After achieving my A Levels, I joined the civil service and worked for 2 and a half years. As I hadn’t gone to university, I felt like I was missing a higher level qualification which would allow me to pursue the career that I have always wanted.

The BDO school leaver scheme allowed me to work for one of the biggest Accountancy Firms in the world and gain real commercial experience whilst studying towards one of the most prestigious professional qualifications in the marketplace.

Throughout the two years I have been in the Business Restructuring department I have been fortunate enough to work and take responsibility for a wide range of projects that, at other firms, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do. I can definitely say joining BDO was the right decision for me and can see myself here for many years to come.
