PWC or Private!?!?


Hi guys I have an interview with Pwc for a client services administrator role and I have a couple of questions which I hope someone may be able to help me with, I will try to keep this short.

I aim to become a Chartered Accountant and have 4 exams left of my ACCA qualification.

I have secured a role as a finance assistant within a large private firm and I am due to start soon.
I also have an interview with PWC as a client services administrator and am somewhat stuck as to what path to take.

If I was successful in my interview with PWC what kind of progression can I expect from this role?

Should I go with PWC or pursue my role with the private firm and apply at one of the big 4 later down my career?

I hope you can help me.


Client service administrator is a very junior role and not actually related to accounting so I would suggest taking the other one .



Yes thank you for your answer, I did think this but would the possibility of progressing into a higher position within PWC not compensate for the time spent in a lesser role? Or am I being too optimistic about the progression opportunities?


No client admin will be on a completely different route. It is a support function so you won’t be able to progress to practice from there.


Thank you very much for your advice :slight_smile:
