Your role
Been out of the workforce for two or more years and ready to come back? Already built a career in financial services (or in a transferable role) and want to take the next step on your career path?

We recognize the added value that experienced talent brings into our workplace. And we also know that it's not always easy to find the right work opportunity after a career break. That's where UBS Career Comeback comes in – to help make the transition back to work a success.

Are you naturally curious and ambitious? Do you have sharp analytic skills? We're looking for someone like that who can:

This will include client due diligence visits for onsite evaluations.
• hold delegated personal authority (within established risk-based limits) to approve new positions or to make recommendations to higher authority levels within Credit. The candidate will be expected to interact with the business units in relation to transactions to ensure the risk fit UBS' ultimate appetite in the sector.
• evaluate transactional risks associated with OTC derivatives, securities financing, exchange traded derivatives, banking products and structured transactions
• prepare, as well as review and approve, written counterparty annual reviews/transactional credit proposals drawing conclusions relating to credit assessment, risk appetite, exposure drivers and business prospects
• lead trading documentation negotiation
