Haines Watts’ surge of appointments and promotions in Scotland
Accountancy and business advisory firm Haines Watts, which has offices in Edinburgh and Kirkcaldy, has celebrated a flurry of appointments and promotions, as they continue to invest in local people across Scotland.
The firm welcomed 38 new appointments in this financial year alone, nine of which are graduates and school leavers. The new starters join across a number of specialist service lines including audit, accounts, tax incentives and reliefs, corporation tax and VAT.
Speaking on her new role as corporate tax trainee, Sophie Glaister said: “I’ve only been here a short while but everyone has been very welcoming so far.
“I’d heard of Haines Watts through family members and knew it was a good place to work. The firm has a great culture and values which I really resonate with.”
The appointments come as the North region offices celebrate a total of 25 internal mid-year promotions, whilst continuing to nurture the next generation of leaders with the start of a new cohort of their accredited talent development programmes.
Six new delegates joined the firm’s eighth annual Leadership Development Programme. Meanwhile, nine team members are currently completing the Managers Skills Programme, and five team members are due to graduate the programme this week.
Group managing partner, Donna Bulmer, said: “We have a lot to celebrate across our North region. Not only are we seeing such talented young people choosing to start their careers here at Haines Watts, but we’re also seeing them progress, reach their goals and even achieve what they might not have thought possible.
“I’m so proud to see our team making strides in their career. Whether it’s their job, a well-deserved promotion, or taking part in our talent development programmes.
“It’s the people who make Haines Watts what it is and I’m proud to see them go from strength to strength.”
