First steps

Everything starts with your induction. We’ll introduce you to our business and help you get your bearings. This is also your chance to get to know your fellow trainees and begin building a strong network at BDO. This will give you a strong platform from which to launch your career. It’s all about getting you ready to begin your chosen graduate programme.

Ever-present support

Make no mistake, your training with us will be hard work. But we want you to succeed as much as you do. So from day one you can draw upon an extensive network of support, including mentors, partners and your individual counselling manager. They are there to help you to settle in, to find the best ways to meet the challenges you will face and to realise your full potential. In addition you will also be assigned a buddy (a more experienced colleague) and you can use the Professional Qualifications Team, whose focus is to support you through your professional exams.

Your training

We pay for your professional training (except exam re-sits). This is conducted by external tutor firms, except for CTA training which we offer in-house. Each qualification is a mixture of self-taught and classroom teaching. We make sure you have sufficient study time and support whilst studying. Consequently our results are excellent!

Our training includes not only the specialist knowledge and practical skills you’ll need for your business area, but also a range of personal, management, client service and client-winning skills. Together they will help you to become a fully rounded BDO adviser.

Which qualification?

Choosing a particular business area and qualification may seem a daunting decision to make at this stage. We aim to give you as much information as possible about the options available, so you can see how well they fit in with your strengths and interests.
