This year, TrustMark celebrates its tenth anniversary and has commissioned a special report to discuss professionalism in UK trades. As an approved TrustMark scheme operator for many installer trades, as well as DEA and legionella, Stroma Certification is pleased to support TrustMark.
TrustMark is the only Government-endorsed ‘find a tradesperson’ scheme for all trades in and around the home. Their report called ‘Celebrating Today’s Trades and the Value of Professionalism’ aims to banish the dated image of the white van man by demonstrating how TrustMark membership helps to reinforce a professional attitude towards homeowners.
There has always been a clear synergy between the work done by TrustMark and through Stroma Certification’s approved certification schemes. Membership of Stroma is defined by competence and in ensuring members have the requisite skills to provide a professional service to customers. By the same token TrustMark advocates reputable firms who are searchable via the TrustMark website.
Liz Male MBE, chairman of TrustMark, said: “TrustMark has helped many millions of people over the last 10 years, so today it’s right to celebrate the local firms who do so much to support homeowners and build a £27 billion economy. They epitomise a new era of professionalism across a wide range of trades, a million miles away from the old stereotypes of ‘white van man.”
