Apprenticeship Opportunities - Register Your Interest
As one of the UK’s largest accountancy and business advisory firms, we’re proud to work with a wide range of clients, from entrepreneurial enterprises to multinational groups, and we take the same pride in growing your career. With us, you’ll get plenty of opportunities to develop your skills in areas that include auditing, tax advice, risk management, forensic accounting, business restructuring and corporate finance. But it’s the people you’ll meet who will really help you succeed.
At BDO, you can be yourself, sharing ideas and opinions with your team, and knowing you’ll be respected and valued for your contribution. You can have confidence that you are part of an organisation with purpose, where you’ll have variety and opportunity to build your career path alongside people who will help you succeed.
We work from 17 locations across the UK, but we’re not just a UK business. We are also a member of BDO International, which has more than 1,500 offices worldwide, spread across more than 162 countries.Apprenticeships are ideal for school and college leavers who want an alternative to university, and people in work who want to extend their professional qualifications and business skills.
An apprenticeship is a nationally recognised qualification that you can study while you work. It offers a combination of relevant work experience, achievement of a professional qualification and the development of skills and behaviours required to be a competent professional in your chosen field. At BDO this relates to becoming a professional Accountant or Tax professional. Candidates who hold an undergraduate degree are not eligible for this scheme, but are welcome to explore our graduate programmes.
You’ll join either our Audit&Assurance, Advisory, Tax or Business Services&Outsourcing department (we call them ‘streams’) where you’ll study for your professional qualification. During your programme you’ll have the opportunity to explore some of the different specialities within your stream, and potentially gain exposure to other areas of the business. This will allow you to grow your portfolio of skills, and experience a breadth of opportunity to increase your future options and build a platform to develop your career.
If you successfully complete an apprenticeship at BDO you will gain two qualifications/certifications: your professional qualification and the apprenticeship. At the same time, you’ll gain invaluable experience in a commercial environment, working on real business projects alongside leading industry professionals.When you join us
