Hi,With the current covid situation, I was told that my audit graduate role at Mazars in september will still occur but my wage will be cut by 10% (from 23k to 21k). I felt 23k was respectable and whilst 21k will be easy for me to live off, I don't know if it is worth living off that for 3 years. Does anyone have any opinions on how the salary will progress and if after passing the ACA my salary will be any betterThanks!

at mazars you qualify around 35-40 depending on office, not sure how much it increases each year though

So does this mean once I have passed the ACA after 3 years i will 'jump' to that salary or will it be progressive from your knowledge

progressive, it wont be 21 for 3 years, more like 21 to 26 to 30 each year and then to 35 when you qualify. i dont know the exact figures for mazars but it will be that kind of pattern.

not sure tbh, id imagine that you would still qualify on the same salary because if not you can just dip and go to another firm once u have ACA. and since you trained there they are gonna want to keep you if they can.

it really depends on how mazars does over the next few years, mid tier firms are suffering quite a bit because they audit some small businesses which are going bust, that being said, mazars does have some big clients so you should be alright.

Thanks so much for your help, you've put my mind at ease a little bit !
