"ACCA appealed to me as it offers great flexibility and provides an internationally recognised qualification"
BDO - Seetal KC, ACCA student, Griffith College Dublin graduate
I graduated from Griffith College Dublin with a BA in Accounting & Finance before joining a small audit practice on a three month internship. I was then attracted to the BDO Graduate Programme and was successful in joining their Outsourcing Department in January 2011.
As a trainee in BDO I've had opportunities to work for a wide range of clients and my duties range from bookkeeping to preparing month end reports, reporting back to clients on a monthly basis and assisting in the preparation of annual accounts. The experience gained with different ERP and accounting systems is invaluable to my career progression. BDO's structured training programme supports trainees through ACCA exams. BDO offered me paid study leave, time off to attend lectures and access to a mentor.
ACCA appealed to me as it offers great flexibility and provides an internationally recognised qualification. Due to my academic background in Accounting and Finance, I received 9 exemptions from the ACCA exams. ACCA has enabled me to develop the necessary skills to become a competent professional accountant which is a highly valued career globally.
