Devon apprentice finalist in national building awards
Having recently been named the Best Builders Merchant for Self Builders at the Build It Awards, RGB Building Supplies is celebrating once again. Apprentice, Sarah Daniel, is a finalist in the Trainee of the Year category in the prestigious Builders Merchants News Awards for Excellence.
Sarah began working for RGB at their Holsworthy branch, before moving to the Bideford depot and now the Barnstaple branch. Throughout her apprenticeship, she has learnt all aspects of RGB’s business and has made suggestions that have been implemented by RGB, which is something the Builders Merchants News Awards for Excellence took note of.
Having completed her apprenticeship, Sarah is now employed full time at RGB as a Category Merchandising Assistant.
Sarah told the Devon Week: “I am a little bit shocked that I have been named as a finalist in the Builders Merchants News Awards for Excellence as they are highly thought of in the industry, but of course I’m delighted.
“Since I joined RGB, I’ve noticed how hard the team works to ensure that our customers have the best experience possible. Everyone is always happy to give advice and listen to any ideas that I have.
“I’m looking forward to attending the awards presentation and celebrating everything that is good about the industry.”
Keith Harris, product and marketing manager at RGB, said: “Throughout her apprenticeship, Sarah was dedicated and hardworking and we are delighted to welcome her as a permanent member of the team.”
Sarah will join other finalists at the Builders Merchants News Awards for Excellence presentation on Friday, November 21 at The Lancaster Hotel, London.
