A Great Day Out at UBS

Students from The Petchey Academy in Hackney had the chance to venture right into the heart of the City this Friday for a day out at the UBS offices on Liverpool Street. The day provided an opportunity for the students to see inside one of the country’s biggest investment banks, to learn about their work, and to show off their business skills to our group of UBS volunteers who kindly took time out of their busy schedule to spend a few hours with us!

The Careers Carousel
After listening to an interesting presentation which explained the basics of investment banking, the students set to work preparing questions to ask the UBS volunteers who came from various departments within the organisation. They certainly made the most of the hour they had to grill their interviewees on topics ranging from daily routine and work-related tasks to the roots of the financial crisis and their plans for the Christmas holidays!

The Business Challenge
It was then the turn of the Enabling Enterprise to introduce our festive enterprise challenge. The teams worked together well to produce their cards, coming up with all kinds of strategies in order to try and maximise the number of Enabling Enterprise dollars they would earn – ranging from producing well-decorated and humorous cards to writing messages inside the cards to try and ingratiate themselves with the Judging Panel!

A Well Presented Group
The presentations which followed were very entertaining, and our congratulations go to the winning team, K.E.D. Thank you to the team at UBS for making it such an enjoyable day!
