It’s back! Talented tradespeople from across the UK and Ireland can now apply for the Screwfix Top Tradesperson 2022 award, and the chance to be crowned the champion of the trade.

Only one trade person will walk away with the coveted title and an incredible 'trade bundle' worth £20,000/€20,000, comprising of tech, tools, and training to take their already successful career to the next level.
Dan Lloyd, the 2021 winner and currently holding the title, said: “My colleague encouraged me to apply for the award and when I entered, I hoped I had a chance at winning, but I had to pinch myself when my name was announced.
“Going through the interview stages and meeting different people across different trades was great. Whether it was their work in the community or what they have done to better their own careers, all the finalists were worthy of the title, but to say I was thrilled to be crowned would be an understatement.
“Since winning, I have driven my business forward and the prize has meant we have been able to invest in our team and equipment without detriment to our own finances. It has been amazing.”
Jack Wallace, Marketing Director at Screwfix, commented: “Our nations tradespeople are true professionals and work incredibly hard day in, day out.

“In crowning a winner, we look for an individual who not only goes above and beyond for their customers, but also invests in the future of the trade and acts as an ambassador for the construction industry.
