    I've recently graduated with a First in Economics and intend on pursuing accounting, but have no relevant experience. Due to the time of the year, It's too late to apply for 2016 schemes so my plan was initially get an Accounts Assistant job for a few months and then apply for schemes starting in Summer/Autumn 2017 with the new experience I would have gained. I have a few questions though:

    If I get a job as an Accounts Assistant at a small firm and they provide study support, could I apply for grad schemes and leave within 12 months or would I be contracted to stay with them until I finish my studies and another few years after?

    Also, would this even make me more attractive for grad schemes or would it be better to just stick with them?

    Lastly, the location of one the agency's client is a 1 and a half - 2 hour commute one way, would this be too long to juggle ACCA/CIMA exams at the same time

    Thanks.
