TTA Awards - Trainee Tile Fixer of the Year – Joint Winner Charlie Green

April 2019

Charlie Green joined W B Simpson & Sons (Midlands) Limited in 2016 as an Apprentice, after completing his GCSEs at Ashlawn School, Rugby.  He has been studying Wall and Floor Tiling at Moulton College, Northampton, successfully achieving an NVQ Level 2.  He very quickly established himself as a keen, adaptable learner and is now honing his skills as a tile fixer.

Charlie has represented W B Simpson & Sons on various projects, particularly the HSBC New Retail and Commercial Bank HQ in the heart of Birmingham.  This 11-storey building is the first to be constructed to LEED (Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design) in Birmingham.

Charlie has been supported and trained by the company’s senior tilers, many of whom were apprentice tilers with W B Simpson & Sons themselves.  Charlie has subsequently developed an excellent attitude and aptitude within the industry.
