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
