The secret of our success is our people, which is why we continue to invest in them as a priority.

BDO is made up of over 5,000 individuals, each of whom brings something special and unique. Our experience shows that creating a firm where our people can be themselves leads to enhanced success, increased profitability, diverse decision-making and – quite simply – makes life more enjoyable.

We recognise the responsibility we have to all our people – and to our clients – to build and promote an inclusive and diverse culture. We value individuals: their knowledge, their skills, their technical abilities, their digital mindset, their independence, their objectivity, their exceptional service and their background and interests.

We recruit people who engage their personalities as well as their skills. Who take the initiative, and find imaginative solutions. So whatever you bring in terms of talents, abilities and personality, we’ll find a way to make it work for us, our clients and you. We want you to succeed, just as much as you do.

We’ve been listening to our employees and clients and are developing a new way of working that will allow us to choose the best way to deliver the task in hand. Rather than being prescriptive about how many days you come into the office, we’re working towards an agile approach that allows you to have the flexibility and choice to decide where to work, balanced with the needs of your clients, colleagues and the firm. This will mean you can work how you will be most productive. As a UK regulated firm there are complicated tax and legal implications associated with working from another jurisdiction, so you’ll need to be in the UK while working.

We’re investing an extra £10m in technology each year over the next three years to continue to improve agile working. We’re adapting our offices to create hubs for team collaboration, client meetings or focused work, starting with our Baker Street and Bristol offices. We’re also working with the London Business School to offer training and skills development to ensure our people have the tools they need to succeed. True agile working will only become a reality after the C-19 restrictions are fully lifted, and we’ll begin adopting our new ways of working later in the year, continuing to listen, review, reflect and adapt to ensure we evolve with the needs and expectations of our employees and clients.
