Simply Business, one of the UK’s largest small business insurance providers, analysed over 200,000 policies from tradespeople across the UK to reveal the biggest growth in earnings across the trades.

Alan Thomas, UK CEO at Simply Business, comments: “The past couple of years have been remarkably hard on tradespeople, so it’s encouraging to see that an increase in demand for their skills has led to a rise in earnings for so many in the trades. 

“Over the past two years, tradespeople have demonstrated remarkable resilience, navigating supply shortages, price hikes, inflation and tax increases. And despite this, almost half of tradespeople still remain positive about the future. The UK’s tradespeople will continue to play a key role in the rebuilding of our economy and our communities, and their ongoing resilience should give us all confidence that we’re on the right track to recovery.”
