Apologies in advance for the long post but any advice would be greatly appreciated!
A little about myself: graduated from university 2010. In the final year kidneys failed suddenly and I was started on dialysis. Didn’t perform as well as I should’ve and have seen been working in a banking role for an asset management bank in a back office role. I was always adamant to qualify as an accountant and recently started doing ACCA to compliment my accounting and finance degree and to work towards qualification.
However, my illness got progressively worse in the time I’ve been with my employer and progress was unlikely given I had many periods of sickness. Last summer I received a transplant and recovered fully. My career aspirations have changed and I would like to eventually work for the big 4 although cannot apply for a graduate programme. Applying at this moment would be useless as I have no stand out experience to apply as an experienced hire. I know there are many who work/worked within the big 4 and all advice would be greatly appreciated as to how I may be able to work myself towards an analyst/entry level position.
Thank you in advance.
