BDO to recruit 54 Midlands trainees

Accountancy and business advisory firm BDO is set to recruit a record number of new trainees in 2020 in its Midlands offices.

Applications are now open for more than 54 new roles which will be based across the firm’s Birmingham and Nottingham offices and split across its four key programmes: graduate, apprenticeship, summer intern and summer school.

18 of the new roles are apprenticeships and there are 36 graduate roles on offer. The majority of both apprentice and graduate trainees are able to undertake a level-7 apprenticeship programme – a qualification equivalent to a master’s degree.

This news comes a month after the firm promoted 95 people across its Midlands team. The promotions spanned the firm’s tax, audit, BDODrive and M&A practices, as well as its support functions.

Richard Rose, partner and head of BDO LLP in the Midlands said: “We are really pleased to announce our largest ever intake of trainees for 2020, demonstrating our ongoing commitment of investing in people. We’re proud to attract dynamic and forward-thinking trainees who share our ambitions and will become ‘advisers of the future’.

“The most rewarding part of my role is seeing our people succeed in their own careers and thriving in our dynamic and supportive culture.

“The accountancy profession has long been an advocate of apprenticeships. BDO wants to see the government continue to support this route into work and reform the Ofsted assessment system to increase the number and quality of apprenticeship places on offer – this in turn will help address the UK skills and productivity gap.”

BDO recently announced its annual revenues and profit had increased by a quarter to £578m and £134m respectively. In the last six months 400 trainees and eight new partners have joined the firm.
