Are there potential independence issues with applying for a position with an advisory client that I am actively working on an engagement with? It is for a different group at the client that the client’s resourcing office reached out to me about.

I don’t think independence applies the same way to us...I know people who went directly to work for client while they are still on project with said client...

Did you sign an independence confirmation/have to sign?

I didn’t have an independent confirmation that I needed to sign

Does independence even apply to advisory?

We usually sign our independence things near the end of the engagement. Also, you might need to report the offer or reach out from the client to your partner, even if you don't take it.

A bunch of Independence violations come from this. Your supposed to tell the engagement partner about it. Of course no one is gonna have that conversation though.
