Looking for a graduate job?
Join our Audit & Assurance Graduate Programme
Not a single business stream but a whole set, our seven national advisory streams deliver more than 25 distinct services between them, to a broad range of clients and markets.
What you will be doing
Working in Audit means much more than just analysing numbers, we really get to know our clients by building close relationships with key individuals there in order to help them and their investors to better understand their financial performance, business systems, culture and the risks they face and then to provide crucial advice to them in these areas.
Our structured development programme will help you to develop your career in whichever direction it takes by supporting you to study for your professional qualifications (ACA or CA) whilst working in different industry sectors. You’ll work as a part of a team, all of whom will be highly supportive, and there are plenty of opportunities to socialise together as well.
In your third year there is the possibility that you could get involved in an overseas secondment to one of the firms in our international network across the 156 countries in the world in which we operate.
Working within Audit & Assurance, you could explore:
Energy, Mining & Industry
Real Estate & Construction
Technology & Media
What you will have
As a part of the Audit team you’ll become an indispensable adviser to our clients whether they are listed on FTSE350 or AIM, a national not for profit organisation or a fast growing privately owned business with overseas operations.
We’ll expect you to have, or be on course for, a 2:2 or above in any degree discipline. You should also have three A Levels in any subject (excluding General Studies and Extended Projects) plus GCSEs in Maths and English Language, all at grades A* - C. Equivalent international qualifications are welcome.
We recognise that your qualifications and work experience don’t tell us the full story. So we’re keen to find out what you care about and love to do in life. After all, BDO is a place where you should feel free to be yourself. We always look for people who are supportive, responsible, honest and collaborative.
Applications are screened on an on-going basis, so we advise you to apply as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Company benefits: • A counselling manager or buddy to provide support whenever you need it • Networking groups, socials, sport events and volunteering opportunities
