Following the success of plasterers in 2018, mechanics in 2019 and farmers in 2020, Swarfega is on the hunt for the toughest trade out there. After a hard-fought battle, farmer Victoria Haney scooped the title of Toughest Tradesperson 2020, winning a £200 Amazon voucher as well as some serious respect. Victoria’s entry came out on top as it showed a snapshot of images from tending to the cows to early morning rises, closely followed by a number of other gritty entries from mechanics to gravediggers.
After one of the toughest years, Swarfega is on the hunt to find out if farmers can defend their title or if they’ll be defeated by a competing trade.
There’s no doubt about it, people working in the trades take on some of the toughest tasks around, as we saw at the start of this year. Whether you are a roofer shifting tons of materials high in the sky come rain or shine or a brickie making sure that solid foundations are built upon, builders definitely work in some of the harshest conditions.
Launching on today through to March, Swarfega will be challenging tradespeople to post a picture of them or a colleague battling their toughest task on the Swarfega Facebook or Twitter page, along with the hashtag #ToughestTrade and a short reason why their trade should win 2021’s accolade.
Throughout early 2021, using the Tough-O-Meter, Swarfega will judge each picture and choose the one showing the toughest task. The top 4 will be narrowed down and the winner will then be put to a social media vote. The crowning tradesperson will receive £200 in Amazon vouchers and the trade that the winner represents will be crowned Swarfega’s New Toughest Trade for 2021. The runners-up in places 2-4 will also receive a £50 Amazon voucher.
