Here’s what some of our team have to say about working at Mitchell and Urwin:

Mitchell and Urwin is the best company I have ever worked for in terms of getting paid on time, every time. I never have to worry about money. I feel secure.

Mitchell and Urwin is friendly. We’re all on the same side. There’s a family feel to it.

Richard’s not on the trowel any more, but he knows what it’s like for us. I respect that.

I love my job!

Great lads to work with, good crack.

I arrived in the UK with £90 and a suitcase, a wife and child to support. I’ve just bought my own house thanks to this job.

Demanding, but fair. Can’t ask for more than that.

If you ever have an issue you can call Richard – the company boss – if you need to. He is happy to give out his mobile number. You can’t get any higher than that. It’s great to have that level of access.

I love the freedom my job gives me.

Everyday is different.
