

The first of these will be a group exercise. You will be set a task to complete and assessed on your ability to communicate and work well as part of a team. It is important to approach the task with confidence and ensure you have a presence within the group, offering ideas and asking insightful or pertinent questions.

If you find these observed tasks particularly nerve-wracking or have a quieter personality, do not panic. It is not the loudest voices that impress the most in group tasks, but individuals who are able to work well as a team and bring out the best in their colleagues.

Aim to show consideration as well as creativity and innovation in your approach. Display that you understand team dynamics and have empathy for others, encouraging them to share their own ideas. Be balanced, listening carefully as well as offering your own input.

The second task will be a presentation. The UBS recruitment team will assess your ability to present information professionally, engagingly and succinctly.

Ensure you can match your body language and tone to the task in hand and be prepared to answer questions on the content of your presentation.

The assessment centre day will also feature a final interview.

To impress, you will need to display a level of knowledge of the area you want to go into and of UBS’s history and future direction..

Ensure you are confident in your motivations for wanting to secure the role with UBS. If you can match your enthusiasm with sector knowledge and evidenced skills, you will stand a good chance of securing a position at the company.

    The time was not bad at all, it was doable but the time given is short. the scenarios need analyses

    The scenarios were long for the time given to them as they need analyses and calculation before answering them, However i believe the test was fair

  • Singapore

    A good test. It required comprehension of questions before completing simple calculations. Definitely requires practice.

  • Switzerland

    October 28, 2022

    read questions carefully!

    it was a very good test, I didn't like that the graphs were "interactive" (as in it gives me the precise number when I go there with my cursor), because this distracted me from basically just reading the numbers from the graph.

  • United Kingdom

    October 09, 2022

    Easy arithmetic, need to manage time

    If this is similar to the actual numerical assesment, then contentwise it's child's play though you need to be quick

  • Italy

    September 06, 2022

    It is Time Constraining

    Time management is key, there is no place whatsoever to make a mistake and go over an exercise. you must be sure of each step you take throughout the examination

  • Greece

    June 23, 2022

    Experience with Finance Figures

    Liked the many questions in the same context Liked that it wanted approximate results Disliked that it sometimes missed the context of the graphs

  • Switzerland

    June 06, 2022

    To manage the time

    The questions are actually not very difficult; the most important thing is to try to manage our time as much as possible to answer all the questions.

  • Switzerland

    April 19, 2022


    Some graphs are very inconvenient because you can't see both the graph and the question at the same time

  • United States of America

    April 16, 2022

    How to read these graphs

    I wish the explanations for the questions had explanations for how assumptions implicit in reading the graphs (what currency the graphs were based on, etc)

  • Poland

    March 10, 2022

    Need to prepare for the format

    It was challenging, I liked it, definitely not difficult, but you need to practice for the type of questions.
