Why BG Private is a great next step

Whether you are at the Intermediate, Senior or Manager level, these are some of the reasons to join us:

1. We are a leading Melbourne firm (with a Sydney footprint).

BG Private is a well-known mid-tier accounting, audit and advisory firm that is consistently listed on the AFR Top 100. We offer challenging and fulfilling work coupled with work-life balance. We’re also unique for our size in that we have nine service lines ranging from traditional accounting to corporate advisory.

2. Join the rocket ship.

We are a stable firm in an exciting growth phase, which gives you opportunities to help implement the firm’s strategy and shape its future. Our senior staff make a real impact by helping to improve everything from our services to processes.

3. Work alongside the best in the business.

Our people are high performers with a depth of expertise that creates an intellectually satisfying environment. We hire positive, intelligent, and innovative people – and you’ll love working with people like that!

4. Adopt an advisor mindset.

You are in a highly respected profession, and people rely on you to spot opportunities, foresee challenges, and guide them through the twists and turns of life and business. By advising clients and partnering with them throughout their journey you are integral to their success, and this is very rewarding work.

5. Interesting and varied work.

We offer stimulating and fulfilling work across a varied client base and numerous industries. Our teams work holistically across our service lines so you can cross-skill, upskill, and turbo-charge your career.

6. Work with impressive clients.

You won’t believe who some of our clients are! We offer senior staff autonomy and the ability to work directly with client-side decision makers and business owners.

7. Stand out from the crowd.

While we are big enough to offer considerable professional challenges, we are small enough that you will get opportunities to stand out. Your achievements and contributions will be noticed and rewarded.

8. Build your client base.

We provide tangible support in building your client base, including mentoring from our Partners (we have a very low Partner to staff ratio of about 1:10), assistance in building your profile as a thought leader, and providing the necessary soft skills training.

9. Create the career of your dreams.

We love it when people are ambitious. Whether it’s becoming a subject matter expert, leading a team, or a pathway to Partnership, we will work with you to define your goals and get there.
