I want to do the higher apprenticeship scheme with PWC at the Channel Islands to gain my ACA, but they only offer this in tax or assurance. I was wondering if, once qualified, I could move service line to corporate finance or consulting in pwc or one of the other big 4. If this is possible what position would you join the division e.g associate, senior associate?

Yes this is common, a lot of people move internally to another service line once they qualify. I have every intention of doing the same.

You'd be joining at the same level as you left off at usually (or at least with your post qualified salary uplift- thats the important bit). I've only heard that if you go into tax that you might start off a bit lower as there is more specialist knowledge required, however you still retain your salary.

I am.well aware of the higher apprentice program at PwC. If you want to switch service lines after you qualify via exams I'd recommend to join the Assurance route if tax is not for you. If you go into tax then you can still switch service lines but only to other tax service lines I.e. corporate, private client, expat etc. Assurance gives you much broader options. Also, if you go into tax you will study a tax specific qualification I.e. ATT and then CTA. For Assurance you will do most likely do ACA. Hope that helps.

I've applied and got an offer for Tax, but Indirect Tax, so I'm doing the CFAB and then ACA instead of the ATT & CTA. Would this then give me broader options too? This is because I realised I want to be in an advisory role and most likely won't be allowed to switch until maybe full ACA qualification.
