West Midlands Builder Is In UK Worker of the Year 2016 Final

West Midlands-based builder, Guy Hodgson, has been selected as one of the six finalists for this year’s UK Worker of the Year competition.

Guy uses sustainable products to create environmentally friendly buildings which provide long term value to his customers.

The competition is the concept of Dickies, the world renowned workwear brand and with fellow sponsors Honda UK and ASDA, aims to recognise hard work and commitment across all industry sectors. Judging day is on 14th October at the Mercure Dartford Brands Hatch Hotel, when the panel of judges will quiz Guy on a variety of topics, as he bids to become the seventh UK Worker of the Year.

An excited Guy commented: “I am thrilled to have made this year’s final. I didn’t expect to reach this stage, and to be a finalist already recognises what I strive to achieve in my every day work life.  I’m looking to the time at Brands Hatch, and meeting and supporting the other finalists.”

Competition organiser, Gary Barak said: "Year on year the standard of entries has improved and this year has been no exception. Guy and the other finalists have been selected on merit from amongst the thousands of entries received, a selection process that in itself was no mean feat, and we look forward to the judging stage and Awards evening.”

Should Guy be the winner of UK Worker of the Year 2016, he will have the opportunity to choose a luxury holiday, or from a choice of several Honda vehicles, including a Jazz car, motorbike, rib boat, as well as a years shopping from ASDA and the opportunity to win a potentially life changing £250,000 should he correctly predict the outcome of the top six rider positions in the weekend MCE British Superbike race.

The finalists represent a wide range of professions, from across the country: Paul Harris, an electronics engineer from County Durham; Samantha Lea, a firefighter from Nottingham; Charlotte Morton, a beef farmer from South Yorkshire; Kevin Skeith, a flooring specialist from Sleaford; and Christine Vaghela, an electrician from Elstree in Hertfordshire.
