Welcome to BDO LLP, where we help people and businesses succeed.
As one of the UK’s largest accountancy and business advisory firms, we’re proud to work with a wide range of clients, from entrepreneurial enterprises to multinational groups, and we take the same pride in growing your career. With us, you’ll get plenty of opportunities to develop your skills in areas that include audit, tax advice, risk management, forensic accounting, business restructuring and corporate finance. But it’s the people you’ll meet who will really help you succeed.
At BDO, you can be yourself, sharing ideas and opinions with your team, and knowing you’ll be respected and valued for your contribution. You can have confidence that you are part of an organisation with purpose, where you’ll have variety and opportunity to build your career path alongside people who will help you achieve your goals.
We’ll help you succeed
Throughout your 6-week internship you’ll gain invaluable knowledge and skills as well as exposure to BDO and our people, which could lead to an offer of a graduate role.
You’ll explore different specialisms within your stream and contribute to a range of client projects. This will allow you to expand your portfolio of skills and experience a breadth of opportunity. You will receive extensive training as part of your induction week including specific stream training, information on professional qualifications and workshops specially designed to introduce you to our values and the importance of wellbeing. Applying the knowledge you have learnt about the firm you will also contribute to a group project throughout the internship with peers from different areas of the business.
Our advisory practice provides corporate finance and transaction services, business restructuring, forensic advisory and risk advisory services to clients navigating a range of challenges. Our auditors spend much of their time at clients’ premises talking to different functions to understand the business. It’s a collaborative team where everyone acquires new skills in order to achieve their potential. If you become a qualified auditor, you can choose to specialise in an industry sector, either gaining a reputation as a leading expert in a field or becoming a generalist and looking after clients across a range of sectors.
When you join us
We understand that everyone learns in different ways and the same environment isn’t always suited to every task. We’ll help you deliver the best quality output by giving you choice and flexibility around how, when and where you work. When you need to work collaboratively, you’ll be able to work closely with colleagues, whether that’s in our offices, onsite with clients, or one of our brand-new hubs; when you need to focus, you’ll be able to work from home or in one of our quiet concentration spaces, using technology to stay connected with colleagues. We’ll provide the environment, digital tools and training to enable you to perform at your best, whatever the task in hand, for yourself, your team, and your clients.
When you join us, we’ll make your development our priority. If you’re the right fit, you’ll thrive in an environment built to help you succeed. We’re looking for;
• A university student in their penultimate year of university
• A predicted 2:2 degree in any discipline
• Three A-levels or equivalent at A* to C excluding General Studies and Extended Projects (obtained or predicted)
• A 9 – 4 in Maths and English at GCSE or equivalent (we will also consider qualifications from outside the UK)
Our firm is distinctive and we want to preserve and build on the strengths of our culture and the characteristics that make us both successful and different. We look for people from all kinds of backgrounds who share these same qualities.
