Looking for the future business advisers and accountants of Taranaki

08 August 2018

So… you have commenced study towards an accounting degree and on top of the worry about exams and student debt, you are also worried about gaining work experience over the summer. Look no further, BDO is seeking expressions of interest to join our team of exceptional people supporting great businesses.


Every September, BDO offers a graduate and intern programme to students at the end of their first year of study. An internship provides the opportunity to spend the following two - three summer breaks working in our office in paid employment (along with the interns that joined the programme over each of the previous two years).

At the end of successful study, interns are offered full time employment along with firm support to complete the Chartered Accountancy programme. Our Graduate programme was setup to support and grow our future business advisers of Taranaki and encourage locals to return home after completing their study.

We value being able to grow and develop our own staff to strive for our high standards in Audit, Tax and Advisory services. Along with our study support programme, we are at the forefront of learning and international trends in accounting.


Here at BDO Taranaki we back New Zealand Businesses. We believe that our business, at its core, is about backing people to succeed and thrive. It’s about creating a better culture for our employees, in and out of the office. It’s about giving back to our communities, and doing our part to preserve the environment.

We offer a workplace that is a step above others in our market, with a wide range of clients that you will love working for and building relationships with. BDO backs work life balance, combining hard work and fun at just the right level. Our flat structure and high empowerment means that you are in charge of your future and career progression. We get to know you – we learn what matters to you and we make it our business to help you realise your goals.

BDO is one of New Zealand’s largest networks of independently owned accounting practices, with offices in Kerikeri, Whangarei, Auckland, Tauranga, Rotorua, Gisborne, New Plymouth, Napier, Palmerston North, Wellington, Christchurch and Invercargill. We are also one of the fastest growing accounting and advisory networks in New Zealand, supporting over 19,000 SME, mid-market and corporate clients.
