A FIRM specialising in human resources and employment law is keeping it in the family with its latest appointment.
Gavin Howarth (second right) has joined The Howarth Partnership Ltd, based at Cleckheaton, where he joins his father Andy (right), who is managing director, and mother Helen (left), who is finance director. Completing the team is business development director Tracey Hopkins (also pictured).
Gavin, a former pupil of Heckmondwike Grammar School, read law at Leeds University before studying at the city’s BPP law school. He was offered a training contract with Hammonds Solicitors in Leeds, but after successfully qualifying as a solicitor chose to join the family business.
Said Gavin: “The idea behind me coming into the family business is to work alongside my dad and the other members of the team in growing and developing the organisation.
“My dad has built up a great relationship with clients – particularly in Huddersfield where he worked for many years as an operational detective and has a real soft spot for the town.”
Tracey joined the business from school and recently graduated from Huddersfield University as a member of the Chartered Institute of Personal Development.
