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 leading them.

We'll broaden your horizons

The Tax Quality and Risk are responsible for the training, policies and guidance in relation to risk management, which help to ensure we operate effectively within a heavily-regulated profession. Friendly and supportive, you'll have lots of opportunities to learn and collaborate as part of this team. You'll provide leadership, guidance and tools to help our partners and staff to manage quality and risk to ensure we continue to provide our clients with high quality accountancy and business services. It's a full-on role, with lots of responsibility, making significant decisions on a daily basis. Sound like your kind of challenge?

Working across the National Tax Stream on the firm's quality and risk (Q&R) agenda, this is an internal role in the Tax Q&R team providing support to the Tax business to improve, monitor and measure quality outcomes and to help manage risk. On a day-to-day basis, this will involve:

  • Operationalizing and managing those processes day to day.
  • Developing, over time, an understanding of the underlying policies and procedures to enable you to act as an adviser to the business on certain risk matters (precise scope to be defined).
Where parts of the role are closer to your experience you will be encouraged to work relatively independently, with regular touch points/meetings with other team members. Where parts of the role are less familiar, it is anticipated that there will greater direction/support provided from senior team members. You'll also have:
  • Ability to research, analyse, interpret, apply good judgement and communicate effectively to provide the support of the risk processes of the firm
  • Interest in operational efficiencies, governance and the strategy of the wider business and how our work fits into that
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and oral
  • Comfortable liaising with a range of internal stakeholders
  • Excellent time management and organisational skills
  • Ability to manage multiple responsibilities
  • Excellent attention to detail
  • Ability to innovate and think laterally and create efficient processes, including leveraging technology where appropriate
  • Ability to work in a busy environment, meet deadlines, and to respond quickly
  • Ability to develop and work effectively to longer plans for larger scale projects
  • Good knowledge of all Microsoft packages, including ability to prepare of high-quality presentation material, briefings for senior leaders, board packs etc
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'll help you succeed

Leading organisations trust us because of the quality of our advice. That quality grows from a thorough understanding of their business, and that understanding comes from working closely with them and building long-lasting relationships.
