Application Advice:

Application is self explanatory. Even though it really shouldn't be, from observing the recruitment at the firm, school attendance seems to play a large part.

Interview Advice:

Audit is testing the financial statements to gain assurance that they are true and fair. As long as you are personable you would look good.

Application Advice:

BDO love to see that you actually understand what the company is about, so research the values and goals of the company.
When answering application questions make sure you are prepared to expand on those answers in the interview.

Interview Advice:

When asked a question in an interview, expand and give as much detail to your answer as possible. There is nothing worse then giving a one word answer or for the interviewer to have to ask lots of questions in order to get enough information they require.
Be yourself and make conversation, the interviewer will be looking to see if you will fit into the existing team.

Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Make sure you identify why you want to work at BDO as oppose to any other firm. Try and put as much of 'you' into the application as possible.

Interview Advice:

The interviews consist mainly of competency based questions (e.g describe a time when you worked in a successful team). Avoid memorising scripted answers, but do think about different experiences (leadership, working in a team, a disappointing experience, etc) before the interview so you can recall a relevant situation. Do not overcomplicate your answers or exaggerate. The STAR method could be used to help structure your answers.

Take your time in answering the questions and ask for a moment to think about your answer if you feel it will help you give a clearer response.

Assistant Consultant, Government Services at BDO LLP

Application Advice:

The interview process is fairly similar to most grad schemes. There is an online application where you have to 'give a time...' followed by online tests. Get someone to check over your application, and make use of the free online psychometric tests to get you used to what to expect for the tests (they are fairly straightforward though).

Interview Advice:

Be yourself - BDO like people being individuals. First round interview is just with one person (probably from the office you are applying to). These are your usual interview questions which again are 'give a time...'. Try have things ready that aren't in your application form. Also, know the firms values!

Once you have had your first round interview, if successful, you will be invited to an assessment centre. For my intake we had a group exercise (talk enough to get noticed but also don't take total charge - it is all about working as a team!!), an in tray exercise (which is just about organising your time), a presentation (in front of a manager), and then 2 partner interviews.

One thing to note is you will have a lunch with trainees at the firm. Remember to make a good impression here too...they will be asked what they think of you!

Application Advice:

This role is suited for someone who is willing to learn throughout their career and be comfortable with the fast changing world of tax! It may seem like a lot of work but it is very enjoyable and you can see the value we add to our clients.

Interview Advice:

An important question to answer is "Why BDO?" having generic answers like "it has great values" or "its diversity" will not gain many brownie points. Sometimes the simple answers are the best e.g. "I want to work for a reputable accounting firm as it will be a great platform to kick-start my career"

I would also advise keeping up with current affairs in the tax world to help set yourself apart in the interview process and show you have a keen interest.

Be prepared, look at the competencies that BDO look for in clients (they are on the website) Look at their ethics i.e. about excellent client service and education and empowerment.

Try to mould your answers when talking about your experiences to these competencies.

Interview Advice:

In my interview we talked a lot about similarities between my voluntary work and BDO client based correspondence i.e. how I would deal with upset or angry clients.

My assessment day comprised of a group exercise, which was selecting cost cutting measures for a hospital all of which had positives and negatives. In this scenario it is important to show you have a balanced approach can make points but also understand and develop other people's points. And of course making sure the group is on track to complete the task is very important (keeping an eye on time etc). Then I had to do a presentation on what industry could benefit from BDO services and why.

There was also a written exercise which I really can't remember and an informal chat with my now partner. Although I am told these interviews can vary depending on your partner.

Application Advice:

Ensure you prepare for the interview and assessment centre. Basically do as much as you can beforehand to ensure that you're best prepared for the interview/assessment.

For me this meant second guessing what questions I would be asked so that I was not caught on the spot in the interview.

Interview Advice:

Look on wikijobs.

Application Advice:

Consider a big 4 firm. You will work just as hard, but have a better CV.
Otherwise, go to a smaller firm, where the workload will be more mangeable and the progression opportunities better, at the expense of a lower grade of client and a less impressive CV.

Application Advice:

Client service. Client service. Client service. BDO (understandably) obsesses about it, so emphasise your abilities to serve clients and your willingness to work hard to bring about the best possible outcomes for them.

Interview Advice:

BDO's values were a key question (honesty, integrity, mutual support, strong & personal client relationships) - memorise these and be ready to explain what they mean to you.

Otherwise, a good understanding of the role you're applying to, as well as the industry in which we operate (our competitors etc) is key too.

Application Advice:

The application process should not be daunting. Say what is true about yourself and this will give you the opportunity to be more interesting as you will know more about it and be able to talk at greater length.

Do not slip too far into a jargon, business speak when trying to justify why you want to join BDO as this comes across as fake and forced.

Interview Advice:

The interview should not feel like an interrogation. You should write about what you really like in your application as this will form the starting point of your interview. Therefore, if you want to seem like an interesting person, it is a lot easier to be passionate and excited about topics which you actually enjoy!

Application Advice:

The initial website application can seem awfully long, however to make the right impression time and effort need to be put into this.

Make sure that you do not just copy and past an application from a previous employer. Why do you want to work for BDO opposed to other firms?

Interview Advice:

Try to practise being put under pressure, although I encourage you to think of example questions you could be asked; it is unlikley they will ever be the same. Therefore try to be quick thinking and have a bank of experiences and knowledge you can draw upon.

BDO generally want to know how you can be responsibile, innovative, work in a team e.t.c. and they will ask questions regarding them in order for you to prove you have these skills.

Think about the particular skills you will need for the role and highlight these in your application. Be concise, read your application back to yourself and think would I select me for an interview based purely on this information.

Interview Advice:

Smile. Relax and be yourself (but professional). Interviewers want to see your character. If sucessful you will be part of their team and they need to be able to see if you will fit in well. Look at clients or sectors the company work in and read news articles, think about the challenges the sector and company may face.

Prepare questions for the interviewer, if you can show a true interest in the role and company.

Application Advice:

Do your research, especially on career motivatoin, ie. why audit? why accountancy? And make sure you research the company as thoroughly as you can.

Don't be complacent.

They take on around 80-100 graduates across the UK each year and get over 8,000 applications (I think). They are looking for any reason to discount you and narrow down the search. Go for quality of applications rather than quantity.

Interview Advice:

Standard competency based questions, just do your prep and you will be okay. I used wikijobs a lot through the process and found it extremely helpful!

Application Advice:

Look into the different options of doing an ACA and what you want to achieve by it. Tax offers a stable career and good progression and renumeration options. However it may not be the best place to start if you are looking to move on to different departments in the finance world for the reason that the impressive element of your CV will be that you are tax knowledgable, (which if you don't want to stay in tax may be more of a hinderance than an addition).
