BDO to recruit record numbers of trainees in the South East

30 December 2019

BDO LLP in the South East unveiled plans this week to significantly increase the number of trainee positions at its regional offices in 2020.

Applications are now open for 60 new roles which will be based across the firm’s two offices in Gatwick and Guildford and split across four key programmes: graduate, apprenticeship, summer school and summer intern.

The majority of both apprentice and graduate trainees are able to undertake a level-7 apprenticeship programme - a qualification equivalent to a master’s degree.

This news comes just months after it was announced that a third of BDO’s regional workforce had been promoted in the last three years.

Anna Draper, partner and head of BDO LLP in the South East said:

“We are really pleased to announce our plans to recruit a record number of new trainees for 2020, demonstrating our ongoing commitment of investing in people. We’re proud to attract dynamic and forward-thinking trainees who share our ambitions and will become ‘advisers of the future’.

“The most rewarding part of my role is seeing our people succeed in their own careers and thriving in our dynamic and supportive culture.

“The accountancy profession has long been an advocate of apprenticeships. BDO wants to see the government continue to support this route into work to increase the number and quality of apprenticeship places on offer - this in turn will help address the UK skills and productivity gap.”

BDO is the prominent accountancy firm in Surrey and Sussex, employing over 200 staff at our offices in Gatwick and Guildford. We deliver the widest range of professional services in the South East to growing entrepreneurial private and listed companies, as well as not for profit organisations and high net worth private clients.
