UK WOTY underway

The UK Worker of the Year (UK WOTY) competition is now underway with prizes available including £250,000, a Honda Jazz car, a Honda Crosstourer 1200cc motorbike, a Honda Marine Rib boat, a year’s free shopping at ASDA, a luxury holiday and more.

UK WOTY is sponsored by workwear specialists Dickies in association with Honda and ASDA. The competition is open to anyone in the UK who works.

Kirk Ehrlich, president of Williamson-Dickie Europe Ltd, said, ‘We are delighted to have opened up this year’s competition and to have the exciting association with two outstanding brands such as ASDA and Honda make for a fantastic seventh year for the UK Worker of the Year competition.’

This is the seventh year Dickies has run the national competition, with carer and homicide case worker Katie Washbourne from Birmingham coming out on top last year.

Katie Washbourne, winner of UK Worker of the Year 2015, commented, ‘I would urge everyone who hears about the competition to log on to the website and enter. It doesn’t cost you a penny apart from a couple of minutes and winning can change your life. It certainly did for me and I also met some lovely people along the way and really enjoyed the journey.’

To enter, visit and answer two simple questions about what your job is and why you think you or your nominee should win UKWOTY. The competition runs through to September.
