Trust A Trader’s Ross Angell to Judge the 2016 On The Tools Awards

By 16th September 2016TrustATrader Blog

At Trust A Trader, we are proud to promote excellence within the industries that we represent. It is, therefore, our great pleasure that our Sales Manager, Ross Angell, has been selected to join the elite panel of judges at this year’s On The Tools Awards.

Ross Angell is no stranger to the construction trade, having worked as a carpenter for eight years before deciding to join Trust A Trader’s team after an unforgiving winter working on a barn conversion in Cornwall. Despite his move from hands-on construction, Ross is still passionate about the customer’s right to find traders they can rely on. As Sales Manager, Ross is responsible for ensuring that all new traders wishing to be listed in Trust A Trader’s directory meet the company’s high standards, enabling prospective customers to select traders they can rely on through choice, and not necessity.

On The Tools is the UK’s largest online construction community, created in 2014 to address the need for effective recruitment within the construction industry. In the 2 years since its inception, On The Tools has amassed over 700,000 followers across a range of digital media channels. While providing tradespeople with access to a unique online community, On The Tools also encourages high standards across the trade industry. The inaugural “On The Tools Awards”, sponsored by Jewson, will celebrate the outstanding contributions of construction workers, sub-contractors, tools and equipment manufacturers and construction companies across the UK.

Judged by Ross and five other industry leaders, with 33 awards created to recognise every element of the industry, the Awards hope to attract a range of entrants, from sole traders and local companies to major construction firms. After the final deadline for entries, Ross and the rest of the panel will create a shortlist of nominees. Some categories will be put to the public vote, while others will be decided by the panel, with the winners to be announced at the Emirates Stadium on 11th November.

Ross says: “Working daily to find traders that our customers can trust, it is a great honour for me to be invited to judge these Awards. The On The Tools Awards promises to be a fantastic event and will help to continue to raise standards of safety, quality and value and promote excellence within the world of construction; standards which I and all of the team at Trust A Trader work so hard to endorse.”
