Case Studies


Apprentice wins Regional recognition


Duffield Building Services are a small to medium building company who presently employ 4 apprentices in our drive to develop the next generation of builders and further our workforce by in-house training. We are very proud to announce that one of our apprentices Jack Edwards has been awarded Yorkshire and Trent’s ‘Apprentice of the Year’ in the Federation of Master Builders’ (FMB) Master Builder Awards 2019 held at a black-tie event in Manchester. As part of the Master Builder Awards, the FMB carries out a nationwide search to find the building industry’s best apprentices.


This was a hard-fought category within the FMB and is testament to Jack’s outstanding work ethic, along with his skill and attention to detail, producing workmanship way above his years. Jack continued to study past the standard 2 year apprenticeship to differentiate himself from other apprentices and has now completed his level 3 (Joinery)qualification.


Nigel Williams, Director of DBS says ‘Jack operates independently like someone who has 10+ years of craft experience. His range of skills is very impressive for someone who is still only 20. He now routinely constructs timber roofs, creates stud partition walls and joisted floors.


He is valued by all of our other tradesmen to deliver an excellent quality job, and nobody questions whether he is capable to complete a task. He is a very highly valued member of the DBS team.


Apart from his technical skills Jack epitomises the ethos and standards that makes DBS stand out from the crowd. DBS tries very hard to be respectful, high quality, and to operate with utmost integrity. Indeed, Duffield Building Services were also Highly Commended in the ‘Heavenly Builder’ category of the awards and we would like to thank our clients for their nominations.'


I am proud to say that Jack demonstrates our qualities to our clients on a daily basis.’

As a regional winner, Jack will now go up against other winning apprentices from around the UK with a chance to claim the coveted national Apprentice 2019 crown, as well as a cash prize of £500 from the FMB. The national ceremony will be held at the Intercontinental Hotel, Park Lane, London on 20th September.


We wish him all the best with this.
