|Think accountancy is just about number-crunching? Think again.
We’re BDO, one of the UK’s largest accountancy and business advisory firms, working with some of the most exciting and ambitious companies in the UK and across the world. We find solutions to their toughest challenges. That means there’s so much more to a career here than just the number-crunching you might assume of accountancy, and there are lots of ways you can make a big impact.
Who the programme is for
We’ve created the Explore BDO Virtual Insight Week to show you what’s exciting about a career at BDO. This programme is specifically open to students in Years 11-12 who attend a state school and meet our social mobility criteria based on the job of the main earner in their household.
At BDO, we believe your career success should be defined by your talent and drive, not your background. You don’t need any previous experience in accountancy. If you’ve got the drive and the determination, then we’d like to hear from you.
What you’ll do
Over a week, from the 1st-5th August, you’ll join a range of virtual sessions that give you the opportunity to fully understand what we do at BDO and what your career here could look like. You’ll meet our senior leaders, recent apprentices, and industry experts, whilst developing professional skills you can add to your CV that will give you a head start in your career both here at BDO and beyond. If you’re in the relevant year of study with the required grades, at the end of the week you’ll have a chance to secure a fast-track onto our 2023 Summer School or 2023 school-leaver apprenticeship programmes.
This programme is a chance for you to learn more about BDO and the sector we work in. It’s also designed to help you decide if an apprenticeship with us is the best option for you. We see school leaver apprentices as an important part of our future and have a strong track record of hiring talented youngsters who go on to play a major role in our business; our Managing Partner, Paul Eagland, joined us straight from school.
We are running a virtual live chat on 21 February at 4:30pm where you can ask questions and find out if the Explore BDO Insight Week is right for you.
