Derek Gough Associates celebrated the win of the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ award on the 8th of November 2019, which was possible due to the hard work of Nick Wilkinson. This was awarded at the North East Cheshire Business Awards (NECBA). Nick is Derek Gough Associates (DGA) very first apprentice who started in the May of 2018, and he sets a high example for not just apprentices, but his other colleagues at the business. 

Nick won gold on the night amongst other deserving finalists.

Nick is an asset to Derek Gough Associates and all of the team are incredibly proud of him. 

Nick hopes to become a chartered quantity surveyor once he has completed his apprenticeship, something that DGA are incredibly supportive of. DGA prides itself on its support regarding learning and expanding skills within the workplace.
