• Cadet Careers


The BDO cadet program is an exciting and unique opportunity for aspiring individuals to embark on an accounting career. Our program allows you to work full time while you complete your part time undergraduate studies in Accounting. You will have the opportunity to apply your theoretical studies to real life business situations.

Our cadet roles are open to first or second year students who are studying a degree in accounting, commerce or business (accounting major), which allows you to be eligible for the CA program. Individuals must have demonstrated passion for exceptional client service, enthusiasm for growing strong client relationships and commitment to building your own professional capability. As such, previous experience within customer service (accounting or non-accounting related) is highly desirable.

BDO understands that being the leader in exceptional client service begins and ends with exceptional regard for our people. As a result, we offer extensive support and advice not only through your induction, but throughout your career with us. You will have the opportunity to participate in dedicated nationally-accredited training programs along with your own individual development plan to ensure ample professional opportunities and growth throughout your career. Other benefits we provide include;

  • Paid weekly study leave to attend university classes
  • Yearly textbook allowance to support your studies
  • Subsidised university administration fees
  • Paid exam leave
  • Permanent graduate role upon completion of university studies
  • Ample opportunities to network with colleagues and BDO leaders at social events

Applications for the Sydney cadet program are now closed and will reopen again in 2019. To find out where you can meet BDO Brisbane representatives on campus and at student recruitment events, please follow the BDO Careers Facebook page.
