    I will be interning in audit at a Big 4 in London this summer. However, in the time since my application, I've decided I'd much rather work in Financial Advisory (at the big 4 firm).

    Given I do well on the internship, how likely is it that I can be put straight onto a graduate role in FA? I imagine I'd need to do an interview or something of course, I'm just worried they will make me apply from square one along with every other applicant.

    I'm at a well regarded university studying economics and fulfill the basic entry requirements for all roles at the big 4...

    Cheers for any help!

    I'm also in the same position.
    Would it be better to try and get the graduate FA role straight after the audit internship, or is it easier to do the ACA with the firm and then try and transfer to FA?

    As I have talked to many ppl from ey, they have tendancy to offer FA positions for ppl with a 2-3 yrs audit experience. But they still offer places for ppl without an audit background. So what I think is that it is much more easier to transfer.
