Jack, who has been a window cleaner for 11 years, (seven with Nationwide) was awarded the highly coveted and contested FWC 'Employee of the Year 2015' Award from hundreds of nominations. The FWC said that Jack was: "The cream of a very talented professional crop."
Working for Nationwide Window Cleaning in the South Eastern Region, Jack has honed his skills on many of the tallest and most prestigious buildings including The British Museum, Imperial College and Heathrow Airport; using a range of window cleaning techniques from cradles and bosun's chair to high level access machinery.

Jack, who won the Nationwide Window Cleaning Employee of the Month and Employee of the Year Awards in 2014 - out of 200 employees, received his FWC Award certificate, trophy and £100 gift voucher from FWC Executive Scott Smith.
"I'm over the moon - three Awards in 12 months is terrific!" enthused Jack. "I'm absolutely delighted! Today customers' standards have never been higher and to get some of the client references I received makes this demanding job worthwhile."
Three Nationwide Window Cleaning directors, including Managing Director Thornton Tasker, who founded the company; attended the presentation at the Cleaning Show. Thornton said: "Jack illustrates that our training programme is working. He is a shining example of the best in the business."
