The company’s Newcastle and Darlington offices have welcomed the new members of staff who will be working with a range of regional SMEs and not-for-profit organisations.

Fawziyah said: “As a local firm, helping owner managed businesses within a national network I’m excited about the opportunities this new role brings. I’ve been made to feel very welcome from the get go so it’s an exciting opportunity for me.”
Leo has an honours degree and a Graduate Diploma in Finance Business and Accounting from Newcastle University and is also working towards his ACA qualification.
Leo said: “I’m thrilled to have joined the Haines Watts team. The company offers exceptional opportunities to learn and grow as a professional as they give you real responsibilities and support from the start. My colleagues have been so friendly and I’m learning a huge amount already.”
