OUR PURPOSE

Underpinning everything that we do at BDO is our core purpose: "helping you succeed".

Three years ago we set out to answer "why do we do what we do?"

Our conclusion - at all grades, in all specialisms - was that we "help people and businesses succeed"

 

“I’m proud that we have an inclusive and empowering culture that encourages people to ‘be themselves’ and flexibly work together to deliver exceptional client service – so we are all as successful as we can be.”

OUR CORE PURPOSE AND MERGER

HELPING YOU SUCCEED

“To me, being successful is about achieving things that matter and the sense of satisfaction and ‘mastery’ this gives us. It’s also important to celebrate success."

Mark Sherfield, Finance Partner, doubles tennis champion(ish)

“Our focus on ‘Be Yourself’ is all about encouraging our people to feel like they can be themselves at work. If people can be true to themselves, they’re far more likely to succeed in realising their own potential.”

Sarah Hillary, partner and Pomeranian dog lover

HELPING CLIENTS SUCCEED

“Our clients want experts with the confidence and experience to help them navigate new and unfamiliar territory, to provide practical and insightful joined-up advice and solutions – people who have an opinion and who want to help them succeed.”

Adam Spires, Director, young father and advocate for cross-stream collaboration

“We work directly with our clients from the earliest stage and have a passion for unlocking their potential. We work together and use the entire resources of our firm to help our clients succeed. Our greatest asset is our people – they have the ideas we need and the trust we share.”

Mark Sykes, Partner, entrepreneur and lover of disrupting the norm

HELPING EACH OTHER SUCCEED 

“I’m proud to work for a firm that recognises it’s a responsible corporate citizen, aware of the wider community in which we work.”

Freya Holdsworth, Digital Content Developer and artist

“We’re honestly a phenomenal firm, made up of incredibly bright and talented people. We have so many examples of working together to achieve great quality results and be successful with, and for, each other.”

Sakib Isa, Audit Senior Manager and property entrepreneur
