Scott Higgs, saw his career change after finishing runner up at the prestigious FIT Show Masterfitter Challenge in 2013. His achievement was followed by a change of employer, as Walker Windows added him to the team within months of taking part in the keenly fought Masterfitter Challenge final.
Walker Windows, a Huddersfield based company have been installing high quality Windows, Doors and conservatories throughout Yorkshire since the early 80s saw the potential in Scott and wanted to make him a part of their highly skilled workforce.
Scott, a joiner by trade for over 20 years, has been working for Walker Windows for only 6 months and has already been promoted to company surveyor, he is very excited about his new role and says he “owes it all to my GQA level 3 qualification, lasts years Masterfitter results and the publicity I received through it, and the help and support of my assessor Andy Carrington.”
Scott went on to say “Doing a GQA Qualification has opened up doors to better prospects for me and I now know I’m not going to be just a fitter for the rest of my life. I’m looking forward to doing more in work and with further qualifications through GQA”.
Scott has once again applied to take part in the Masterfitter Challenge 2014 and said “I would like one more chance to become the Winner.”
