BDO Graduate Career Profile
We know how to make sure our people give their best. Quite simply, we let them. We hire those who show the most potential and then we help them put it to work, turning our clients’ business dreams into practical realities.
BDO is about exceptional client service. This means we take the time to get to know our clients well, to understand what they want to achieve and then give specially tailored advice. So we choose people who can rise to this challenge, who have colourful personalities as well as brilliant skills, and who can take the initiative and find creative solutions.
If you want a firm where you can make real progress, then ours is the ideal size. BDO’s nationwide presence and international network (the fifth largest in the world) creates vast scope for you to develop, and to discover the specialism in which you’d most like to work. Yet we are proud to remain local advisers to clients who value our sheer attentiveness – because even for a big firm, it is the small things that can matter most.
We give you all the training you need to attain your professional qualifications, along with extensive practical experience that includes on-site client work. With so many clients, sectors, situations and assignments, no two days are ever the same – but constant support means that you are never out of your depth. After all, we want you to succeed as much as you do. Exceptional client service starts here.
The place to succeed with flying colours
The best-kept secret of accountancy work is how diverse it can be. What we do is better described as “business advice” – and there are almost as many kinds of advice as there are businesses. Our services draw on a range of disciplines, and we encourage you to find the specialism that plays to your strengths and interests.
For instance, audits help businesses to improve their operations as well as meet legal requirements. Tax advice can deliver a host of benefits to growth. Our corporate finance experts advise companies on raising cash to expand. We offer vital business restructuring advice to clients in financial difficulties. We have forensic accountants who deal with legal disputes, fraud investigations and criminal cases. We also maintain a specialist Financial Services stream, who advise clients in this dynamic sector. Our clients range from small family businesses to major multi-national companies, to public sector organisations and charities. Meanwhile our consultancy division offer a whole range of services of their own. And with virtually every industry sector on our radar, the learning and the new experiences never stop.
Thanks to our 21 regional offices across the British Isles, our people are never far from their place of work. Many also take advantage of the overseas secondments that we offer. With 1,200 offices in 144 countries, BDO International is the largest accountancy and business advisory network serving the mid-market, and a huge source of potential opportunities for development. It all adds up to a colourful world of choice.
