A complex, fast-evolving discipline that places a premium on international collaboration.

Our clients range from early-stage businesses taking their first steps outside the UK to multinational enterprises with complex operations and structures all over the world. They come to BDO for advice on navigating tax issues across different jurisdictions – and we deliver it through an extensive international network of 1,400 offices in 158 countries.

We advise clients on the full range of international issues from transfer pricing policies and documentation to tax-efficient cross-border finance. Our focus is always on broader business objectives and we develop tailored tax solutions to help achieve them. We operate in a dynamic and constantly evolving landscape as governments around the world make changes to their tax legislation.

As a result we look for graduates who have good all-round intellectual and people skills – including the ability to understand complex ideas and interpret them in simple terms. You’ll also need to be ready to collaborate with colleagues from around the world and project-manage solutions with many different strands.

In the early stages of your career, you’ll focus on compliance issues and corporate tax returns. Expect to carry out research, pull together reports and presentations and assist at client meetings. You’ll work towards a joint tax and accountancy qualification route (ACA/CTA Joint Programme) and you’ll be able to supplement your studies with broader in-house technical training. You’ll find your expertise is in high demand, with the possibility of a truly international career ahead.
