Why Choose Professional Cadetships?

For Year 12 Students

Our cadetship programs are open to current Year 12 students only. They enable you to combine study at the university of your choice with paid work at leading companies.

"A Business Cadetship offers the chance to experience the financial services industry hands-on while providing a unique opportunity to work alongside talented and experienced professionals. Over the course of my cadetship, I spent time in a number of different roles at UBS while simultaneously completing a Bachelor of Applied Finance at Macquarie University. My four-year cadetship provided me with otherwise unavailable opportunities and resulted in my securing a full-time position on the Equity Sales desk at UBS."
Dean Fremder, former cadet at UBS

For Participating Companies

Our programs allow you to secure young people who have the right fit for your organisation, providing a talent pipeline for your graduate hiring.

"UBS is committed to nurturing future talent in Australia by providing opportunities for young people to develop their knowledge and skills.

For the past nine years, UBS has partnered with Professional Cadetships Australia (PCA) to identify and select highly-motivated school leavers who have an aptitude for financial services. UBS employs cadets across the business, including front office cadet placement in Asset Management and Equities.

PCA's reach within schools, combined with their knowledge of UBS' business and corporate culture, has enabled us to develop a strong cadet program within the business.

The cadetship program provides a one of a kind experience for students wanting a career in finance while also providing exceptional resources for UBS during the cadetship and a pipeline of potential talent for the future."
