Ideas | People | Trust

We’re BDO. An accountancy and business advisory firm, providing the advice and solutions entrepreneurial organisations need to navigate today’s changing world.

We work with the companies that are Britain’s economic engine – ambitious, entrepreneurially-spirited and high‑growth businesses that fuel the economy - and directly advise the owners and management teams that lead them.

We’ll broaden your horizons

The Business Services and Outsourcing team are essential to meeting our clients' evolving requirements. As well as delivering long-term, sustainable value to businesses by providing a range of solutions such as accounting, payroll and compliance services, they also play a key role in tying together many of our services across BDO both domestically and internationally. By building deep and meaningful relationships with a range of clients from ambitious entrepreneurial SMEs to large multi-national groups, our BS&O team don’t just advise on their specific business challenges, they open doors for other teams to provide our firm’s wider service offering. To succeed in this agile environment, you’ll need to demonstrate excellent problem-solving skills and initiative. In return, you’ll have the opportunity for progression, and the chance to develop in one of the industry’s most exciting and varied roles.

We’ll help you succeed

As an Assistant Manager you will be responsible for a portfolio of clients and be required to work closely with and support more senior members of the team in the timely delivery of services.

Services you can expect to fall within your portfolio are the review of year-end statutory accounts compliance and liaising with the necessary audit teams (both BDO and non-BDO) as well as any ad-hoc advisory services requested.

You will determine resource requirements to service your portfolio, monitor progress against budget and time-frames, review work of more junior members of staff and resolve issues prior to Manager or Partner review.

You will work independently and be accountable for the delivery of the project to the Manager or Partner for review, being the first point of contact for our clients and auditors throughout the project.

In addition to accounting capabilities, you will have a rounded business knowledge, able to analyse client data, make recommendations and talk credibly to clients on the issues they face.

In this role you will have a key role in the development of our team, promoting BDO values and providing performance feedback.  As an Assistant Manager you will have direct reports whom you will support with performance, development and wellbeing.

You’ll be someone with:

  • Qualified Accountant ACA, CA or equivalent
  • Excellent working knowledge of FRS102 and IFRS
  • Experience in a trainee or senior role, including delivering statutory accounts preparation or accounting services to ambitious entreprenuerial businesses.
  • Evidence of ability to research technical accounting matters.
  • Working knowledge of financial products, firm services, issues regarding advice and regulation and compliance, including anti-money laundering.

You’ll be able to be yourself; we’ll recognise and value you for who you are and celebrate and reward your contributions to the business. We’re committed to agile working, and we offer every colleague the opportunity to work in ways that suit you, your teams, and the task at hand.

At BDO, we’ll help you achieve your personal goals and career ambitions, and we have programmes, resources, and frameworks that provide clarity and structure around career development.

We’re in it together

BDO’s people represent a wealth of knowledge and expertise, and we’ll encourage you to build your network, work alongside others, and share your skills and experiences.
