1960 s Worthing Exterior Close Up BGA Ref 30-3294Worthing Trustee and Investment Office opens in 1967, just a year or so before Martins Bank combines the businesses of all of its regional Trustee offices into Martins Bank Trust Company Limited. The new Office opens next door to our existing Worthing Branch, and we are currently looking for an image. In the meantime we will all have to imagine a shiny new office in one of the shop units seen here, either side of our Branch! Martins Bank Magazine does not visit Worthing Trustee, and we have only one image for our Staff Gallery below. If you can help with images or memories of working at this office, please do get in touch with us at the usual address gutinfo@btinternet.com.


Martins Bank has a policy of looking first to its own experienced Staff to fill vancaies, before recruiting from outside the Business. When Mr B L Skiming is appointed Manager of Worthing Trust Company in 1968, he has already accumulated twenty-four years with the Bank, the last fifteen or so working in Trustee and Investment departments. In 1953 after a five year tour of Branches in the Liverpool District, he joins Liverpool Trustee. Ten years later he moves into the Northern District, to take up a post at Kendal Trustee. Two years after that he is appointed Pro Manager, the first step on the Management ladder. He moves to Worthing in 1967, with another promotion, this time to Trust Controller. His appointment as Manager of Worthing Trust Company comes early in 1968.
