• Undergraduate opportunities in Cairns



"Studying full-time and working part-time was daunting when I applied at BDO. I wanted to gain work experience but I was nervous to sacrifice my grades and spare time for it. It didn’t take long to realise that BDO is supportive of me achieving my personal and professional goals. The firm is flexible with my working days and hours, and allows me to focus on my university studies during stressful times without becoming overwhelmed. My undergraduate role has provided practical application to my studies and has already led to great experiences within the professional accounting environment."
