    I have been working at Haines Watts full-time (Less than a year)


    An environment that challenges the 'norm' but one that enables people to thrive. A forward-thinking organisation making a difference that does what it says.


    Struggling to identify anything. The coffee machine is a little complicated!

    Keep doing what you're doing and keep your people at the centre of everything you do.
