We have a spring in our step with two internal promotions

Charlotte Willmore receives RI Status

Wilder Coe delightfully announced that Charlotte has gained her Responsible Individual (RI) status and is now a Senior Statutory Auditor effective 1 April 2022. Her appointment to RI is a significant professional milestone on her journey to Partnership. Charlotte Willmore began her career in 2010, joining Wilder Coe on a training contract after sixth form. Initially enrolling on our AAT apprentice programme, Charlotte continued onto the ACA qualification to eventually qualify as a Chartered Accountant in October 2015.

After a brief hiatus, Charlotte restarted her Wilder Coe career as Audit Supervisor for several years before a promotion to Audit Manager in 2017.

“The support and close connections I formed, both with colleagues and clients, was the main reason for my decision to return to Wilder Coe,” reveals Charlotte.

“Throwing myself into all aspects of portfolio management, I have been fortunate to encounter many occasions that have helped shape my growth and development.

I was delighted to have the full support of the Partnership Team when applying for RI status. Now is the right time to embrace the challenge of becoming an RI and leading in client assignments.

Alongside this promotion, I am undertaking Wilder Coe’s Partnership Development Programme to further my management and leadership skills. I now have the chance to develop a skillset relative to the whole organisation that differs from the experience gained earlier in my career.

I intend to expand our service offering within the charity and not-for-profit sectors, working closely with Robert Bradman and Mark Saunders. My specialist expertise helps trustees with their governance concerns, accounting and audit requirements or any other areas, which help in their charitable activities.”

Jamie Muirhead achieves internal promotion to Assistant Tax Manager

From 1 April 2022, Jamie will now be an Assistant Tax Manager within Wilder Coe. Furthermore, Jamie is to commence an agreed development plan with the view to reaching Partnership by 2025.

Joining Wilder Coe in August 2018 after graduating with a degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge and a stint in academia, Jamie progressed onto our ACA-CTA joint programme.

Qualifying from the joint programme has allowed Jamie to gain exposure across multiple key business areas to understand client needs more holistically.

His portfolio of clients includes non-UK resident company landlords, high-net-worth individuals, entrepreneurs, the self-employed and owner-managed businesses. His technical tax support across the business helps individuals, organisations and large corporate groups utilise tax reliefs and meet their compliance obligations effectively.

Jamie is “thrilled to take on a larger leadership role within the tax department and embark on the Partnership Development Programme. I have learnt a great deal from my colleagues, both professionally and personally, and look forward to continuing to grow with such a talented, diverse team.” Working closely with Tim Cook, Pauline Hudd and the other Partners, Jamie will expand our tax offering, both in terms of compliance and advisory services. Please support Jamie in his new endeavour and share your good wishes here.
