I was seeking some perspective on an offer that I received. I have been offered an ACA trainee position for a top 20 firm, based in one of their satelite offices within London. The office is relatively small, and the types of clients i think will pretty much centre around small to medium, owner managed businesses. The role will initially involve me being a generalist at the start, with the opportunity to specialise as I progress.
I was wondering whether anyone could provide some information on the possible exit opportunities once qualified. Why this shouldn’t be the end all of an offer, however, it’s a consideration that any prospective employee should think about. Nevertheless:
In light of the information provided above, would I only be limited to working within practice once qualified?
If I do stand a chance to move to industry, what are my chances of moving to a blue chip organisation? a FTSE 100 firm? FTSE 250?
Would I stand any chance of moving to the big4?
Is ACA from top 20 firm, in their smallest office still marketable upon qualification? Does the ACA’s value diminish in this scenario?
Many thanks in advance,
