Quinn Building Products have been announced as category sponsors for the 2019 Builders’ Merchants Awards for Excellence. The annual awards, held by Builders’ Merchants News in partnership with Builders’ Merchants Federation, recognise the best and brightest in the industry.
Quinn will sponsor the Trainee of the Year category at this year’s awards, which acknowledges the achievements of a merchant business in developing its emerging talent.
Speaking of the sponsorship, Lee Gillman, Quinn’s GB Sales and Marketing Director, said,
“We’ve chosen to get involved with this year’s awards as we believe there is a wealth of talent in this industry that should rightly be recognised, and we want to fully support this.
It’s very fitting that we’re sponsoring the Trainee of the Year category, as the nurturing and development of the industry’s future is synonymous with our own commitment to creating a sustainable workforce.
As a company, we have a range of opportunities to offer our own staff and we’re heavily involved with numerous schools and colleges through our Creating Futures Programme. We’ve developed an award-winning partnership with one of these schools, so we have some understanding of what is required to meet and exceed the high standards in this particular category.
We wish the entrants the very best of luck and look forward to seeing some excellent entries.”
The judges of the Trainee of the Year category will be looking for merchant staff members who have worked hard to develop their skills through modules and/or vocational training, while also making a demonstrable contribution to their employer’s business.
The Awards are held in November each year and have been hosted by some very famous individuals, with Joanna Lumley and Lenny Henry hosting the last two years’ respectively.
