Heating engineers John Cruickshank, pictured, Anthony Sanders, Ross Coen and Michael Goodall have qualified to compete against six other top finalists to become the Screwfix Top Tradesperson 2023.
Screwfix Top Tradesperson attracted more than 1,000 applications this year, with just 10 making the final stage. The final takes place at Screwfix LIVE this week, where the four heating engineers will have the chance to highlight their professionalism, dedication and commitment to the trade in front of a panel of industry experts.
The panel includes representatives from the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE), the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC), and Screwfix Top Tradesperson 2022 champion, Toby Peacock.
The Screwfix Top Tradesperson will receive a trade bundle of tech, tools and training worth £20,000, while earning themselves a spot in the Screwfix Top Tradesperson Hall of Fame.

Our Screwfix Top Tradesperson competition shines a light on inspirational tradespeople who go above and beyond for their customers, their colleagues, and the next generation of tradespeople, day in, day out.”
