Hi I’m considering a PwC flying start degree and a JPM Degree Apprenticeship. I understand after concluding JPM it is most likely I will be working in middle office.
My q is in terms of salary, career progression and benefits, which one fares better and which you’d go for/why?

What is the starting salary with JPM?
I think 21k per year of apprenticeship, rising to 40k after completion. My concern is what about after that??

Hopefully someone with very specific knowledge will be able to advise. I guess it would normally depend on you plus a bit of luck.

I think the real decision is whether you want to go to university. If you do - and there are lots of reasons to do so such as long holidays - you will be stuck with 9% additional tax for a long time and a lower income in the short term. Go to JPM and you get experience, no student loans and a degree. I doubt one has some amazing benefit over another in the long term so far as average incomes go.

dont know much about jpm, but for accounting:
starting salary is around 17-19k, 20-23k if in london.
not going to uni wont hinder you at all in accounting
rises every year and when you qualify you will be on around 40-45k starting salary after 4-5 years depending on how long it takes. after that you are essentially open to pretty much any accounting role you could think of

London salaries are higher (by and large) than you have noted.

I mean at the qualified level (so 4-5 years after starting). Jobs in industry struggle to attract candidates for under £50k - over £55k has been more common in the last couple of years. Of course this changes depending on the economy.

Plus - the OP isn't looking at an apprenticeship for accountancy. They are looking at the degree course with industrial placements for 3 years. I'm not sure what the starting salary is for those graduates. I think the PWC grad trainee rate in London was £28k a couple of years ago - might have gone up now - and flying start graduates might go in a level higher.

Cheers guys, from what I’ve researched pay progression is pretty secure as a CA, my concern is how does it measure relative to JPM M.O. prospects - and I appreciate it’s an unfamiliar realm. Any IB experts in the house??
