This job in a nutshell

Join the BDO family, a worldwide consulting firm where you can bring your own personality to your job! We help organizations to grow sustainably with our expertise in audit & assurance, tax & legal, advisory and accountancy.

What will you be doing?

A day in the life

You arrive at work at your client’s office, where you’ll spend most of your time. Greeting your temporary colleagues with a smile and a warm hello, you look at your agenda and see that the analysis you’ve been working on is due today. Putting the finishing touches on it, you take the time to help one of your colleagues with that excel problem. A meeting and a lunch break later, you get an email from the BDO Strategy & Transformation office manager reminding you of the upcoming BDO Strategy & Transformation team event. During your afternoon workshop facilitation where you dazzle the client with your insightful remarks, you make a mental note that you must call one of the partners about the improvement opportunity you just discovered for your client. After driving home at a reasonable hour in your company car, you still have the time to go do some sports, have dinner with the family, and go out for drinks with friends where you discuss your interesting day at work.


Financial Institutions (Banks, Insurance Companies, Payment Institutions, etc.)


You will support financial institutions in their transformation journey, in their efforts to adapt themselves to the changing environment, which involves different domains such as Operations in Banking & Insurance, Customer & Commercial Services and Finance Transformation.


As a consultant, you analyze business processes, spot areas for improvements and propose solutions which are in line with your client’s strategic goals. Together with subject matter experts from the industry, you facilitate workshops to gather both business as functional requirements, perform profound impact analysis and define key assumptions and dependencies, which you all assemble in a well-structured summary.

As soon as there’s consensus on the next steps ahead, you take the initiative to push the solution forward by coordinating and supporting the activities across multiple teams, working closely with the respective project/program manager.


The context of initiatives in which you’ll operate depends on both the client needs as your area of expertise, which includes but not limited to Daily Banking, Lending, Invest and Life or Non-Life Insurance.


Is this your first experience in Financial Services and eager to get to know the industry? We got this covered, as there are many opportunities to both support the Business as being involved in Change Management activities, which help you to build your expertise.
