Apprentice wins Regional Recognition

Duffield Building Services are proud to announce that Jack Edwards, one of our 4 apprentices, has just been awarded Yorkshire and Trent’s ‘Apprentice of the Year’ in the Federation of Master Builders’ (FMB) Master Builder Awards 2019 held at a black-tie event in Manchester. As part of the Master Builder Awards, the FMB carries out a nationwide search to find the building industry’s best apprentices.

Nigel Williams, Director says ‘Jack operates independently like someone who has 10+ years of craft experience. His range of skills is very impressive for someone who is still only 20. He now routinely constructs timber roofs, creates stud partition walls and joisted floors.

He is valued by all of our other tradesmen to deliver an excellent quality job, and nobody questions whether he is capable to complete a task. He is a very highly valued member of the DBS team.’

As a regional winner, Jack will now go up against other winning apprentices from around the UK with a chance to claim the coveted national Apprentice 2019 crown

The national ceremony will be held at the Intercontinental Hotel, Park Lane, London on 20th September and we wish him well.
