Hamlyn Williams Impact Day - What we love about HW


Niomi Cowling Internal, Talent Acquisition - Hamlyn Williams, join us...

Our teams took part in our Impact Day with the theme of Valentine's.

We have been sharing the love this Valentine’s, with quotes from colleagues across our global teams on what they love about Hamlyn Williams.

Our global impact days focus on the wider impact of everything we do, from advising our partners and customers, to CSR initiatives within the local communities of our offices.

Ahead of Impact Day, we asked the team what they love about HW.... ❤️❤️❤️

1. Sophie Morris

Up first is Sophie Morris, Head of L&D EU & APAC:

“The thing I love most about HW is the people. Even working remotely, I feel a great sense of team spirit, even globally!! Everyone has great ambition and is excited to learn more whether they're in their induction or later in their career, which is so refreshing!”

2. Ricky Byrne

Continuing with Valentine's theme on Day 2 we heard from Ricky Byrne is telling us what he loves about HW, and it's a popular reason for many of our people globally. **International Opportunity**!

"I love the international opportunity offered by the global nature of HW. I fulfilled my ambition to live and work abroad by moving from London to NYC!"

Ricky joined Hamlyn Williams in 2018, starting out in London and moving to New York City soon after to fulfill a life-long ambition to live and work abroad. He is making the most of being an ex-pat and is loving life in New York. Ricky leads our Financial Services Contracts team, alongside our FS Director Gareth Carpenter, and the team is going from strength to strength.

3. Wilfred King

One for football fans! Wilfred King in our Hong Kong team said:
"The cohesion and collaboration among teams fascinates me in HW. For the Hong Kong IT team, we work hard and make some incredible achievements under the brilliant leadership of the team manager Brian. Just like the motto of Liverpool, you will never walk alone, I feel exactly the same in HW."

Teamwork makes the dream work and we are delighted to hear you are so happy in our Hong Kong team lead by James Tan.

4. Bobby Demarco

Bobby Demarco in our San Diego Life Science team said what he loves about Hamlyn Williams is:

"I love the choice of office locations at HW. I always wanted to live on the West Coast (USA), and even during the pandemic I made the move from Boston to San Diego, where I now live and work. The move included an epic road trip across the states, visiting the Grand Canyon, Arches National Park, driving through the Rocky Mountains; it was an incredible trip to start an exciting step in my career."⠀

And what a great start to your career at Hamlyn Williams, Bobby! ❤️ We are so thankful for all your hard work, for inspiring your team, and for making the move and settling into life on a new coast.

5. Andrew Cochlin

And finally, our CFO Andrew Cochlin rounded Valentine's week off with a final message on what he loves about Hamlyn Williams.

"Three things; People, Challenge, Opportunity.

People: The business has brought together a high caliber of professionals working towards the same goal. When you surround yourself with the types of people we have you cannot help but level up yourself.

Challenge: Hamlyn Williams is a highly ambitious company looking to take advantage of opportunities at pace. Planning to manage this ambition and speed of change is challenging and impossible to foresee all risks, opportunities, and eventualities before they arrive. This creates an exciting working environment.

Opportunity: There is a clear and obvious opportunity for Hamlyn Williams to clear the global pandemic and associated economic environment being very well placed to maximise on the investments made in 2020 (new office locations, markets, geographies, hires, and scale). Success and rewards are within our reach."

We couldn't have put it better ourselves Andrew!

Congrats to all the teams for taking part, we hope it was a fun and enjoyable day.
