We’ll help you succeed

Leading organisations trust us because of the quality of our advice. That quality grows from a thorough understanding of their business, and that understanding comes from working closely with them and building long-lasting relationships.

You’ll be someone who is both comfortable working proactively and managing your own tasks, as well as confident collaborating with others and communicating regularly with senior managers, directors, and BDO’s partners to help businesses effectively. You’ll be encouraged to identify and draw attention to opportunities for enhancing our delivery and providing additional services to organisations we work with.

Operating out of 8 locations across the UK, we cover all of the major business centres while offering local expertise to local firms.

We are looking for a high-performing individual looking to advance their career in our fast growing and dynamic team. In addition to the core competencies of client relationship and engagement delivery, you will have strong people values and a passion for mentoring and playing an active role in maintaining and enhancing the strong people culture within our team.

We are looking to recruit an individual to join our expanding Digital team to aid in growing our portfolio of cyber governance work. The role will typically focus on managing and growing the teams delivering cyber security controls assessments and guiding clients on their level of cyber risk, primarily through internal audit. As experts on cyber risk, the BDO Digital team advises clients across industries and geographies, staying at the forefront of knowledge of the threat landscape, cyber defence best practices and regulatory expectations.

We’re committed to building a strong, resilient and adaptable team to lead the cyber governance market, which is built on diversity of profiles and skills. An individual with a selection of the following attributes would be an ideal candidate for application:

  • Strong understanding and working knowledge of IT audits and/ or control gap assessments certification such as CISA preferred
  • Demonstrable interest, training, experience or certification (e.g. CISSP) in cyber security is highly beneficial
  • Strong technical foundation to support the understanding of controls, experience in information technology, IT risk (consultancy experience) or regulatory landscape
  • Ability to build sustainable relationships and networks with team members and with clients
  • Experience managing teams and a passion for supporting the development of self and others
