Meet Sophie Hamlet.

Sophie Hamlet is a qualified accountant and accomplished auditor and trust accountant, with a dedication to giving back to the arts, not-for-profit and charitable sectors. Currently serving as an Audit Manager at Grant Thornton UK LLP, she provides specialised financial oversight and advisory services to her clients.

Mark had the pleasure of creating Sophie's fantasy cultural year and taking her back to Paris as she enjoyed it so much when she visited at age 14. Mark should really set up a travel agency to make these trips real!

After earning her ACA qualification, Sophie gained substantial experience auditing both corporate and not-for-profit entities. Her career advanced further when she took on the role of Technical Manager, where she was responsible for delivering internal training on auditing and financial reporting requirements. This role underscored her commitment to maintaining the highest standards of financial integrity and transparency.

At Grant Thornton UK LLP, Sophie is part of a global network that spans 135 countries and employs 58,000 people. The firm is renowned for its ability to combine global scale with local insight, providing clients with comprehensive assurance, tax, and advisory services. In her capacity as Audit Manager, Sophie exemplifies the firm's ethos of going beyond business as usual, fostering strong relationships, and delivering proactive insights.

Sophie's passion for the arts and culture sector is reflected in her volunteer work, where she contributes her financial expertise to several organisations. She serves as a Trustee for Baseless Fabric Theatre, Vice Chair and Head of the Finance Committee for Greenwich Theatre, and Trustee for Total Insight Theatre. These roles allow her to combine her professional skills with her personal passion for supporting the arts, ensuring these organisations thrive financially and operationally.

Sophie Hamlet's career is a testament to her dedication to people, the not-for-profit sector, and the arts. Her work continues to inspire trust and integrity in the markets she serves, contributing to sustainable growth and positive progress.
