People Profile

Marlene Howels

Commercial Solicitor

“I work within our legal team, supporting commercial agreements. This includes IT contracts, terms and condition of sales and supply and service agreements. I’m also responsible for general commercial matters such as data protection and intellectual property issues. I help the business to achieve its goals in a compliant and legal way by enabling project teams to deliver their projects on time.

In the past, I’ve only worked at private law firms. The main difference at Screwfix is that I now get involved at the beginning of a project and see how my involvement impacts on its success. In private practice you generally only work on discreet matters and once they are completed your involvement ends.

Screwfix has a “can do” attitude, always striving to meet new challenges. It’s a successful business which clearly has ambitions to grow in local and international markets – which is exciting to be part of.”
