The search is now on for leading omnichannel retailer Screwfix, to discover the best and brightest trade apprentices across the UK and Ireland.  Applications are now open for Screwfix Trade Apprentice 2023, with the entry period closing on Sunday 19th February.

The competition is back for its 9th year and coincides with National Apprenticeship Week, shining a light on the positive impact that apprenticeships make to individuals, businesses and the wider economy.

The Screwfix Trade Apprentice 2023 champion will receive the coveted title and a career-boosting trade bundle worth £10,000, including £5,000 of tools, a £3,000 training budget, and £2,000 worth of technology - everything a future tradesperson may need to start up their own business. What’s more, the champion’s college will receive £2,000 worth of Screwfix vouchers to spend on workshop equipment, helping to provide outstanding services for tomorrow’s trade professionals.

Alex Avis, 26 from Nottingham, won the Screwfix Trade Apprentice title in 2022. An apprentice in carpentry and joinery, Alex switched career from an office to a building site and his passion for the industry and the people working in it came across loud and clear. 

He said: “Winning Screwfix Trade Apprentice has provided me with a fantastic platform to share my positive experiences working in the trade. While the tools, tech and training prize has really helped me towards my ambition of running my own business. It’s a once in a lifetime experience and I highly recommend applying.” 

Jack Wallace, Marketing Director at Screwfix said: “We are incredibly excited to bring back Screwfix Trade Apprentice for 2023, as we search for exciting new talent in the industry. Every year we meet apprentices who are passionate, dedicated and absolutely committed to delivering the highest standard of work in their chosen trade and I’m sure this year will be no different. 

“I’m looking to forward to seeing the applications and would encourage those with passion, dedication and that ‘go above and beyond’ to apply. We’ve seen first-hand the massive difference this accolade and the prize bundle can make to a trade apprentice’s career. We can’t wait to crown our 2023 champion!” 

Entry to Screwfix Trade Apprentice 2023 is completely free and open to all apprentices who are enrolled at college, either have a part-time placement with an employer or are a full-time college student. Apprentices can apply themselves or be nominated by their college or employer. All applicants must be over the age of 16.
