At BDO we like to be ourselves, and you can be yourself here too. We value you as an individual and want you to realise your aspirations.
We give you the support you need to shape your own career according to your strengths, skills and personality. Working here enhances your professional development at all stages of your career. Few firms offer the same breadth and quality of work, responsibility and experience.
We recognise and reward your high performance and you have the opportunity to excel, progress and share in our success. Being at BDO is personally as well as professionally fulfilling.
Relationships matter, and we have a friendly and inclusive culture built around our core values of honesty and integrity; empowerment and personal responsibility; mutual support and respect; and professional and personal client relationships.
We are clear on what we expect from you and what you can expect in return. We are a profitable, dynamic and forward-looking firm with a reputation for quality. Our ambition is to be the leader for exceptional client service.
We introduced a flexible working policy as part of our campaign to re-think how the firm operates, in a move that enables our people to choose to work when and where they feel most productive.
Prior to lockdown, we already encouraged employees to work from home for up to 20% of their week and our new flexible working policy marks a significant evolution in our approach.
Lockdown made us see the objectives of flexible working differently. Through technology and communications practices people collaborated and worked as they ordinarily would. The lockdown period also saw employees work slightly earlier or indeed slightly later than the previous standard office hours.
As part of the new flexible working policy borne from the lockdown experience, our working day is now from 7am to 7pm, with BDO Guernsey's 80-plus people able to work within these hours instead of being required to be in the office for set times. The policy is a key part of how we are going to ‘build back better’ after the coronavirus pandemic.
