What it’s like to work with us

We asked one of our recent new starters how they have settled in:

“Having started with the firm on 1st March 2021, I have immediately noticed that Martyn Prowel is unlike any firm I have ever worked in before. Even with limited staff in the office due to current COVID-19 restrictions, the welcome has been overwhelming. I have never had to worry about asking anyone for help with anything from simple office tasks or more complex matters relating to files.

“In the few weeks I have worked at Martyn Prowel, I have had so much support, face-to-face meetings and guidance with my team managers. This has also included my team managers changing their own work schedule to come into the office when they would normally work remotely – just to support me.

“In the short time I have been here, I’m confident it’s the best firm I have ever worked for and I can see why loyalty runs high here.”
