Explore BDO Virtual Insight Programme, 5-9 July 2021

Who the programme is for

We’ve created the Explore BDO Virtual Insight Programme to show you what’s exciting about a career at BDO. This programme is specifically open to students in Years 10-12, who attend a state school and have either been eligible for free school meals or would be the first of your family to go to university. At BDO, we believe your career success should be defined by your talent and drive, not your background. You don’t need any previous experience in accountancy. If you’ve got the drive and the determination, then we’d like to hear from you.

What you’ll do

Over a week, from the 5th-9th July, you’ll join a range of virtual sessions that give you the opportunity to fully understand what we do at BDO and what your career here could look like. You’ll meet our senior leaders, recent apprentices, and industry experts, whilst developing professional skills you can add to your CV that will give you a head start in your career both here at BDO and beyond. If you’re in the relevant year of study with the required grades, at the end of the week you’ll have a chance to secure a fast-track onto our Summer School or school-leaver apprenticeship programmes.
