Boom time for Karen

Release Date: 30/08/2019

ELECSA registrant Karen Boom, who runs She's Electric, has made it through to the semi-final of a national competition to find the UK's Top tradesperson.

If she makes it through to the next round she will take part in the live final of Screwfix Britain's Top Tradesperson competition in Farnborough next month.

Karen, of Billericay, said: "As a female in a traditionally male environment, I'm passionate about being a role model for other women who are thinking of entering the trades.

Making it through to the regional finals is a real achievement for me, and something I'm incredibly proud of, but to make it through to the finals would mean even more, showing it's never too late to retrain and do a job you love."

The winner will not only walk away with the accolade, but a top prize worth £20,000, made up of £10,000 worth of tools, £5,000 of technology and £5,000 for future training.

To make it to the final Karen will have to go through interviews about her business, trade skills, customer service and ambitions.
