The hunt is on for the best that British plumbing and heating has to offer, with a brand new Toyota for the winner of Britain’s Top Tradesperson 2017?

Go on, admit it…it’s crossed your mind. It could be you, it could be a co-worker, it could be the tradesman that trained you. Britain’s Top Tradesperson is out there, and Screwfix is once again on a mission to find them.

The winner of Britain’s Top Tradesperson 2017 won’t just get the title. They’ll also get the keys to a brand new Toyota Proace or Hilux vehicle worth £32,000 (OTR). Not bad as prizes go.

The entire plumbing and heating industry is represented nationwide in the Britain’s Top Tradesperson competition.

But don’t think for a second that it’s just for plumbers. Previous winners have included bricklayers, plumbers and electricians!


Last year saw third-generation bricklayer Richie Maxwell from Scotland taking home the title. Richie came out on top from more than 6,000 entrants. Here’s what he had to say about the win:

“Winning this competition has completely transformed my business and brought in more opportunities. There is nothing like Britain’s Top Tradesperson out there so it is nice to get some well-deserved recognition and give my business the seal of approval it deserves. I would definitely encourage other tradespeople to enter, there’s nothing to lose and a lot to gain!”


Graham Smith, Screwfix Marketing Director, had this to say:

“We continue to host this competition year after year to celebrate successful tradespeople from all across the UK that deliver quality work without gaining recognition they deserve. In the eighth year of this highly selective competition, tradespeople from all different trades meet up to share ideas and insights into the field and industry trends. We continue to get more quality applicants and we’re looking forward to meeting this year’s successful regional finalists. To reward the ongoing hard work and dedication to their trade, this year’s national winner will receive a new Toyota vehicle from the All New Toyota Hilux or All New Toyota PROACE ranges and the title of Britain’s Top Tradesperson 2017.”


So what are you waiting for? Head down to your nearest Screwfix store to enter or just go to and find out more. We’ll be rooting for you!
