Accountancy firm BDO has hired 12 new trainees at its Liverpool office with a combination of school leaver apprentices and university graduates.

In total there are 600 trainees joining BDO across the UK. More than half of the trainees will join the firm’s audit practice. They will have the opportunity to undertake a level-7 apprenticeship programme, resulting in a qualification equivalent to a master’s degree.

This year, the firm has also hired more than 50 industrial placement students for 12 months between their second and third year of university, as well as 70 summer interns.

BDO also runs targeted insight programmes aimed at school or college students from lower socio-economic backgrounds and university students from a black heritage.

Applications for the firm’s 2023 graduate and school leaver apprentice programmes will open later this month. There will be more than 700 positions available nationwide and over 50 in the North West.

Ed Dwan, head of BDO in the North West, said: “As a firm, we believe in the importance of providing career opportunities and pathways that enable young people from all walks of life to access a vibrant and exciting profession, such as accountancy.

“The success of our graduate and school leaver apprentice programmes is testament to that continued investment and the commitment of everyone involved.

“The education of young people has undoubtedly been severely disrupted in the last few years. Both school leavers and graduates have to navigate learning and examinations in very challenging circumstances.

“Each and every one of them should be extremely proud of their achievements. We look forward to supporting them on what will hopefully be a long and successful career journey at BDO.”
