Job Description


Working in Audit means much more than just analysing numbers, we really get to know our clients by building close relationships with key individuals there in order to help them and their investors to better understand their financial performance, business systems, culture and the risks they face and then to provide crucial advice to them in these areas.

Our Summer School programme provides high-calibre A-level students with an opportunity to experience life and work at BDO during the summer between years 12 and 13.

It will give you a useful insight into our business and culture while helping to prepare you for the School Leaver Programme. You will be given a real taste of life at the heart of the firm, working on interesting projects alongside other school leavers and experienced professionals.

This 2-week paid work experience programme typically starts from the end of July and will give those looking for a real alternative to university the opportunity to secure a school leaver position upon completion of their A levels.

We aim to accommodate your first or second preference for office location but this will depend on demand and business needs.
