We DO Value our Graduates

Hear Stephen McCallion discuss how we value our people. Stephen joined BDO in 2007 as a trainee and now he is an Audit Partner in our Dublin office:


As auditors, we look to see if our client’s statements about their financial position are true and fair. We review and assess their financial processes and controls and test a sample of underlying transactions. We use the results of our testing as a basis for our opinion on the truth and fairness of the financial statements.
