The team in the Birmingham office made me feel at home and in a safe environment to try and excel in a role and industry I had no prior experience of. I really appreciated the social interactions both at and away from the office that gave me a chance to understand the role of a tax advisor better.
I found it a great opportunity to learn more about finance through practical work experience and studying towards the ACA qualofication. All the olleagues have been very welcoming and my managers are great mentors, especially those that have been through the same grad scheme before and have been extremely supportive throughout.
I have really enjoyed my first few months at BDO, I found that I have learnt a lot and that every day is different and interesting and there is so much to learn every day. I have also enjoyed the studying that BDO have put me through and am looking forward to progressing.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Insight day with BDO, Leeds. All the attendees and staff present were very friendly and knowledgeable both about BDO as a company as well as Accountancy as a career. I also found the short Q & A's with the current Graduates and School Leavers to be very useful in helping me to find out more.
I hope to enter the audit division and getting to hear from a trainee in audit and ask a plethora of questions regarding life in audit was definitely useful! Hearing about BDO's other divisions was also great (tax, corporate finance) for insight and understanding the difference and why people enjoy their division.
I really enjoyed this insight day. It was well organised, office was great and staff were really friendly. I never felt intimidated at any point and you were encouraged to ask as many questions as you needed. You met and spoke to people from every level of the company including current trainees as well as partners. So you could see a total oversight of what to expect if you were to work there.
I enjoyed my placement immensely! I was exposed to a range of people, departments and environments, which made the placement an extremely varied learning experience. I developed as a person and I have learnt many new skills, which will benefit me in my future career. Everyone I meet was friendly and made my placement an overall really enjoyable experience.
The day as a whole was a very useful experience, allowing me to gain much more of an understanding of the accountancy industry. The structure of the day was very well thought out, providing us with all the information we would need and plenty of opportunities to ask further questions.
The day at BDO provided a great ‘insight’ into life at the company and helped us to understand more about what a career in accountancy involves. I found the day to be really informative and useful. The day also provided useful hints and tips for the recruitment process and what to expect. Everyone was welcoming and friendly; overall it was a very enjoyable day.
The internship at BDO was really enjoyable and I thoroughly enjoyed my time. I was able to gain lots of knowledge in the accountancy profession, developing my understanding of audit, and be exposed to many clients. Everyone I worked with was extremely friendly and helpful, and always willing to answer any questions.
