Accountancy and business advisory firm BDO has welcomed 27 new trainees with more than 30 roles available to start later in 2021.
BDO’s team across its Birmingham and Nottingham offices welcomed its 2020 cohort in November compromising both graduates and apprentices.
The new joiners took part in virtual inductions while BDO’s workforce continues to work remotely as a result of COVID-19.
Richard Rose, partner and head of BDO LLP in the Midlands, said: “2020 was a year like no other but, despite the immense challenges facing businesses and individuals alike, we are delighted to have recently welcomed 27 new trainees to our team, and more than 30 in 2021.
“Through a combination of the latest technology and a unified approach by our 350-strong team in the Midlands, we have been able to support our clients and communities during the global pandemic from our homes.
“This flexibility and focus on our core purpose to help people succeed, will allow our new cohort of trainees to still fully immerse themselves into their first few months with BDO, while the vast majority of our colleagues continue to work remotely.
“Our own Rethinking the Economy analysis shows that investing in talent is hugely important to businesses in the current climate, particularly in young people looking to kick-start their careers. That’s why it’s important to look ahead and invest in the best and brightest people who will become our advisers of the future.”
