Vac Work

Our Vacation Work Programme is the ideal opportunity to gain first-hand experience of what it means to be a CA(SA) and to learn about the world of work. Students from 1st year to CTA can apply to join the office closest to them and experience what it is like to work at BDO.

We believe that this kind of hands on experience is the best way to prepare you for your future in a professional services firm - hopefully BDO.


Vac work takes place during the university vacation period, either mid-year, end of year or both, depending on the office. Spaces are limited so the sooner you apply and go through the application process the better! Please note that our application process for Vac work means you will have to go through our usual application process and as part of the process indicate if you would like to apply for Vac work along the way.
