Screwfix announces top 10 for Trade Apprentice Final 2023


Screwfix has chosen 10 apprentices to go head-to-head in the Screwfix Trade Apprentice 2023. The awards are to take place on 2 and 3 May.

Out of the 10 apprentices, there are four aspiring plumbers and gas engineers: Katie, 23, from Burscough, Sophie, 19, from Norwich, Kester, 25, from Plymouth and Kieran 19, from Coventry.

According to a statement, the national award aims to highlight the hard work and dedication of trade apprentices across the UK and Ireland, with the champion receiving a career-boosting £10,000 trade bundle made-up of tools, tech and training.

During the final, the ten apprentices will have the opportunity to share their apprentice journey and career aspirations with a panel of industry experts. The panel includes representatives from Screwfix, the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering, Federation of Master Builders, National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting and the winner of Screwfix Top Tradesperson 2022, Toby Peacock.

Jack Wallace, marketing director for Screwfix, is to also join the panel to meet the finalists and crown the winner. He said: “The annual Screwfix Trade Apprentice award is part of our commitment to recognise and reward the future champions of the trade, and in telling their stories, we hope to shine a light on the fantastic work completed by apprentices, day in, day out. Through this award, we also hope to inspire others to start a career in the trade given the countless opportunities the construction industry has to offer.”
