Ideas | People | Trust

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

Our Advisory team provide a wide variety of services that deliver value-led advice and outcomes. They have an in-depth knowledge of business, industry sectors, and markets and understand the constantly changing risks and opportunities at the heart of affairs. The team work across strategy, operations, and improvement as well as at a transactional and defined project level. From technology to risk advisory, they’re experts in following through on top-level instructions and resolving the finer details – all in one straightforward package. When you join them, you’ll work on some of the world's most exciting financial operations and business deals, building your experience and expertise alongside the brightest minds in the industry

We’ll help you succeed

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.

International Institutions and Donor Assurance (IIDA) works closely with global institutions such as UN agencies, the European Commission, Foundations, and other Development Agencies, particularly those involved in international development. IIDA provides assurance services, including financial and systems audits, certifications, internal control assessments, technical assistance, and consultancy services to international institutions

The audit manager will take the lead in engagement meetings (virtually and in person). You'll prepare audit plans based on a full understanding of the terms of reference and the applicable grant contractual conditions. You'll coordinate and lead audit teams, write and review audit reports.

You’ll be someone with:

  • A professional accountancy qualification (ACA / ACCA / CIMA / DEC or equivalent) is preferred
  • Excellent verbal and written communication in English and a second language (French/Spanish or German) would be an advantage
  • Audit experience
  • A genuine interest in international development and this sector
  • An ability to communicate in a professional, constructive way
  • Proven track record in audit and assurance work
  • international travel for assignments (travel can include, but not be limited to, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East)

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.

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.

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.
