yeah that helps a lot. Its hard to know what baker tilly really look for, they dont seem to have a list of it, they seem to just want you to sell yourself. My mums brother in law is a chartered accountant but he used it to go into banking and apparently part of his job was recruiting people, but it wasnt HR, so he knows a lot about it. Im seeing him a christmas so Ill ask him too.
Something I also found out recently, my dads cousin is finance director of the FTSE 350 (I think) company Alexandra - makes the work uniforms for Shell and McDonalds! He’s only got a 2:2 in chemistry, trained with Touche Ross back in the 70s. Dont know when Fred Goodwin was there though.
Anyway, Alexandra arent doing too well coz the exchange rate has gone down.
