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

We work with the companies that are Britain’s economic engine – ambitious, entrepreneurially-spirited, and high‑growth businesses that fuel the economy - and directly advise the owners and management teams that lead them.

We’ll broaden your horizons

Working with every department at BDO, our Finance team helps us meet relevant legal requirements that ensure our firm operates effectively in a tightly regulated field.

Leading organisations 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 them and building long-lasting relationships.

You’ll be someone who is both comfortable working proactively and managing your own tasks, as well as confident collaborating with others and communicating regularly with senior managers, directors, and BDO’s partners to help businesses effectively. You’ll be encouraged to identify and draw attention to opportunities for enhancing our delivery and providing additional services to organisations we work with.

  • Prepare allocated balance sheet reconciliations including firm-wide accruals and prepayments, accurately and on time, capturing and communicating risks and opportunities to appropriate stakeholders.
  • Be the first point of contact and key business partner to the SSC business.
  • Be responsible for the accurate and timely posting of the SSC Recharge mechanism.
  • Attend monthly LT meetingsfor PMD’s as directed by the PMD Management Accounts Manager to present financial results, highlight variances, and discuss future risks and opportunities.
  • Support the PMD's in their preparation of annual budgets and half-year forecasts.
  • Assist in the implementation of key financial and reporting processes where necessary.
  • Establish, maintain, and post month-end journals.
  • Perform other ad-hoc financial work as required.
  • Assist with basic day-to-day related queries from the business.

You’ll be someone with:

  • Actively studying towards ACCA qualification or equivalent.
  • Proven experience in a similar accounts function.
  • Analytical and numerical ability - able to analyse and interpret data.
  • Excellent planning and organising skills - able to manage multiple tasks effectively.
  • The ability to prioritise own workload to meet business needs.
  • Experience with explaining financial information to people with less accounting knowledge.
  • Attention to detail when producing data, reports, or other analysis.

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 every colleague the opportunity to work in ways that suit you, your teams, and the task at hand.
