Friday drinks

  • monthly events
  • ski trip
  • team celebratory parties and lunches
  • community days

We also embrace fun and play as essential to innovation and creativity. At Watson Young, we carve out opportunities for our team to ‘play’, whether this is a few hits on our table tennis table or bringing pets to work.

We also offer our team ‘play days’ in addition to annual leave. They can spend time doing something that they love. We understand that play creates the space for the best creative ideas.  

We work hard. We create even harder. We care. We grow. We enjoy.

We are one Watson Young.
