What our staff have to say

“BDO Taranaki provides me with a vast range of opportunities, there are many areas of business advisory that you can specialize and be interested in and at BDO there are many teams that cover these areas which are available for you to join. Another aspect I enjoy is the relationships that I have built with co-workers and clients – these relationships make working at BDO easy and make the days go fast” – Liam Nelson, Chartered Accountant

“When I first came to New Plymouth, I was looking for an accounting firm to join and BDO caught my eye. I wanted to join BDO because I’ve heard great things about their work culture and employees. The flexibility and amount of time and resources BDO spends on each of us to transition us into the team is huge and I find this amazing, and as a Graduate Accountant I am introduced into all kinds of jobs which is helping me learn a lot.” – Colin John, Graduate Accountant

“My family moved to Taranaki at the end of 2020 and I was lucky enough to become part of the fantastic BDO team.  BDO has such a great feel about it, everyone is very friendly and supportive.  I get to be part of such a diverse team with so many different skills.  I feel very lucky in my role as I get to help solve our client’s software frustrations so that they can concentrate on their core business.” – Mary Donovan, Xero Advisor
