Electrician from Cambridge reaches final of national trade award

Toby Peacock, an expert electrician from Cambridge, is one step away from being crowned Screwfix Top Tradesperson 2022, after reaching the final, along with nine skilled trade professionals.

Toby (26), who has 9 years of experience in the sector, has been chosen to face a panel of industry experts at the national final at Screwfix LIVE (23rd September) thanks to his expertise, drive, and determination to go above and beyond for his customers.

The panel includes representatives from the Federation of Master Builders, the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering, the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting, and Screwfix Top Tradesperson 2021 winner, Dan Lloyd.

He will have the chance to highlight his skills and dedication to the future of the trade, with the goal of joining Screwfix Top Tradesperson Hall of Fame. One individual will be crowned the champion of the trade and receive a career-boosting £20,000 prize package made up of tech, tools, and training.

Toby, from Down to Earth Electrical Ltd, said: “The award is almost in touching distance now and being one step closer to the final is exciting, and a bit nerve-wracking! Alongside enjoying cricket, playing the accordion and exploring nature with my two dogs, I am extremely passionate about my business. As an individual I value honesty and professionalism, always ensuring I am polite, approachable and well-mannered, so it would be great to be recognised for this alongside my practical skills. If I won, I would also hope to use the platform to become an ambassador for mental health in the trade industry.”

Jack Wallace, Screwfix marketing director, said: “Our annual award looks to reward the best tradespeople across the UK and Ireland. In telling their stories, we want to shine a light on the trade and the skilled work carried out by professionals, day in, day out. Through this award we also hope to inspire others to start a career in the trade and to champion the industry. Good luck to our top 10!”
