Congratulations on becoming ACA qualified...

I have qualified from a medium tier practice...what are my options?
Top 10
Gain some experience within one of the Top 10 practices. It will allow you to gain exposure to PLC clients, both nationally and internationally. It will allow you to gain experience in different areas, helping you to identify an area of specialisation for a later date in your career. You are more likely to gain experience of managing larger and different teams, eg. Audit man-management is very different to running a finance team.

Industry
If you ultimately want to move into industry, we would still recommend gaining some experience within one of the larger practices first. By getting more exposure, this can put you in a stronger position to move into a high calibre industry role, particularly in the larger blue chip companies. It will also allow you to develop a broader skill set, especially in Business Advisory, which could open up doors to Financial & Management Accountant opportunities and Financial Controller/Finance Manager positions in smaller companies.
