There are also great prizes for two runners-up, including a £1,500 cash prize, a state-of-the-art toolkit and a Certificate of Commendation.
Finalists will not only have good technical skills, but also be role models for others in the industry. Eligible applicants will have completed their AM2 since April 2022.
The winners’ employer will be awarded a year’s subscription to the BSI library and a year-long licence for Electrical OM software, as well as increased company profile, press coverage, and two VIP tickets to the 2024 ECA Awards dinner.
The runner-up’s employers will also be awarded a year-long Electrical OM licence, increased company profile and press coverage.
Last year’s winner, Veronica Jennings of Imtech Engineering Services, went on a study trip to Austria with manufacturer ZG Lighting. Since winning the award, she has seen her career go from strength to strength in just a matter of months.
Veronica comments, “Since receiving the ECA Edmundson Apprentice of the Year Award, I’ve been working hard on sites to move up in the company. Imtech has also invited me to join its core ED&I group, which focuses on supporting the next generation and taking positive steps in the workplace.
“I wish this year’s entrants the best of luck, and strongly encourage any electrical business with one or more bright sparks to enter.”
