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

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!
