Careers Advice from our Part Qualified & Transactional Finance Specialist

As a Part Qualified accountant it’s important that, in combination with passing exams at a suitable pace and progressing with your qualifications, your career is going in the right direction. It is a great opportunity as you move through the stages of your qualification to take stock and evaluate the direction you wish to take your career and ensure you keep your trajectory in focus.

It is useful to have a network that can provide advice and insight into your situation and assess your progress along the way. A recruiter specialising at your level will be able to highlight the skills or experience you should be looking to gain in order to progress your career, advise on what the job market is like, what opportunities are available to you and how to be successful in finding the right position. Sometimes our best advice to you will be how you can maximise opportunities with your current firm – the best option may be to progress internally at your current company.

At Investigo we have over 20 consultants that specialise in Part-Qualified and Transactional Finance Roles based in our London, Reading, Guildford, Milton Keynes and St Albans offices. We understand the challenges that you face from graduation or embarking on your first role in finance through to completion of exams and fully qualifying. Across London and our Regional offices we are currently working on numerous roles, many of which are with leading Blue Chip, FTSE Listed or fast growing brands.

I joined Investigo over a year ago to head up the Part-Qualified and Transactional London team having built up 9 years’ experience working in 2 leading finance recruitment agencies. One of the key selling points for me was the quality and experience of the people working in this business. In my team of 7 consultants there is over 40 years of experience operating at this level. Each consultant is proud of the strength of the long term relationships they have built, seeing every new connection and conversation as an opportunity to help people progress in their careers. They are quite simply the most talented and experienced bunch I have worked with!

Working with our team and investing time in creating a focused career plan, that is effectively managed and ensures you are kept on path to achieving your goals by gaining the relevant skills and experience needed.
