NORTH-WEST FIRM Mitchell Charlesworth has revamped its education division to deal with the needs of an emerging market in free schools, studio schools and academies.
The division will comprise of three partners: Philip Griffiths (pictured), Paul Booth and David Antonia. They will be supported by a core of ten people across disciplines such as VAT and payroll. A ‘responsible officer’ service has also been set up. The responsible officer provides independent oversight to the financial affairs of academies.
It comes after a collection of new contract wins including the newly formed free schools Harmonize Academy in Anfield, and Sandymoor in Runcorn.
Griffiths said: “Our role is to ensure they manage these responsibilities efficiently, effectively and with due diligence. We also want to provide specialist business advice to encourage sustained growth.”
