Audit at BDO
Audit is about exploring whether our clients’ statements about their financial position are true, fair and accurate. We work closely with their finance team and other key stakeholders to really get to know their business and identify any weaknesses - from their financial statements, to their business systems or working culture. We then provide tailored advice on suitable solutions. On our trainee programmes, you will develop specialist skills and work on fascinating projects while studying for specialised qualifications. You may also have opportunities to gain other qualifications during your programme.
As an Auditor at BDO, you’ll work with all kinds of different organisations in a host of sectors. We have specialist areas ranging from real estate to public sector assurance, from professional service to not-for-profit, from consumer markets to the energy mining industry, and from technology media through to internal audit, with a public sector or risk and advisory focus. Whichever stream you follow, every day will bring a new and rewarding challenge.
