What is the UK’s toughest trade?

Published:  21 January, 2019

A competition is running once again to find out which is the toughest trade in the UK – will plucky plasterers be usurped?

Swarfega is hosting the Toughest Trade competition for the second year in a row. Across January and February, tradespeople will be challenged to post a picture of themselves or a colleague battling their toughest task on their Facebook or Twitter page with the hashtag #ToughestTrade and a short reason why their trade should win 2019’s accolade.

At the end of January, using its Tough-O-Meter, Swarfega will judge each picture and choose the one showing the toughest task.

The winner will be announced on 25 February. They will receive £200 in Amazon vouchers and the trade that the winner represents will be crowned Swarfega’s New Toughest Trade for 2019.

After a hard-fought battle, plasterers won 2018’s title as the title was handed to Russell Ennis, representing plasterers with his mammoth task of plastering a huge vaulted ceiling. But will they be defeated by a rival trade?

The competition launches on 21 January, and the first 10 people to post their toughest task picture will receive a pack of TOUGH by Swarfega Gift Packs. The social media channels are as follows:
