LDB team in action

Get valuable, hands-on experience

For more than 20 years the LDB graduate program has developed well-rounded Chartered Accountants through our commitment to professional development. Our graduates will get the opportunity to work with a range of clients including ASX listed entities; clients based in Silicon Valley, Japan and London; clients across the manufacturing, hospitality, medical, and property development sectors; as well as tech start-ups and gamers. At LDB, you’ll get hands-on experience and exposure to our large and varied client base. 

Technology

Embrace a modern workplace

Our open door policy gives you the opportunity to work directly with managers and partners at LDB as we service a diverse client base. Our client service comes first and we proactively engage with them at the LDB office, at the clients’ premises, and digitally via technology. To meet the ever-changing needs of our clients and modern technology, we have embraced cloud accounting and a paperless workplace. 

The LDB partners

Join a positive workplace culture

Located a 3-minute walk from Blackburn train station and just a 20-minute drive from the CBD, our modern offices accommodate more than 70 staff. As a large multi-disciplined firm with a specialised focus on accounting and advisory, superannuation, audit, wealth solutions and property, we pride ourselves on our culture and work hard to maintain it. From providing a free daily lunch to a firm-wide income protection insurance policy, to our monthly charity initiative on casual clothes day, and team activities or birthday celebrations, we recognise that if you are going to spend half your waking hours with your work family then it should be an enjoyable experience.

What does a business need to consider when engaging an employee versus a contractor?

Access training and professional development

To enrich your professional development, we have structured our graduate program to ensure you gain a deeper understanding of LDB’s entire business. With the assistance of your graduate mentor, we will organise secondments to give you the opportunity to work across all areas of our firm. Our designated Chartered Accountant coordinator will also assist you as you undertake the program, helping you enrol in each subject and coordinate the paid study leave and financial support we offer as we sponsor you through the program.
