    Ideally I would like to go into a Corporate Finance role however i understand now that it is a bit late and many companies have finished recruiting/are at the latter stages of recruiting graduates for roles. As i have studied Accounting and Finance would completing a CA contract and then moving into Corp Finance be a feasible route? or is it probably better until the next cycle of graduate hires start. (i am currently in my final year at university)

    Depends how committed you are. The ACA is a huge undertaking and will be 3 years of stress, but at the end of it your options are really open. ACA to corp fi is a pretty standard route a lot of people take.

    There will be those who go into finance, those who go into industry, and those (the really brave ones) who stick out out and try to make partner.
