Are you looking to continue specialising in this interesting sector and work for a large and very well known Top 10 firm? Do you have first time passes in all exams to date? Are you looking to leave your current firm, transfer your training contract and finish your remaining ACA exams with a Top 10 firm based in Central London? Are you currently working for a medium or large size firm where you currently audit financial services companies, and looking to upgrade to an international Top 10 firm based in Central London?

You will work in a friendly and growing team, and you can expect to work on an interesting array of high profile financial services clients.
