A university education isn’t for everyone – some people simply want to get out there and start earning straight away. Our Apprenticeship Programme allows you to do just that. It combines practical work experience alongside ongoing training and support.

We want to ensure that you’re positioned for success, so we’ll help you to make meaningful contributions to our clients whilst working towards a respected professional qualification

    Susie Renshaw

    Senior Resourcing Adviser, BDO LLP

    Susie started working in recruitment straight after university, recruiting accounting staff. She then moved on to graduate recruitment and is now part of BDO’s Early in Career recruitment team, focusing on placing promising young talent into Accounting and Finance roles in the East Anglia and Reading regions.

    Susie acknowledges how difficult it can be to find an apprenticeship that works for you, having been through her own challenges of finding a graduate scheme post-university. This prompted her towards her current path of helping those going through the same process.

    Susie notes that it’s important to talk to young people about the opportunities available to them and that university isn’t the only way to create and take advantage of professional opportunities that come your way.

    Susie says “I often get asked whether you miss out on life at University if you are an apprentice? From speaking to some of our trainees, I find that because they join as a cohort they all keep in contact and meet up for social events, as well as visiting their school / other friends at university on the weekends.”

    Matthew Armitage

    Audit Semi-senior trainee, BDO LLP

    Matthew joined BDO 4 years ago in the Audit programme and now takes a senior role on many of his clients projects. He chose an apprenticeship because he wanted to gain a professional qualification and knew that a career in finance was for him. BDO’s apprenticeship appealed to him because of the opportunity to work towards a professional qualification, as opposed to a university degree.  Matthew says, “I felt that even with a degree, I knew I would have to spend time doing the same exams that I could be doing without the student debt. The apprenticeship offered me the opportunity to earn a salary, whilst also getting invaluable experience in a professional environment.”

    He enjoys the balance of working in a professional environment, as well as having plenty of opportunities to get involved in out-of-office social activities. Professionally, Matthew feels that he has gained a wide range of valuable skills. His role requires him to liaise with clients, directors and partners of all seniority levels meaning that he’s able to network with, and learn from those around him and enjoys variety in his work.

  • Katie Rawlins-Waumsley

    Audit Trainee, BDO LLP

    Katie joined BDO’s apprenticeship programme in March 2018 as she knew a career in finance and accountancy was for her. The course fees associated with pursuing a university degree prompted Katie to seek other routes to qualify.

    She’s now an important part of our Audit team in Ipswich and has gained a variety of useful skills in a short space of time because BDO’s apprenticeship programme comprises practical work experience alongside ongoing training and study.

    Katie notes, “I’ve gained a professional approach to my work and a real sense of achievement in what I do, I’ve learned how to communicate with clients and how to become a significant asset to the teams I’ve worked on.” Katie enjoys the range of opportunities that have been presented to her, such as planning social events with the team, attending networking events, and networking with BDO employees of all levels.
