The jump from audit to fdd is nice. The jump to fp&a is like that x 10. Keep an ear to the ground for opportunities and if you find a solid one at a growing company, definitely recommend taking it.

I’m in FDD now as an S3 and wish I would have jumped to FP&A already. Corp dev would be sweet as well, but aiming for more W/L/B. I think if you have the option of jumping directly to FP&A before FDD and your long term goals are more industry based, then do that.

If I leave as an s2 should I be looking at Senior financial analyst or manager?

SFA. A small private company may have inflated titles though similar to being a ‘controller’ at a tiny company you could be a ‘fp&a manager’ with no direct reports. Not a great role though in that case because what you want is to grow/learn skills. What you probably want is a SFA role at a growing company where a higher FP&A exec can take you under their wing and teach you, then you move up quickly as the company grows and you get up to speed on the new skillset/responsibilities as they are very different than anything you do now
