To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, builders’ merchant Jewson has announced the shortlist for its Young Tradesperson of the Year competition.
The award recognises the talent of full and part-time construction professionals and apprentices under the age of 30.
From nearly 150 entries, five finalists have been selected:
- Grant Gibson – Glasgow
- Callum Millington – Warrington
- Carly Doolan – Newcastle
- Jon Wynne – Stockport
- Martin Daly – Glasgow
A panel of industry experts featuring Andy Barrie from online builders community ‘On The Tools’, Liz Male, chair of quality assurer TrustMark, journalist Fiona Russell-Horne and Donna Rostovsky from Osma will now select a winner.
As well as the title of ‘Young Tradesperson of the Year’, the winner will receive a holiday to Barcelona – voted one of the top places for travel in 2015 – plus tickets for a football match at Camp Nou and £1,000 worth of tools.
The winner will be announced on 24 March on the Jewson Facebook page.
