BUSINESS advisory firm BDO Northern Ireland has continued its growth with the hire of 12 new trainees in October.

The new starts will take up immediate positions across the business in its audit, tax and business advisory departments.

Partner at the firm, Laura Jackson, said attracting and retaining talent will be a key focus for the post-pandemic recovery period.

“Trends within the labour market have fluctuated significantly over the last 18 months with the pandemic playing a significant role," she said.

“It is vital that opportunities are available to graduates to learn and develop in a broad range of areas which will facilitate their career opportunities in a constantly evolving job market.

“Like most local companies, we strive for excellence and opportunities to grow, develop and harness emerging talent. Several of our partners joined us as graduates and have forged outstanding careers.”
