Get Her Trade is a comprehensive, free-to-search online directory of tradeswomen that allows customers to find female traders based on location, service type or reviews.
All the traders registered on the site list their contact and business details including how many people there are in their company with a breakdown of males to females on their individual company page. All of this is then verified by the GHT Team. Customers of each trader will soon be able to leave reviews making your selection process as easy as possible (this part of the site is still being developed).
Founder and CEO Natasha Clark-Withers, a 32 year old EX British Gas engineer, spotted a gap in the market after constant feedback from customers wanting more tradeswomen in their homes.
Having secured funding from Virgin Startup, the aim of Get Her Trade is to give tradeswomen the exposure they deserve in male dominated industry. As well as providing exposure to women currently working in the trades, Get Her Trade also offers opportunities and encouragement for other women interested in joining up.
Natasha will soon be running workshops at schools and colleges as part of her goal to empower young women to join the trades and get excited about the possibilities of a long and rewarding career. "We want to encourage and help more women join and see it as a career to be proud of. Learning a trade is a skill for life"
