Job Details

We’re BDO. An accountancy and business advisory firm, providing the advice and solutions businesses need to navigate today’s changing world.

At BDO, we’re committed to building a culture of diversity and belonging. We live in a diverse world and our people should reflect this. We believe that a person’s socioeconomic background should not determine their career success, and this is why we want to give students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds an opportunity to explore the roles available at BDO and in accounting more generally.

We’ll broaden your horizons

Our Explore BDO insight week is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the world of accounting. In this week-long virtual insight experience you’ll learn more about BDO, accounting and why what we do is nothing like the number crunching ideas you may have had. You will develop your professional skills and meet our amazing people who work in the whole range of jobs available at BDO. This programme is open to year 11 to 12 students. If you are in year 11, you’ll have the opportunity to secure a place on our bespoke 2023 summer school programme, which then will give you the chance to get a place on our apprenticeship after completing college or sixth form.

We’ll help you succeed

The programme will take place Monday 1st August – Friday 5th August 2022. It is the perfect opportunity for you to learn more about BDO and the work we do for our clients.

You’ll get

• Valuable work experience and skills for your CV

• A deep understanding of how our business works

• Opportunities to learn from and network with our brilliant people

• The chance to secure a 2023 summer internship and/or paid Brand Ambassador role

This programme is aimed primarily at year 11-12 students who meet our social mobility criteria based on the job of the main earner in their household.

The application process:

To get a place on the programme you will need to complete our application form. If you meet our eligibility requirements, you will be invited to a virtual online test prep workshop to give you hints and tips to help you succeed at the final stage in the process, our interactive Assessment

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.
