From time to time, we also recruit Cadets for BDO Cairns. This is a great foot-in-the-door opportunity for university students either in the first or second year of their Business/Commerce (Accounting) degree to join our firm.

As a BDO Cadet, you’ll work part time across our business services, bookkeeping and support teams while completing your studies, gaining valuable skills and experience.
