Calling all tradesmen

Published:  23 August, 2016

Are you an electrician, builder, technician or plumber? Would you like to win £250,000, a car, a motorbike, a boat and a whole lot of other goodies? Then the UK Worker of the Year competition is just what you are looking for.

The competition, organised by Dickies this year in association with ASDA and HONDA UK, is offering a range of amazing prizes. In addition to the opportunity of winning £250,000, there is a Honda Jazz car, a Honda Crosstourer 1200cc motorbike, a Honda Marine Rib boat, a year’s free shopping at ASDA, a luxury holiday and that’s just for the winner. There are more prizes available to our finalists, and spot prizes along the way.

Gary Barak, the event promoter, said: “This competition is to demonstrate pride in the British workforce, and is open to everyone, regardless of whether you work on the shop floor or are a chief executive.”
