We’ve named the construction industry’s top young talent

To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, we’ve announced the shortlist for our 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.

David Fenton, Jewson Marketing Director said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the calibre of entries, which really show the enthusiasm and talent of young construction tradespeople. The success proves what we’ve known all along: there is some remarkable skill and passion in the industry. Selecting a winner won’t be easy.”

The winner will be announced on 24th March on our Facebook page.

A big well done to all of the finalists!
