We’re BDO. An accountancy and business advisory firm, providing the advice and solutions businesses need to navigate today’s changing world.
At BDO, we’re committed to building a culture of diversity and belonging. We live in a diverse world and our people should reflect this. We believe everyone deserves an opportunity to explore the roles available at BDO and in accounting more broadly, that is why we run programmes like this for students of black heritage who are currently underrepresented in our industry.
We’ll broaden your horizons
Through our Black Heritage Insight programme you’ll complete a week-long virtual insight experience where you will develop your knowledge of accounting and gain exposure to BDO and our people, which could lead to an offer of a 2022 summer internship or a paid role as a university Brand Ambassador. The aim is to foster Black undergraduate talent at BDO so there is the opportunity to secure a graduate role after a summer internship with us.
We’ll help you succeed
The programme will take place Monday, 5th July – Friday, 9th July 2021. It is the perfect opportunity for you to learn more about BDO and the work we do for our clients. You will gain invaluable knowledge and skills that will set you up for a career with us and beyond. You’ll meet our amazing people, learn more about our Diversity and Inclusion strategy and take part in virtual sessions that will bring the various roles in accounting to life.
This programme is primarily aimed at students of Black Heritage who want to know more about careers in accounting.
