At Trust A Trader, we believe in being active members of the trading community, bringing traders and customers together and extolling the virtues of excellent service while discouraging rogue traders. We are, therefore, thrilled that Trust A Trader has been announced as a finalist in 2016’s On The Tools Awards.
On The Tools is the UK’s biggest online community of construction workers, manufacturers and contractors. The organisation was established in 2014 to provide the construction industry with an effective, reliable online recruitment platform; their annual awards were created to celebrate high standards within the industry and to help encourage members of the trading community, from sole traders to large manufacturing companies, to work together to achieve best practice. The Awards feature several categories, from brands and traders, to Apprentice of the Year and, of course, Tradesperson Directory of the Year.
In September, we announced that our sales manager, Ross Angell, had been invited to join On The Tools’ panel of expert judges. Making the shortlist ourselves is an additional bonus and we are very much looking forward to the awards evening on 11th November. Ross, naturally, will not be judging the category for “Online Tradesperson Directory of the Year”!
Trust A Trader’s CEO, Gary McEwen, says: “Since we created Trust A Trader, we have seen the integrity and confidence of our traders continue to grow. Too many sole traders and smaller trade organisations are tarred with the same brush as rogue traders, our job is to help people find traders that they can rely on. The On The Tools Awards celebrate traders based on their quality of service and excellence in the industry, not their size. It is brilliant to see a huge range of traders in the Awards shortlist, from smaller independent companies, to bigger organisations that haven’t lost that personal touch. It is fantastic that Trust A Trader has been shortlisted and, whatever the outcome, we will continue to promote best practice and help our traders to strive for excellence.”
