If you want to switch within the company, you can speak with a transition coach through mobility connections. It’s confidential and they can set up meetings with contacts in the area of interest.

It should be right on the front page in the list of shortcuts, at least it is on the US portal. I’m not sure where you’re based. Or just search ‘career mobility’ on the website.

I have just completed my first of 12 CIMA exams and I can’t seem to motivate myself to study at the expense of my side hustle when I don’t see myself in Consulting long term. I know I will gain some valuable lessons from CIMA for future ventures but it is a 3 year qualification alongside a demanding job with minimal downtime. Should I try and qualify or focus on saving money and my side hustles? Also, do I need to qualify to work as a consultant in Big 4 or can I opt not to sit exams?
