She said: “Mitchell Charlesworth has a strong reputation for the attention to detail that is given to each client and the high level of involvement of the partners in each engagement. I was in a senior role before, so I was attracted by the step to manager and the opportunities that come with the position.

“Working in audit is something I’ve always enjoyed because you can add value and integrity to an organisation’s process. It also offers the chance to give advice to clients about regulations, systems and a range of other operational and commercial issues, which I find interesting. Every day is different and already I’ve had the opportunity to see how things are done at Mitchell Charlesworth and how I can use my previous experience to add value to the team.

“So far I’ve been involved in tendering alongside the partners, which is an area that I have been looking forward to becoming involved with. I’m also looking forward to the other challenges that come my way, whether that’s in growing the business or servicing the existing client base to the high standards already set by my colleagues.”

Alison Buckley, partner at Mitchell Charlesworth, said Ms Ige had already become a valuable member of the Manchester team.

“Adunola brings with her a wealth of experience in audit that will be an asset to Mitchell Charlesworth,” she said. “Already she is proving to be an excellent manager and has taken the lead on several tendering projects so far. I have no doubt that she will play a vital part in the future of the firm as she continues to offer her expertise to our clients.”
