Swarfega seeks out the ‘Toughest Trade in the UK’

Swarfega seeks out the ‘Toughest Trade in the UK’

For the fifth year running – and following the success of plasterers in 2018, mechanics in 2019, farmers in 2020 and fishermen in 2021 – Swarfega is once again on the hunt for the Toughest Trade in the UK.

After what the skin care expert has described as a “fiercely contested battle on social media”, fisherman Jack West scooped the coveted title of Toughest Tradesperson 2021, winning a £200 voucher prize. Closely followed by a number of other gritty entries from electricians to roofers, Jack’s entry came out victorious as it depicted his trawler navigating the crashing waves of the open sea.

Launching this year’s competition, which may be of interest to the merchant sector’s trade customers, the company said: “There’s no doubt about it, people working in the trades take on some of the toughest tasks around. Whether you’re a roofer shifting materials sky high come rain or shine or a brickie laying solid foundations, builders definitely work in some of the harshest conditions. Roofers made the top four but didn’t quite clinch top spot last year, so make sure you show Swarfega that builders mean business in 2022!”

Launched on Blue Monday (17th January 2022), the competition will run until March. Swarfega is challenging tradespeople to post a picture of themselves or a colleague battling their toughest task on the Swarfega Facebook or Twitter page, along with the hashtag #ToughestTrade and a short reason why they think their trade should win 2022’s accolade.

Picking the Toughest Trade is a tricky task, so to make it a fair fight, the Swarfega team will choose the top four entries and will then let the public decide who should win in a social media vote. The tradesperson crowned the 2022 winner will receive £200 in Amazon vouchers, and the trade that the winner represents will be crowned Swarfega’s New Toughest Trade for 2022. The runners-up in places 2-4 will also receive a £50 Amazon voucher.
