What it’s like to work here
Three things make working at BKL what it is: variety, expertise and togetherness.
We actively look to work with people and enterprises that think in new ways, explore new opportunities and change things for the better. We act as a catalyst of change for them. Our clients are entrepreneurs, owner managers and high net worth individuals; they range from small sole traders to large organisations with turnovers approaching £100 million; from charities to partnerships, to corporate groups.
This kind of variety brings two outstanding benefits. Firstly, it keeps things fresh. We’re constantly confronted by the new. Secondly, we’re at the heart of the action. We build real, longer-term relationships with the people that are making key decisions. Because of the kind of consultancy we’ve become, we are in the privileged position of being able to play a role in their decisions.
A large proportion of our turnover comes from established clients that have been with us for over ten years. Most new work comes to us through word of mouth. These things don’t happen by chance. We set and maintain extraordinarily high standards of excellence.
Whatever role you take up at BKL, at whatever level, you’ll find we care about your continued learning and development. We’ll provide courses on audit, accounts and tax, systems training and IT delivered by our own experts and the best external practitioners.
Examples of how you can gain expertise with us:
- Lunchtime and evening workshops with our tax specialists
- Training in business development, leadership and knowledge sharing skills with Kaplan
- Resources for independent learning, with free subscriptions to webinar and technical video providers
- Support on courses for all stages of your career, including the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship, Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship and the Chartered Director qualification from the Institute of Directors
As we grow as people and as a business, we find ways to help our clients grow too. Long term, everyone’s success and happiness are based on it.
We place immense value on the power of the collective mind. Not only is working together more effective, it’s also more rewarding.
We continue to grow but many of our people have been with us for ten years or more. Two of those who made partner in recent years joined as trainees. We collaborate. We look out for each other. We work hard for each other. We share knowledge. We share values.
Ask members of the firm what they most like about working with us and the first thing that many will say is that it feels as much like a family as a business; people genuinely care, they take an interest.
