You are invited to nominate your professional services colleagues for this year’s Professional Services Recognition Scheme. The deadline for nominations is 16 August 2024.

The Professional Services Recognition Scheme celebrates our professional services colleagues’ contribution to the University. The scheme highlights and celebrates the very best work across all professional services, whether those staff are operational, administrative or technical, or whether they work within a School, Department, Faculty or Non-School Institution. The scheme is open to individuals and teams. You can read more about last year’s winners on the Staff Hub.

We have made some changes to the categories this year, including adding an ‘Improving our Environmental Performance’ award to commend individuals or teams who have shown initiative or gone out of their way to address environmental issues in their day-to-day work.

Nominations for the 2024 Professional Services Scheme

You can nominate any professional services staff member working within the academic University for an award. Nominating is an easy way to show appreciation for one of your colleagues and I encourage you to consider doing so. Nominations can be made using an online form.  

You can nominate a colleague for an award in the following categories:

  • The Jonathan Nicholls Rising Star Award
  • Innovating and Improving
  • Being Kind to Colleagues
  • Creating an Inclusive Community
  • Unsung Hero
  • Demonstrating Excellence in Leadership and Management
  • Improving our Environmental Performance

You can find further details about each category on the Professional Services Recognition Scheme webpage. Nominations close on 16 August 2024 at 5pm.
