Training at BDO

Jan 28, 2019

School Leaver and Graduate Training Programmes

When recruiting for our trainee programmes, we look for people who embody our values so that we know they will fit into our team. Your academic achievements are only part of the picture, we also like to know who you are, what you’re really passionate about and what fresh perspective you’ll bring to the office.

Our trainee programmes are typically three years, leading to a professional qualification at the end.

We aim to find graduates with at least a 2:2 or school leavers with 3 A-levels (A-C) and GCSEs including Maths and English (A-C or 9-4). If you’ve narrowly missed out on those grades, you can still apply as we’ll assess your application based on your full range of achievements. Our recruitment process gives you the opportunity to tell us about yourself, your experience and what makes you different.

Work Experience

We offer local Students in Year 12 and 13 the opportunity to gain valuable work experience and find out more about BDO as an organisation. During your time with us you will find out more about the type of work we do and learn more about life as a trainee.

You will need to have achieved A* - C in maths and English at GCSE (Grades 9 – 4) and be on course to gain three A Levels grades A – C excluding general studies and extended projects.
