IRWIN Tools is once again on the lookout for the UK and Ireland’s ‘Ultimate Tradesperson’ with the launch of its yearly ‘Nominate a Tradesperson’ competition.
The company is seeking trade professionals to nominate colleagues or even themselves and share tales of how that person has gone the extra mile with their work, no matter how big or small the task.
Throughout the world, tradespeople rely on IRWIN for high quality performance on jobs and now the firm is celebrating the best of the UK and Ireland.
The winning application will receive £5,000 to help build their business, a paid apprentice for the whole of next year and a range of IRWIN products, including VISE-GRIP cutting pliers, WeldTec Circular Saw blades and IRWIN’s new Pro Comfort Screwdrivers.
The winner is set to be confirmed at the Build Show on October 18 and 19 at Birmingham’s NEC and before this year’s successful candidate is revealed, there will be a monthly winner who will receive a prize package comprising of IRWIN tools up to the value of £660, along with an all-expenses paid trip to the Build Show to the value of £850.
IRWIN’s Senior Brand Activation Manager, Amber Popowicz, commented: “We established Nominate a Tradesperson to find tradespeople who, through their skills and dedication, make a real difference.
“This could be a tradesperson who has shown their commitment to instilling their skills in the younger generation by working with apprentices or someone who always goes above and beyond to deliver exceptional client service.”
Last year’s winner was Stacey Greenwell, from Stoke-on-Trent who explained that she never dreamt of picking up such an award when she started her career 15 years ago.
Greenwell said: “I started buying uninhabitable derelict properties and renovating them to provide affordable housing to help my local town.
“It’s been such an experience to have won and it’s been great to have been recognised by such a long-standing company.”
