    I'm 22 and just about to finish my ICAEW qualification which I undertook through a school leaver program at a fairly small firm. I would like to specialise in tax and so will need to complete the ATT and CTA qualifications. I was just wondering what the chances of larger firms in London hiring me as a tax trainee would be as I have no degree? I was also wondering what exemptions I would get in regards to my ACA qualification?

    As you've completed the ACA, you shouldn't have a problem at all the big4 take on school leavers so there should be no real issue. I know whenyou do the ACA and CTA together you get some CTA exemptions but I'm not sure you still get them if you take them seperately.

    I take it you have completed the ACA rather than CFAB? If so, you shouldn't have a problem at all the big4 take on school leavers so there should be no real issue.

    Thanks for your reply!
    Yeah, I have completed ACA. Do you know what sort of salary I'd be getting, for example would I be getting the salary of a school leaver or the salary of someone who had completed their ACA qualification?

    You'd probably want to aim at the assistant manager level - so post-qualified. As there is a pretty high attrition rate post-qualification there tends to be room for good staff.
