Sarah Flear


An Audits and Accounts Partner located in our Nottingham office, Sarah heads up the Audit and Compliance team, as well as the Education and Charity team.

Sarah is particularly devoted to working closely with the local market and her community, with this underpinning much of her day-to-day role. She has gained both experience and expertise over the years, consolidating these to support a broad understanding of different sectors and scenarios that allows her to view issues in a unique way. This therefore means that clients can expect to receive bespoke, well-informed, and solution-based advice.

Having led PKF Smith Cooper’s specialist schools and academies team since 2010, Sarah has steered the firm to become the leading sector specialism provider in the East Midlands. In addition, Sarah has considerable knowledge relating to manufacturing, engineering, charities, and other not-for-profit organisations.
