Celebrating our stars

27 January 2017

The winners of the Professional Services Excellence Awards have been announced.

The Awards recognise the outstanding contributions of staff within Professional Services. This year saw 273 nominations which is a testament to our staff who go above and beyond their day-to-day role and highlights how staff value the contributions of their colleagues.

All of the shortlisted nominees were invited to the event which was hosted by the Registrar, Robin Geller, who said: “The awards are a wonderful way of highlighting the fantastic work that is being done across the professional services - both in central divisions and in the faculties and schools.  The quality of the 273 nominations demonstrates the breadth of activities across the University and the commitment to delivering high quality services to a wide range of stakeholders. It was an inspiring evening where we recognised and celebrated outstanding performance by professional services staff."
