You’re a senior. How many years overdue could it be? If you knew you wanted to leave as staff what made you stick around longer? Genuinely curious. Congrats!

Write up a letter to submit then before sending sit with your managers and partners to let them know. That way the letter helps you to sort out your wording and get your story line in order. Also speak to HR

Just be confident when you tell managers or partners that your leaving. Don’t let anyone persuade you to stay or feel guilty for leaving. Be confident in your decision to leave and get excited for the next chapter of your career.

Congratulations to new beginnings!

Make sure that your background check clears before you give notice to your current firm - you can even tell HR of the new company that you would feel comfortable notifying your current employer once all checks clear, so that they will work fast to ensure they can secure you by the originally planned start date. Beyond that, all the other advice in this thread will take you the rest of the way!

So coming up to my 3 years at UK KPMG Audit, and I got an offer from a food delivery tech company (think Ubereats, Deliveroo, Doordash etc) for a performance analyst type role which monitors/reports metrics for the Operations.

I'm interested in tech and thought this was a possible to foot in the door for future financial roles in tech.

Was wondering if anyone has thoughts on such roles or...is it a dead end approach.

Switched to industry from audit about 2 months ago and it’s been worse than expected.
