From the milkround process, I knew BDO was the perfect training firm for me. The welcoming and friendly atmosphere of the open evening allowed me to interact with trainees, management and partners from the beginning. Meeting with partners in a casual setting before the interview really put me at ease for the entire process.
Working in audit means that I spend the majority of my time out of the office on a client’s site, generally for one to two weeks at a time. The smaller size of teams within BDO, coupled with the responsibility given to trainees, has ensured that I am being given the best possible opportunities to develop and increase my knowledge from the exposure to a wide range of clients and industries. The open structure means that you are encouraged to ask questions, giving me the best possible learning experience.
