“The SJIB Apprentice of the Year awards celebrate the best new talent in our industry and reinforce the fact that apprentices are the sector’s great hope for the future. Ben is a remarkable young electrical professional who has demonstrated a tenacity and determination to succeed in his chosen career and has now acquired skills which are not only future-proofed but internationally-transferrable. He has shown both ability and dedication throughout his training and we are delighted that Ben has now been recognised for his exceptional talent.”
