I know that there are some graduate positions open in the Internal Audit department at BDO. Most people apply to external audit because there are more vacancies and they don’t know what internal audit does.
Internal audit comes under BDO’s advisory remit and is concerned with providing clients assurance on the design and effectiveness of their control to add value and improve an organisation’s operations.
Benefits of internal audit
- More varied work i.e. the type of audit will vary from Finance to HR
- More scope for promotion. The small nature of the internal audit teams makes it easier to progress as there are less people competing for same managerial roles.
- High chance of being recruited. Although the number of positions is small so is the number of applicants. So there is a good chance that you make it to the assessment centre.
If anybody needs any advice on applying, interviews and assessment centre I am more than happy to help.
