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

We’ll broaden your horizons

The work of our Audit teams is essential, not just to BDO, but to the whole economy. Working within a number of sectors, they verify the accuracy of our clients’ financial statements for stakeholders, including shareholders, governments, tax authorities, banks and customers, ensuring the stability and authenticity of the financial market. That’s why we're so committed to helping our clients, and our people to succeed. As part of our Audit team, you'll receive the support you need to reach your potential. From completing professional qualifications to developing new skills and exploring different learning opportunities, you’ll join a friendly and diverse team whose work really matters. Use your skills to build a career in Audit at BDO.

We’ll help you succeed

You’ll be an Internal Audit Assistant Manager (AM) who will take responsibility for running audits, and supervising the work of more junior staff, working directly with our clients under manager or RI supervision. AMs get involved in a range of more complex audits and projects, and will gain broad experience of delivering audits and related projects across our commercial and not for profit client base. You’ll also:

  • Conduct audits from planning to final reporting, using experience and judgement to apply BDO’s internal audit methodology, seeking guidance from managers as required.
  • Execute a wide variety of audit tests/ procedures and accurately interpret results, whilst ensuring the work is competently and efficiently performed in accordance with professional standards.
  • Apply internal control concepts in a wide variety of settings, develop appropriate testing approaches and assess the exposures resulting from ineffective or missing control practices.
  • Understand the financial, operational, and compliance risks which effect activities. Demonstrate the ability to identify and appropriately define those risks, and formulate recommendations which are appropriate, practical and cost-effective.
  • Prioritise work so resources are devoted to areas of highest risk in line with the audit needs assessment.
  • Consistently document relevant facts and information which support the work performed and conclusions drawn, so other reviewers can follow the auditor's logic in line with the BDO internal audit methodology and quality assurance requirements.
  • Effectively evaluate audit results, weighing the relevancy, accuracy, and perspective of conclusions against the accumulated audit evidence. Be effective in communicating audit results, both verbally and in writing (will be reviewed by senior members) so they are persuasive, placed in the appropriate context, and understood by the recipient.

When you join us, we’ll make your growth our priority. If you can demonstrate the following skills, we can help you go far. We’re looking for someone with:

  • At least four years of relevant experience, of which one year or more is in internal audit.
  • ACA, ACCA, MIIA or CCAB qualified (or equivalent).
  • Proficient in MS Office.
  • Experience with data analytics software preferable but training will be provided
  • Full driving licence and own car is preferable (flexibility to travel on a regular basis locally with potential for wider travel including international assignments).

We’re in it together

At BDO, we believe that when our people feel valued and rewarded, their potential is unlimited. We offer highly competitive starting salaries and review remuneration packages regularly to ensure that our pay always positively reflects performance. As well offering support with tuition and professional qualifications, we also provide the following benefits, as standard.

  • 25 days’ holiday;
  • access to a personal pension scheme, with matched employer contributions;
  • life assurance cover;
  • and income protection insurance

That’s not all. We understand that everyone is different so, we offer a range of voluntary benefits to suit every lifestyle. Our flexible benefits platform, Flexcel, means our people can choose from a range of tax efficient options to design a benefit package that best suits them. Through Flexcel, they can:

  • buy up to ten days’ extra holiday;
  • add on private medical, personal accident, dental insurance or travel insurance;
  • enrol in our Bike to Work scheme;
  • enjoy discounts off cinemas, dining, and gyms;
  • receive an interest free season ticket loan or interest free graduate loan;
  • access childcare vouchers;
  • take an online health assessment and utilise our employee assistance programme

We’re looking forward to the future

At BDO, we’re big enough to make the difference and collaborative enough to never lose sight of where we’re going. We know that it’s our people that make our success possible. Across our 17 UK locations, more than 5,000 of them work together to provide tax, audit, assurance and a range of advisory services that help our clients achieve their ambitious goals. Together, they’re fuelling Britain’s economic engine. Behind every complex client challenge and every untapped innovation, they’re there: ensuring we continue to find the right combination of global reach, integrity and expertise. That’s why we’re always looking for ways to invest in our people. That means providing them with an environment where they can grow, learn, laugh and feel respected, at all times.
