BASILDON Business is launching its own apprenticeship-style competition to find the next “construction superstar” in a nationwide shortage of plumbers and electricians.
Inspired by the hit BBC show, Logic4training challenges candidates with a series of challenging tasks, with the winner set to receive “substantial support” to start their own building business.
Prizes also include help designing a new website, Checkatrade membership, and “lifelong training” in plumbing, heating, or electricity.

The Basildon-based company is one of the nation’s leading ‘Architectural Services Training Course Providers’.
The process also includes social media-based tasks and a direct board interview with Kevin Budd, Founder and Managing Director of Logic4training.
“This is a great opportunity for young people and career changers to establish themselves as rising stars in plumbing, heating and electricity.
“The construction industry is struggling to recruit skilled workers, so we want to show people that a career in trade can be very challenging, exciting and lucrative.”
According to the company, a recent poll showed that nearly two-fifths of young people would not consider a career in the construction industry.
The competition is designed to help rebrand plumbing, electricity and heating trades as “a more exciting career option.”
Anyone over the age of 18 with an interest in the construction industry is welcome to participate.
“The winner is social media savvy and not shy in front of the camera.
“They are willing to document their training journey and are keen to share their course experiences that help illustrate how exciting it is to work in a building trade.
“This is a truly life-changing opportunity that sets someone up for a rewarding career path in an industry that is always in high demand.”
