About BDO
Our Clients

One of the best things about working for BDO is that you will get to deal with a wider range of clients and sectors than you might in some of the other big firms.

At BDO our number one goal is delivering exceptional client service – and we couldn’t do that without first gaining a thorough understanding of each client and the sector in which they operate. Within the firm we have many sector specialists who know particular industries inside-out – but when you first join us, you’ll get to experience working with clients of every shape and size from across many different markets. It makes for a rich and stimulating introduction to the world of accountancy and business advice – one that will open your eyes to the many possibilities ahead of you.

The big difference between us and our competitors is the amount of time and attention we invest in getting to know every client and their business. It’s a bigger investment up-front, but it pays off in the form of happier clients, longer-term relationships, additional work and referral of work, and the best reputation for client service in the business. This is why our people need to be out of the ordinary, too: more attentive, more people-focused and more creative, so they can give our clients that vital bit more.

Across the sector spectrum

We advise businesses and organisations from virtually every sector there is – which of course means working closely with them. The result is a career in which new experiences can be an everyday part of the job.

Each sector has its own unique characteristics and business environment, so having specialist knowledge of these can give us a vital edge.

Our clients can be found in:

  • Financial Services
  • Leisure and Hospitality
  • Manufacturing
  • Natural Resources
  • Not-for-profit (including charities and public sector organisations)
  • Professional Services
  • Real Estate & Construction
  • Retail
  • Technology, Media & Telecoms

You may find that after a few years with us, you are drawn more towards a particular sector. If so, we’ll encourage you to develop that flair to become one of our sector specialists.
