BDO delivers high quality audits to a range of UK and International organisations. Therefore, maximizing secondment opportunities between BDO Saudi people and the International network are an important consideration. The total number of Country specialist has been increased to 18 by the addition of the following country/regions: Southern Africa, Francophone Africa, Switzerland, Ireland, Central Europe and the splitting of the US/Canada liaison between two Country specialists.
The main objective of a Country Specialist or, in some cases, joint Country specialists is to ensure excellent client service, and also identify and implement a manageable number of initiatives and projects, stream and sector centric, which will identify and open up commercial relationships for both firms with the prospects of finding fee generative clients and projects in the short to medium terms.
Country specialist (known as CCO’s) are tasked to increase international referral levels by increasing focus and understanding of sector strengths in order to maximise on revenue growth opportunities on what are the most important Member Firm relationships for BDO UK.
CCO’s are asked to actively market on a joint basis to targets who require a seamless International service and to improve the management of audit/project risks by enhancing our understanding of a Member Firm's approach, strengths/weaknesses and international experience.
CCOs help to achieve the successful implementation of the agreed strategic secondments with the Member Firm in their country/region, and to oversee the secondment process with respect to their inward/outward secondees.
