Haines Watts is for... the NEXT Generation! At Haines Watts we are very passionate about our communities and inspiring the next generation, that’s why we recently announced our National Sponsorship of the Reach Next Generation Summit. The first ever summit took place on the 26th of June at DLD College in London but was also broadcast live over YouTube. This pioneering event was the brainchild of Sky Sports Anchor and Reach Founder Sarah Stirk and was aimed at young girls aged 11-14. It was a great success with high-achieving women such as Stephanie Boyce, president of the Law Society, Alison Edgar MBE, Best-selling Author and Wanita Bardouille, Creative Services Director at Ralph Lauren, taking centre stage to pass on their advice and experience to an eager crowd. The purpose of the event was to advise, inform and empower those attending or watching, more events will hopefully take place around the country and the aim is to enable young people to handle societal pressures. The summits also focus on crucial issues around diversity and inclusion.

Great team, good culture of teamwork and collaboration, flexible working, good benefit options.


Working from home means fewer face-to-face interactions especially in the pandemic but no other cons really.
