What our previous interns had to say:

I want to thank everyone at BDO NI for the opportunities I have had – it has been an amazing experience. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this internship, but I got far more out of it than I could have ever imagined. Meeting everyone and getting hands on with accounting work has been brilliant.
Being in the audit department for the past few weeks has been a good experience for me to grasp how it operates, as well as increasing my skillset in Excel and team working. I felt welcome here from the very beginning. This internship has really solidified my choice in a career in audit in the future, I was exposed to a breadth of tasks and had the opportunity to experience working on a client site. Thank you so much for this opportunity.
During my time in the internship, I have gained valuable insight in the audit department in BDO NI. I was allocated many tasks and completed them with my best efforts. Everyone was very helpful whenever I needed assistance on my tasks. The Business Insight Programme was enjoyable. I believe the internship was structured well.
A big thank you to everyone who has made my placement such a pleasant and valuable experience. I’ve really enjoyed gaining an insight into the audit department and getting to know future colleagues from the various departments. Everyone has been so helpful and friendly; I look forward to my return in the Autumn.
