I am quite lucky to have been offered a graduate position at a number of companies, my top two are at Deloitte and Aviva Investors.
Deloitte: Graduate Business Tax Advisory in London. CTA and ACA qualifications in the 3 year programme.
Aviva Investors: First year in London working in the CEO’s office, second year is a placement abroad. No professional exams. 2 year programme.
I’m really struggling to pick between the two. Aviva sounds great because of the senior exposure and international placement in emerging economies such as Singapore and Hong Kong. Deloitte is Deloitte, I’m not sure what the career progression in terms of salary and future prospects is (I don’t see myself working in Tax for longer than the 3 year graduate programme).
If any of you guys can give suggestions about what to pick, or what factors to consider in the long-run, I’d be grateful!
