Audit School Leaver Apprenticeship Programme

Job description

Ideas | People | Trust

We’re BDO. An accountancy and business advisory firm, providing the advice and solutions businesses need to navigate today’s changing world.

The entrepreneurial businesses we work with are Britain’s economic engine – ambitious and high-growth businesses that fuel the economy – and the owners and management teams that lead them.

This is where it all begins

Audit is about exploring whether a company’s statements about their financial position are true, fair and accurate. It’s not just analysing numbers; Audit teams really get to know businesses inside-out. That means you’ll spend every day working as part of a close-knit team, working with individuals at all levels to understand their financial performance, business systems, culture and risks. It’s an exciting opportunity with unparalleled exposure to a range of sectors and the potential for international secondment.

The Audit School Leaver Apprenticeship Programme

Our four-year Audit School Leaver Apprenticeship Programme is your opportunity to combine work experience with achieving your professional qualifications. We'll cover your fees and give you the training and support you need to balance your work and studies. Training isn’t just about passing the exams, you’ll learn a range of personal, management and commercial skills that will help you become a fully rounded professional.

What we’re looking for

We want you to thrive in an environment built to help you succeed. We’re looking for the following:

  • Three A-levels or equivalent at A*-C excluding General Studies and Extended Projects (obtained or predicted)
  • 9-4 in maths and English at GCSE/Scottish Standards or equivalent (non-UK qualifications also considered)
  • Ability and commitment to balance study and professional work
  • Strong desire to understand our business and achieve your full potential
  • Candidates who hold an undergraduate degree are not eligible for this scheme, but are welcome to explore our graduate programmes

When you join us, we’ll make your growth our priority. We’re always looking for ways to invest in and develop our people. That means providing you with an environment where you can grow, learn, and feel respected, at all times.

Why Accountancy at BDO?
