Corp banking credit analyst vs Forensic advisory vs .....

I'm in a bit of a situation here. This is not for grad roles by the way, its for experienced.
I have an offer to undertake a corp banking credit analyst position at a middle sized bank but growing and seems to work on some biggish corp bank sized transactions at the top level. Now here is the kicker, the role is on a 1 month contract. The reason for this is that they are unsure about people of my background getting up to speed quick enough so want to trial it.

The other offer is a permanent offer at a pretty good advisory firm in their forensics, doing things like valuations, disputes, and other kinds of economic stuff I imagine.

So I am really wondering what I should do. I think I would like to have a go at corp banking, but then there is the 1 month thing. And how do I know if they are not playing me some way?

Any advice on the job you'd prefer and/or how I can play this

I would try to extend the deadline to accept on the advisory role and work at the corp bank until then. Have you given that any luck?

might be tought that, but thanks for the suggestion.
Do you think I should pay hardball with the bank. I think they are being a bit unfair, i have a fair bit of credit experience in an advisory capacity, plus I am a CFA. So its really annoying me. They need someone to start right away, and are concerned it will take them too long to get up to speed, so want the 1 month contract to see if its possible.
