“The whole thing is absolutely unbelievable,” commented Paul. “Every single one of the other people who has made it into the final is fantastic. I didn’t even think I would make it into the last six, so to actually receive the Runner Up award is so unexpected, I can’t explain how great it feels.”

Highly commended were Newport electrician, Sam Gibbon, Jason Lawrence – an AV sales manager from Abingdon and Liverpool teacher, Jen Whelan.

UK Worker of the Year is now in its second year of looking to recognise, reward and promote excellence in the British workforce and the word has spread wider than ever before about both the competition.
