I was looking at the school leaver opportunities and questions and I have realised that I have not come across anyone that has asked about the financial advisory (corporate finance) sector. So I was wondering if it is available for school leavers to join the department?

Which office and service line have you applied to for this year? i'm afraid we do not have any vacancies in Financial advisory for this years intake.

It was through school leavers so it wasn't through a service line, I have to pick my service line but I was going to choose Financial Advisory or Finance consulting

Hi Amz, what are your options on the service line questionnaire?

16/07/2015
Amz K.

Nope only corporate Finance and Consulting.

I have not had a questionnaire yet on service line, I completed my online reasoning tests and passed and waiting for further emails to what is next

No problem - well done on passing both tests :) next steps, you will receive a service line questionnaire which describes each of the available service lines and what qualification you will study towards, you can then select the one you feel best matches your interests and skills.

No you'll be fine. The interviews are fairly relaxed, just be yourself and I'm sure you'll do great :)

Yeah, just remember: the interviewers aren't trying to catch you out. They just want to know about you, so be yourself and you'll be fine!

Probably Audit :)
