    As a Senior Manager you’ll liaise with beneficiaries (virtually and in person), coordinate and lead audit teams and review audit reports. This role will specialise in donor and foundations assurance.

    • Demonstrable professional audit experience
    • A professional accountancy qualification (ACA / ACCA / DEC / CIMA or equivalent);
    • A genuine interest in international development and working in a multi-cultural context.
    • An ability to communicate in a professional, constructive, and respectful manner
    • Experience of working or volunteering internationally, ideally for an international organisation such as a foundation is preferred

    Company

    When the most ambitious, entrepreneurial, and high-growth businesses need accountancy advice, they turn to BDO. The work our Audit team does is essential, not just to BDO, but to the whole economy. Working across a variety of sectors, we verify the accuracy of our entrepreneurial businesses’ financial statements for stakeholders, including shareholders, governments, tax authorities, banks, and customers, ensuring the stability and authenticity of the financial market.

    We’re as dedicated to helping our people succeed as we are our entrepreneurial businesses. We encourage an independent and entrepreneurial approach to everything our people do. You'll be supported to apply your style of working and use your initiative to solve problems in a way that achieves optimum outcomes and complements the team's abilities.

    Flexibility is fundamental to the future of our operation and it’s a future we’re looking forward to. As we evolve to new ways of working, finding the balance of work and life – prioritising client results while learning lessons and finding advantages from disruptions. Our teams are dynamic and diverse by design. We see the value in everybody's unique experience and expertise – finding strength where they overlap and innovation where they differ.

    As you’d expect we offer a competitive salary and first-class benefits package, but our people tell us it's the autonomy, variety and collaboration that really draws them in to build a career with us. We're offering you the opportunity to build on your skills and make your mark by making key decisions and delivering a real impact for entrepreneurial businesses.
