Swarfega is once again on the hunt for the Toughest Trade

GD1925 Bricklayer Trade Social Tiles GD1925 Plasterer Trade Social Tile 05 WINNER Bigger and better for 2019, once again Swarfega are on the hunt for the toughest trade out there. . After a hard-fought battle, the 2018 title was handed to Russell Ennis, representing plasterers with his mammoth task of plastering a huge vaulted ceiling. In 2019 Swarfega will be on the hunt again, to find out if plasterers 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. From Charlie Nash representing plumbers with his contortionist skills, to Graeme Lang, an offshore scaffolder, Swarfega want to know who can beat 2018’s entries.

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. Builders didn’t make the top 5 last year, so make sure you show Swarfega that builders mean business in 2019!

Across January and February Swarfega will be challenging you to post a picture of you or a colleague battling your toughest task on their Facebook or Twitter page with the hashtag #ToughestTrade and a short reason why your trade should win 2019’s accolade.
