Hi there, I left a large accounting firm part way through my training contract as I was so bored with the work, went to a new job as a management trainee in banking. I found that the people who did the most interesting work were in the merchant banking arm and when I asked them what their background was and how they had got there, they told me they were both chartered accountants. I realised my mistake, left the bank and went back to my old firm to finish off the rest of my contract which had remained "dormant" at the ICAEW since I had left. I have never regretted it. I didn't go into banking after qualifying, I specialised in tax but having the qualification gave me lots of choice. I suggest you rethink your decision and go back.
