Dave Farrow, Area Director – Management Trainee Scheme

I joined the industry part time when I was at college, and had never really considered a career in Builders Merchanting. I quickly found that the industry was heavily focused on people and building relationships with customers and colleagues and this was really rewarding.

I chose not to go to university and joined a Management Trainee programme, working in every area of builders merchanting. From there I progressed into internal sales, external sales, sales management, branch management and then regional projects.

I am now an Area Director and I recently completed my Post Graduate Diploma with Jewson. I enjoy the industry now even more than I did when I joined 17 years ago. Builders Merchanting is a place where you really can grow your career and your own career path if you have the desire, ambition and attitude to do it!
