Dillon Jones of Derry Building Services wins prestigious industry prize
Electrical apprentice Dillon Jones has been recognised as one of the country’s leading electrotechnical and engineering services trainees, after winning the coveted 2019 ECA Edmundson Apprentice of the Year Award.
Dillon, who works for ECA Member-firm Derry Building Services in Newark, was trained by leading provider JTL.
After overcoming fierce competition from two other finalists, Dillon won prizes including £1,500 and a study tour to France sponsored by industry manufacturer Schneider.
He will also go on to be an ambassador for the electrotechnical industry over the next 12 months.
Dillon said: “It’s a real honour to be recognised as the ECA Edmundson Apprentice of the Year 2019. I’m looking forward to becoming an ambassador for other apprentices and helping to spread the word that apprenticeships do lead to a rewarding, varied, well-paid career, and really are a viable alternative to going to university.”
