Operating in 18 offices across the UK, BDO gives School Leavers all the training they need to attain their professional qualifications, with extensive practical experience that includes on-site client work. The firm provides constant support to make sure trainees are never out of their depth. It all adds up to a colourful world of choice.
Our Tax Summer School programme is a 2 week work experience which provides high-calibre A level students with an opportunity to experience life and work at BDO during the summer between years 12 and 13.
It will give you a useful insight into our business and culture while helping to prepare you for the school leaver programme. You will be given a real taste of life at the heart of the firm, working on interesting projects alongside other school leavers and experienced professionals.
Our Summer School has helped many high calibre A Level students to weigh up their options about what to do when they leave school. Even if you take the placement and then decide BDO isn’t for you, you will have some valuable work experience and new skills to add to your CV, as well as some potentially valuable contacts. Even more importantly, you will gain a real understanding of how a professional services firm operates, which will help you make an informed career decision.
The placement typically starts from the end of July and will give those looking for a real alternative to university the opportunity to secure a school leaver role with BDO upon completion of their A levels.
We have Summer School roles nationally within BDO and will aim to place you in an office of your first or second preference.
