Cumberland Chairman: Sophie Graham ACA
Saint & Co, Chartered Accountants
[email protected]

Sophie is a qualified ICAEW Chartered Accountant and works as a senior manager at Saint & Co in Carlisle. Her work involves working with charities, academies and industrial companies around Cumbria and South West Scotland. She carries out audits for Limited Companies, Charities, Academies and professional services firms such as solicitors.

Sophie’s aim is to continue to work on the efforts of the past few years and to get more members within the Cumberland district involved both socially and with courses.

About the society

The society is currently made up of 6 local accountants, but we are hoping to recruit further members from a wider range of firms and also to have representation from some accountants in industry.

We meet 6 times a year in Carlisle to plan events, organise courses programmes, obtain updates from the ICAEW and pass feedback to our local ICAEW Council Member and Regional Directors.

The society also support all events run by Carlisle Futures and Penrith Futures which allow local young professionals to network with other professionals in their area. Follow @CarlisleFutures for further event details and we will most likely see you at one soon.
