:: The Irish Federation of Master Tradesmen :: IFMT Certified Master Tradesmen and Contractors

Have you ever had a bad experience or not been fully satisfied with a tradesman?


What were the reasons for this?

Poor Timekeeping

Bad Workmanship
Materials not Sound
Unnecessary Delays
Poor After Sales


1) To maintain a competitive edge in our industry by remaining focused towards consumers and ensure that a strong consumer voice is heard throughout our organisation. To maintain our ability to listen and adapt our organisation to meet the ever changing needs and demands of consumers and the growing trends in the market.

2) To continually concentrate on the further development of our Code of Practice through ongoing market research and national consumer surveys.

3) To operate a quality not quantity attitude towards the scale of our member base. To focus on the quality of the Tradesmen we represent and for high volume subscriptions and sales targets not to become our priority.

4) To demand high standards from all of our members and take a zero tolerance policy towards any members who might bring the IFMT and its members into disrepute.

5) To gain national recognition of our organisation and a strong reputation for all of our members through above the line and below the line advertising mediums. To promote the official IFMT trademark as A Sign of Quality.

6) To focus heavily on the internet as our primary advertising solution and to provide an innovative and accessible web site allowing users to search our freely available database of skilled, reputable and recommended Tradesmen and Contractors.

7) To provide all of our members with their own web page within the IFMT web site in order to reduce their advertising costs and increase business. To work towards providing additional benefits as voted or suggested by our members.

8) To take the bulk of the Irish Building Industry and related online searches through effective search engine optimisation and internet marketing.

9) To continually monitor the performance of our organisation and our members of staff through individual evaluation and ongoing training and by taking on board comments, suggestions and feedback.

10) To ensure both the growth and continued success of our organisation in gaining the confidence of today's consumers by demonstrating our core strengths. We will constantly work towards being the leading professional body in Ireland for Tradesmen and Contractors.


I am currently living in the UK but looking at buying a house in Ireland that I could renovate. I will need a variety of Tradesmen to work on the project while I am not there and being able to hire reputable tradesmen through your organisation will give me peace of mind. I look forward to being able to source all my tradesmen from your web site. This will save me valuable time and costly telephone calls too.

Thank you for taking my email seriously, it appears from the attachment that we are of the same mind with regard to services to the consumer being equal to good business.
