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

Our clients are Britain’s economic engine – ambitious, entrepreneurially-spirited and high‑growth businesses that fuel the economy - and the owners and management teams that lead them.

We’ll broaden your horizons

Our Shared Service Centre team (SSC) provides essential support to a number of teams across our firm. As well as assisting on large-scale operations, beyond the capacity of a core specialist team, they provide the unparalleled expertise we need to keep moving forward. As part of this friendly department, you’ll have the chance to work on exciting projects and develop your skillset. There’s real opportunity, making it a great chance to use industry knowledge and experience to solve problems in your next career step, or it can be a place to learn if you’re just starting out. If you want to work on important projects and explore your potential, we’ll give you the friendly, supportive working environment to go far.

We’ll help you succeed

Our clients trust us because of the quality of our advice. That quality grows from a thorough understanding of their business, and that understanding comes from working closely with clients and building long-lasting relationships.

You’ll be someone who can work pro-actively, managing your own tasks, but you’ll also be confident collaborating with others, communicating regularly with senior managers, Directors, and BDO’s Partners to enable us to serve our clients effectively. You’ll be encouraged to identify and draw attention to opportunities for enhancing our delivery and providing additional services to our clients.

You’ll be someone with:

  • A relevant professional qualification - ACA, ACCA or QBE
  • Significant experience of preparing statutory accounts and preparing management accounts is advantageous.
  • Experience of training junior members of staff and reviewing their outputs.
  • IT skills - strong working knowledge of MS Excel, other MS Office products and similar desktop applications.
  • Knowledge of using accounts production packages is required. Full training on CaseWare will be provided.
  • Well presented with a professional level of communication – both verbal and written.

You’ll be able to be yourself; we’ll recognise and value you for who you are and celebrate and reward your contributions to the business. We’re committed to agile working, and we offer everyone the opportunity to work in ways that suit them, their teams, and the task in hand.

At BDO, we’ll help you achieve your personal goals and career ambitions, and we have programmes, resources, and frameworks that provide clarity and structure around career development.

We're looking to recruit a dynamic Accounts Hub Senior Associate to join the Accounts Hub based in central Liverpool. This team is one of several Hubs within BDO’s rapidly growing Shared Service Centre (SSC). SSC team members work internally within the business providing support to the client facing members of the firm.

SSC Senior Associates work on the timely delivery of services maintaining the highest quality of output at all times. Whilst being supported by senior members of the team they will manage junior members of the team themselves. This is a great opportunity to work in a growing department which is integral to the long term strategy of the firm.

You’ll also:

  • Support national audit teams with review and quality assurance of statutory accounts prepared under UK reporting standards.
  • Provide cover for Accounts Hub Supervisor during holidays and absences.
  • Monitor throughput, productivity and accuracy of team members’ output.
  • Embed a continuous improvement ethic through effective monitoring and route cause analysis of errors and omissions.
  • Work extensively with BDO’s proprietary workflow tools.
  • Deliver quality assurance outputs to agreed timescale, quality and volume.
  • Deal with internal queries with colleagues and teams across BDO UK.
  • Formally train junior colleagues.
  • Act as a people manager for junior team members, setting and reviewing goals.
  • Provide support to other colleague teams in the SSC dependent upon seasonality of core work.

We’re in it together

Mutual support and respect is one of BDO’s core values and we’re proud of our distinctive, people-centred culture. From informal success conversations to formal mentoring and coaching, we’ll support you at every stage in your career, whatever your personal and professional needs.

We can provide the best support for our clients and people when we’re working side by side. Our agile working framework helps us stay connected, bringing teams together where and when it counts so they can share ideas and help one another. At BDO, you’ll always have access to the people and resources you need to do your best work.

We know that collaboration is the key to creating value for our clients and satisfying experiences at work, so we’ve invested in state-of-the-art collaboration spaces in our offices. BDO’s people represent a wealth of knowledge and expertise, and we’ll encourage you to build your network, work alongside others, and share your skills and experiences. With a range of multidisciplinary events and dedicated resources, you’ll never stop learning at BDO.
