The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has launched its annual search for the industry’s rising stars through the BMF Young Achiever Awards 2021. The Awards feature two categories – Young Merchant Achiever and Young Supplier/Service Achiever – with both being open to anyone under 35 who has demonstrated an ability to go above and beyond in their role.

Entrants can be nominated by a manager, a colleague, or even nominate themselves. The closing date is 31st July 2021, and the Award winners will be announced at the BMF Members’ Annual Conference and Awards on 23rd September 2021.

John Newcomb, CEO of the BMF, said: “With so much media focus on skills shortages and the difficulties of attracting young people into the industry, it’s easy to overlook the fact that there is already a pool of extremely talented young people working in the building materials industry. The BMF Young Achiever Awards recognise and reward their talent, commitment, innovation and achievement.”
