We want you to do well, so here’s some advice about how to present yourself at your best during the BDO online application process.

You must apply online to a specific role and you can only apply to one role at a time.

Preparing your online application

An application can take time, energy and thought to prepare.

You’ll need to detail your academic background, work experience and extracurricular activities. This is an important opportunity for us to learn more about you. We’re interested in what you’ve done, but even more interested in what you do well and enjoy. Please check our eligibility criteria before starting your application.

Tips for applying online

  • Answer each question fully and correctly. Present clear evidence that you have the kind of qualities and skills we’re looking for.
  • Share any information you think would be helpful for us to know, but don’t exaggerate; keep everything factual.
  • Keep to the suggested word limits. Accurate, concise answers are generally better received.
  • Save your application regularly – you don’t have to complete it all at once.
  • Check grammar and spelling, and get someone else to proof-read your application before you submit.
  • You might want to print a copy of your application – in case you want to refer to it again.

Once you’ve submitted your application, we’ll send you an email to let you know we’ve received it. You can then track your application by logging back into the system at any time.
