If you cast your minds back to last year, you may remember that we ran a competition offering a grand total of £3000 for a business to take on an apprentice. We’re strong believers in apprenticeships, feeling it’s an excellent way for a young person to learn a trade and we wanted to do our little bit to help a deserving business take someone on.
The lucky winner was Derby-based plumber Sam Smith, who runs his own company S G Smith Plumbing & Heating. Sam opted to take on local lad Jacob Ball, and it’s proven to be a real success story.
Sam was recently interviewed by Rishi Chowdhury, co-founder of YHP Magazine, an online magazine site dedicated to SMEs, which Trade Radiators has proudly featured in in the past.
