Finance and Accountancy Careers Content Blocks
I app considering a career as a financial analyst and am struggling to find out anything about it. Are there any companies that offer finance analyst graduate roles or a graduate program that involves working with responsibilities similar to a finance analyst.
I've just had a look and I made a mistake. I would like to do something where I prepare budgets and understand the financial position of a company. From there I would like to advise companies. I wanted to know whether there are any companies or accountency firms that offer graduate programs similar to this.

He wants into a graduate scheme in a major accounting/advisory consulting firm. It is way more competitive than you might think. What are the odd for medicine? 1:4 against someone with identical education and experience as you?
He is talking about grad schemes in an accounting firm or a large/ largish company. I've done on of these and recruited for them also. These are not as tough to get into as consultancy. I'd suggest that someone with the grades (and subjects) to get into medicine would pretty certainly get such as position or a general entry line role which would let them progress.
