The search begins for Britain’s Top Tradesperson 2016

The competition launches on 9th May, and previous winners have included plumbers, joiners and electricians. Do you have what it takes to stand up for electricians across the nation to ensure this year’s winner works in your field?

Not only will this year’s worthy winner carry the title of Britain’s Top Tradesperson to transform their business – but they will also win the keys to a brand new Toyota vehicle worth £32,000 (OTR) with all the gadgets they need.

Last year, Darren Lawton, an electrician from Newcastle, walked away with the crown after fighting off worthy competition from thousands of entrants. He wowed a judging panel with his passion and dedication to his trade. His entrepreneurial spirit, attention to detail and passion for customer service also stood out amongst the finalists.  He says it has had an amazing impact on his business, bringing him new customers and filling his diary for months ahead.

Darren commented. ‘Holding the title has been a great endorsement for me and has helped me to secure more customers. The experience has been brilliant, I would definitely encourage other tradespeople to enter and give it a go, there’s nothing to lose and a lot to gain!’

The Britain’s Top Tradesperson Award is given to those who can prove they excel in their trade. Maybe you’ve just started your own company, or perhaps you have taken a course to upgrade your skill-set, or you are on social media and really engage with your customers? You may have completed a complex job for someone, or you run your business with customers in mind, by offering free quotes or on a no-fix, no-fee basis. No matter the reason, you have until 5th June 2016, to put your case forward and enter.

Entries to BTT are open until 5th June 2016, with regional finalists going head-to-head later that month. The national final will be in July, with the overall winner being named Britain’s Top Tradesperson 2016.

To enter you can go into any Screwfix store or go to where you can also find further details of the competition.
