Is it wise to go in-house this early?

Will I damage future career prospects by going in-house too soon?

I qualified this September at a City firm, but unfortunately didn’t manage to secure an NQ position. The market for NQs is not brilliant I don’t think, but I got offered an in-house role in a company based in the UK.

I never really thought about going in-house before and submitted an application on a whim as I thought the role might be interesting – but I always hear about people who go in-house at 2 or 3 PQE – Will it damage my career going in at NQ level?
