TTC is proud to be supporting the “UK Worker of the Year 2013” competition, in association with Dickies and Suzuki, to find Britain's top workers and ultimately the “UK Worker of the Year”. The winner will win a car or bike of their choice.

TTC is championing this award in the Commercial Vehicle and Fleet Industry sector. Putting yourself forward or alternatively recommending someone you know, who deserves to be rewarded for the excellent work they do, could not be easier. Simply answer a few easy questions and your passion and dedication (or that of your colleagues) will shine through.

It is the fourth year of the competition which seeks to recognise and reward excellence in the British workforce. The event is promoted and hosted by Quentin Willson, who writes in the Daily Mail, and was one of the original presenters on BBC's Top Gear.

Di Mayze, a Nottingham-based entrepreneur, was crowned “UK Worker of the Year for 2012” and on March 1st this year she received the keys to her brand new SEAT Altea.

Di wowed the judges with her passion and drive for her business, becoming the competitions’ third winner, at the Gala event at the Crowne Plaza in Marlow last year.

“This competition has changed my life and the car will help me so much with my work and business in the future. The journey has been brilliant and I’ve met so many fantastic people during my time in the competition. I’m already looking forward to being a part of UK Worker of the Year 2013.”

“I would urge anyone who hears about the competition to have a go at entering or to nominate someone. It costs nothing except a few minutes of time and those few minutes could prove to be incredibly worthwhile,” says Di.

Maurice Morton, Sales & Marketing Director at Dickies adds “Given the on-going uncertainty that the country faces economically, a feel-good initiative of this type is more important than ever, to remind our nation’s work force that they have much to be proud of and look forward to and the winner will be driving away with a Suzuki vehicle.”

Joint second place in 2012 went to Somerset Pest Controller, Tom Edwards and Suffolk Painter & Decorator Anna Bettis who walked away with thousands of pounds of holiday vouchers.

In 2010, looking to put something back into the British market they serve, Dickies launched a nationwide scheme to seek out the best that the UK has to offer among workers and give the country something to be proud of in these tough economic times.

“UK Worker of the Year” is completely free to enter and is open to anyone who works in the UK aged 17 or over.

The 2013 Grand Finale where the winner is chosen is on the 18thOctober at the Millennium Madejski Hotel Reading. As with the previous three awards nights, the evening will be themed and Dickies is promising something very special – but in keeping with the company and the nature of the competition.
