Hear what previous BDO Graduates have to say about working at BDO:


 “I chose to work at BDO as I knew I would be exposed to a large variety of clients, with more diversity and freedom of choice. As BDO sits in the small to mid-tier market, I believed that would mean I would have a much larger portfolio of clients and be constantly working on different businesses and industries. This, compared to larger firms, which could have the same 2 or 3 job bookings every year meant there was much more I could learn and something different for me to work on every few weeks.” Lucy


"I chose to work at BDO as I felt it would be more ‘hands-on’ in terms of the audit in the sense that I would be completing a larger number of sections and be more in touch with our clients and partners than the larger accounting firms."  Eduard


"The culture is social and balanced. Balanced in the respect that there is no undue pressure to work hours above and beyond what you are contracted and there is the understanding that you should be able to maintain a social life outside of work." Joshua


“By working at BDO I have been able to be exposed to a variety of work and clients  including larger commercial entities, investment portfolios and charities which has helped me develop my knowledge and grow in my role. BDO has also enabled me to travel out to clients and interact with them onsite which gives you a better understanding of their  business and means you can provide a better service.” Bree


“I chose BDO because of the great culture the firm has to offer - there’s so many different things to get involved with outside of work” Andrew


“We are very social here at BDO Christchurch. We play summer and winter sports as a firm, have monthly charities to donate to and have some great events put on like the mid-winter dinner, Te Reo lessons (and lunch) in Maori language week and participate in inter firm competitions such as Active October. It is a great way to meet people both within the firm and to start developing your network from the interactions you have outside of it.” Ben


“Being in the Agribusiness team we get to deal with a wide variety of clients from dairy farmers, sheep and beef, cropping and deer so no two things you pick up are the same. It has helped me develop my knowledge across the different sectors which helps hugely when talking to clients” Ben


“My mentor goes above and beyond to help me learn and develop as a Graduate, and the partner is very encouraging of the work I want to do” Jessica


“BDO has the scale of any top firm internationally while still being able to give you the family feel. The culture here is one of inclusion and teamwork. This applies to both the job side of BDO and the social side. Everyone here is friendly and approachable which is a key factor of why I continue to want my career here.” Amy
