The popularity of offshore outsourcing has exploded with foreign companies. Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) is the process of setting up a remote, offshore workforce just as if they were working within the company’s in-country office.

The BPO industry alone is expected to reach a market size of $405.6 billion by 2027, and it has set its sights firmly on the Philippines. So as a graduate, or would-be graduate in the Philippines, how do you become part of this industry?

Huge opportunities in the Philippines

The Business Process Outsourcing market heavily favours the Philippines, as the English language ability, beautiful culture, incredible work ethic and abilities of the Filipino people make them model employees. This offers a great opportunity for motivated and talented professionals within the Philippines to put their degrees and qualifications to use in a professional setting.

How it works

  • University graduates/qualified professionals can apply to a BPO firm
  • You will go to work in a physical office, often based in a Freeport Zone
  • The BPO company will provide training for your new position
  • When you graduate from the trainee program, you will work from the same office each day as a professional accountant for a legitimate foreign corporation

Perks of being an outsourced accountant

The perks of being an outsourced accountant are huge for a university graduate or qualified professional. Among the other day-to-day benefits of being part of a vibrant team, you will receive:

  • Well-paid work
  • Good working conditions
  • Opportunity to apply your degree in a professional environment
  • Professional development opportunities
  • Chance to build foreign relationships

Hear from outsourced accountants working in the Philippines

At The Back Room, we pride ourselves on having a vibrant team culture, good work-life balance, and comprehensive staff training, as our staff will attest to:

“I am glad to be a part of the promising industry that The Back Room is in. Professionals nowadays are very multidimensional, able to work in a hassle-free and cloud-based environment. This thought lets me envision the innovative and modern accountant that I want to be at The Back Room.” – Hannah Antonio, Junior Accountant

“There are a lot of opportunities in different sectors for a recent CPA graduate like me. The usual advice is to start getting your experience as an auditor. However, in the midst of ever-developing technology and globalisation, the BPO industry started booming. Starting my career here, I now realise that it’s better to deepen your accounting knowledge first before you can confidently audit financials or teach students.” – Mary Rose Santos, Junior Accountant.

“What I enjoy the most about my work is the sense of camaraderie between my colleagues and the balance between work and life. Some were scared silly with the concept of the corporate world and its vicious Machiavellian craft. At least, that’s how it would be with most corporate settings. But not in The Back Room, we are a team in the purest sense. I’ve always liked how the seniors are always there, ready to give a helping hand.” – John Matias, Junior Accountant.
