As part of BSO you’ll pull expertise from across BDO, in the UK and internationally.

You’ll help us deliver a mix of business services such as compliance, outsourcing and advisory. It’s a chance to work with a diverse range of clients, which might include an early-stage growth business, an established family business, or the UK arm of an international business.

You’ll be focused on matching our services to meet clients’ specific needs and offer a tailored service. It’s a great opportunity to understand how companies work, and see first-hand how organisations adapt to a changing world. We offer different training programmes across our main three areas of work.

In compliance, our comprehensive training will ensure you understand relevant regulations, laws and accounting standards that businesses must follow in the UK. Once you’ve acquired enough technical expertise, you’ll help advise clients on issues ranging from business regulation through to complex accounting.

Our training familiarises you with the latest technology and solutions, and helps you understand the day-to-day responsibilities of operating a business finance function. You’ll also help clients use new technology to understand and improve business performance.

Advisory is about using the expertise within BDO to deliver insights and help clients unblock obstacles so they can realise their goals. We’ll train you to work closely with clients, and with wider teams in BDO, to find solutions and help businesses plan for the future.

BSO is a test space for new ideas within the firm, so it suits innovative thinkers with a flexible approach who are inquisitive and ready to experiment with new ways of working. We adopted cloud technology early, developed our client experience tool in 2017, and are the first to try new business applications. We seek to foster a sense of shared ownership in this part of the business, removing traditional reporting structures and encouraging individuals to engage directly with clients.
