I’m about to head back for my 4th year at uni doing french and spanish. Ive done a lot of work exp on my year abroad and dare i say without wanting to boast but i have a half decent cv (property valuation in france, insurance in spain and accountancy in UK). I’m keen to get an ACA qualification and did a stint with PwC in their tax dept and have a final interview soon for a grad tax role. But I also want to be able to use my languages in my career. Anyway it would be great to hear your opinions on some queries:
- Is a grad tax route well thought of at PwC or any of the big 4 - compared with audit/CF? i do know i can do the ACA there rather than the tax exams.
- does anyone know what particular areas of Tax is there most exposure to foreign speaking clients that would interest me (i.e. perhaps Expat tax dept)
- would it be best to complete the ACA (if possible!) and then move sideways into sthg like asset management/IB/HF after qualifying?
- as i do two languages what other careers are viable options? is AM a possibility given my valuation experience?
Any advice warmly welcomed, thanks in advance.
