Greater Manchester firm HURST has been shortlisted for two accolades at the 2017 British Accountancy Awards.
HURST, which has offices in Manchester and Stockport, is in the running for the audit team of the year prize and corporate finance executive Lauren Roberts is a finalist for the rising star award.
Lauren, 26, pictured, won a similar accolade earlier this year at the annual ICAEW Manchester Accountancy and Finance Excellence Awards.
She joined HURST Corporate Finance in 2013 and advises on the sale of owner-managed businesses. She also co-ordinates many of HURST’s charity fundraising activities.
HURST’s audit team forms part of the firm’s business services division, which is led by partner Mike Jackson.
"To be on the shortlist in two categories at these prestigious awards is testament to the strength of the firm and our people"
The team has enjoyed a record year, winning dozens of new clients across the north west. Alongside this, it has improved efficiency through technological innovation, including a new client portal.
HURST chief executive Tim Potter said: “The audit team has had a stellar year, and its success has helped other departments to grow by strengthening the firm’s overall client base.
“Lauren has already been honoured regionally as a rising star in her field and now her achievements are gaining recognition at a national level.
“To be on the shortlist in two categories at these prestigious awards is testament to the strength of the firm and our people.”
The awards ceremony will take place on Friday, October 13 at The London Hilton, Park Lane.
