Charlotte Corlett

Browne Craine & Co (“Browne Craine”) audit manager, Charlotte Corlett, has successfully qualified as a certified internal auditor (“CIA”). Charlotte has been studying for the qualification with the aim of developing her internal audit expertise and she recently passed the requisite exam to qualify as a CIA.

Certified Internal Auditor is a globally-recognised qualification that provides a firm foundation for a career in internal auditing. Charlotte was able to take the fast track route through the ACCA.

“I’m so pleased to have passed the exam,” said Charlotte. “Although my job role won’t change, being a qualified CIA is proof I have the knowledge and expertise of internal audit. Gaining the CIA qualification means I now have access to a new network of contacts and enhanced skills in areas such as risk control, management and information flows which will enable us to help our clients in all areas of their business. Working, studying and trying to balance your personal life can be very difficult so it makes becoming a CIA that little bit more special.”

Charlotte joined Browne Craine in March 2016 and is responsible for liaising with clients and managing audit work from the start of the audit process to the signing of the accounts. Specialising in the audit of groups, charities, pensions and investment property, Charlotte leads a number of audit engagements, ranging from small charities through to large group audits. Charlotte trained as an Accountant with the ACCA professional body and qualified in 2012. She also has a wide knowledge and experience of local Government and trading companies.

“Congratulations to Charlotte on gaining her CIA qualification,” commented Lynsey Smith, director at Browne Craine. “It isn’t an easy qualification to gain and it requires a lot of dedication and hard work in both the individual’s work and personal time. Charlotte’s CIA qualification means we can offer new services and continue to grow our audit portfolio.”
