|Contact Name:||BDO Early In Career|
|Job Published:||February 22, 2019 17:53|
A BDO client will generally have some short – term goals and a long- term vision; but standing in their way will often be a number of tax-related issues. Our Job is to act as guides through the complex, ever- changing landscape of tax legislation, to help our clients get where they want to be by the most effective route.
To do this, we must offer many different tax services. These include day-to-day compliance with the tax authorities, advice on employment taxation and international tax, transaction support for deals such as mergers and acquisitions, VAT services, expatriate tax advice and more. Such a diverse offering means we need similar variety in our team.
We need specialists who can handle the most technically challenging and sector-specific issues, we need versatile and people-focused individuals who can field a wide range of questions from large owner-managed businesses, and we need brilliant innovators who can work on tailored solutions to address a client’s specific circumstances.
Our Tax summer internship programme provides high-calibre undergraduates in their penultimate year with an opportunity to experience life and work at BDO. It will give you a useful insight into our business and culture and help you decide whether to apply for the graduate programme. You’ll be given a real taste of life at the heart of the firm, working on interesting projects alongside graduate trainees and experienced professionals.
As the internships can be a spring board into a full time career with us, it is important that all candidates can demonstrate an understanding of the role and the attributing professional qualifications.
Our Internship programme lasts six weeks – running from mid-July to late August each year.
