Financial Services Graduate Programme

BDO gives graduates all the training they need to attain their professional qualifications, along with extensive practical experience that includes on-site client work. The firm provides constant support to make sure graduates are never out of their depth. It all adds up to a colourful world of choice.

Our Financial Services clients operate in a landscape of intense competition, economic pressures and ever-evolving regulation, while each will face its own particular challenges too. Our clients need us to mitigate the risks that threaten their business, ease the burden of regulation and adapt to changes in both the market and the economy.

Along the way you will supplement this training with first-hand experience, including on-site client work, as you develop a thorough understanding of the financial services industry through the practical application of your studies.

Working in the Financial Services stream means variety. From the start you will be involved with a wide range of clients, including large international financial institutions and AIM listed companies, but also new entrants and innovative challenger brands. The work we carry out is wide ranging too; you could find yourself working in either:

  • FS Audit
  • FS Advisory
  • FS Technology Risk Advisory

As a trainee adviser to our Financial Services clients you will study towards an appropriate qualification, usually either the ACA (from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) or the CA (from ICAS) in Scotland. There may well be other qualifications you can obtain along the way. This may be subject to change.

At BDO we offer our graduates a highly competitive starting salary and we’ll pay your tuition and all your professional exam fees, as well as bonuses for passing your exams during your training period. You will also be eligible to choose from a range of fixed and flexible benefits to suit your lifestyle, from buying extra holiday to season ticket loans and discounted gym membership.

The majority of our graduate programmes will start in September 2017 but there are a small number of places available to start in December 2017
