I am currently looking for an so-called exit opportunities from BIG4. I really hope you could possibly give me a couple of thoughts upon my situation.
I am 21(this fall 22), Russian, got my bachelor degree year ago in TOP-5 Russian university(financial faculty) and now i am 1 (of 2) years from getting masters degree.
Have been working at different part-time jobs while obtaining bachelor degree and then in October 2013 i started to work for one of Big4 companies in Audit, department Financial Services Industry (Bank Audit).
I am getting really bored with audit and this job is starting to kill all my thought process (e.g. i just know something should be done this way and i check that client's paperwork is in line with it, but if you ask me why this is the way it should be done i may be stuck with your question). Yeah, of course i may think a little more while performing various tests about what am i doing and why am i doing it this way, but this is quite time-consuming which will get me into trouble by not meeting deadlines.
Next year i plan to move to UK(i will have work permit) with my family so i will have to change my occupation anyway. I am not sure if i want to continue my career in Audit i think that i may work there till i move and then start searching for a job in UK. However this could be quite a hard task. Should i try to move within my company to UK office? Should i stay in Audit? I am really interested in Investment Banking Department (that is just a thought for now), maybe i should try to transfer to Valuation department in my company's office in UK?
