We would like to congratulate Helen Rosser and Dr Jake Irwin on 10 years of investigations with Hawkins, and thank Jo Sears on 20 years of invaluable support.
Helen Rosser is a Senior Associate in our London Office and has been investigating fire incident and arson cases for 10 years with Hawkins. Helen was responsible for setting up a validated method for flash burning to clothing and represented the Forensic Science Service in Europe as Chair of the European Network of Forensic Science Institutes (ENFSI) Expert Working Group in Fire and Explosion.

Dr Jake Irwin is a Principal Associate and has been Regional
Manager of Hawkins’ Birmingham Office since October 2021. He has investigated chemical and post-lost
contamination incidents as well as fires for 10 years with Hawkins. He has
spoken at numerous events on Hawkins’ behalf, including the 2022 British Damage
Management Association Conference.

Jo Sears has spent 20 years working closely with Hawkins’
Cambridge Office colleagues, including the board, as a secretary and personal
assistant to previous Managing Director, Andrew Moncrieff. Her colleagues have described
her efficiency and positivity as akin to Mary Poppins’ — “practically
perfect in every way.” We are delighted that she has reached 20 years with Hawkins
and could not be more grateful for the work she has done supporting us.

We take this time to thank Helen, Jake and Jo for all their dedication and effort, which have helped in decades’ worth of investigations.
