A benefit of working at a mid-tier firm is that we get to work with and interact with clients straight away, often within the first week. BDO is perfectly positioned as they're small enough that we get to be very hands on even as graduates and large enough that we also get to work on high-profile clients. The actual work we do is heavily accounting based, so an interest in accounting is absolutely critical. From the moment you're booked on your first client you'll be responsible for certain procedures and audit areas, with increasing complexity as you gain more experience. We work closely with the rest of the engagement team, so there's always someone available for support and training. We tend to be on jobs for about a week and we get to work across all industries, with the option of specialising if we choose.
