Corporate Finance Executive
6 years ago a recently qualified accountant was at a career crossroads. He’d built up some great experience in Audit and Accounts prep, and was highly sought after by several firms.
On researching career choices he was fascinated by the world of M&A and Corporate Finance.
He applied and approached various firms, and received offers from Big4 as well as other independent accounting firms. Some offered Corporate Finance roles, others offered roles in other service lines like Audit with a view to moving into CF.
He spoke to a few of his network who worked for similar firms. While they were positive (in the main!) about the firms, some of the common frustrations didn’t sit well with him – there was sometimes politic, bureaucracy and red tape. This meant he’d get his wings clipped from a developmental point of view, and not progress as quickly as he’d like.
He wanted a more entrepreneurial environment, One where he can get stuck in the early months in all aspects of Corporate Finance (from the research, IMS through to meetings, client development and networking) and really push himself.
Most of his other offers were for more money than the offer he got from the Corporate Finance Advisory firm. Yet he still took it.
Fast forward 5 years – he’s exceeded all expectations. 3 promotions in that time. Now a Director and shareholder.
Fast forward 5 years from now and you can become a well established, rounded and successful Corporate Finance professionals in Yorkshire. And be well ahead of many in a similar peer group
