TTA Awards - Trainee Tile Fixer of the Year – Joint Winner Alex Hammond

April 2019

Alex Hammond began his role as an apprentice tiler at The Great Northern Tiling Company Ltd immediately after leaving school in 2017, and has already developed significantly in his ability.  He has relished the opportunity to learn from his highly-skilled colleagues and has exceeded expectations in all training provided.  Alex is also currently working towards gaining an NVQ Level 2 in Wall and Floor Tiling at Sheffield City College, demonstrating his clear passion for the trade and willingness to learn.

Over the past year, Alex has contributed tremendously towards some highly prestigious commercial contracts, including a current project at the Mercedes-Benz car showroom in Erdington, as well as previous works at the Mayfield Pool Leisure Centre in Dagenham, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Spa in Chester and several F1 Autocentres across the country, to name just a few.  His excellent work throughout these projects has evidenced how he has very quickly become a skilful young tiler, and is already an integral part of the team.

Having embraced all the challenges that he has faced with enthusiasm and maturity, Alex has become a huge credit to The Great Northern Tiling Company and the industry, and has forged some great relationships with colleagues.  He has also set a great example for all future apprentices to follow.
