Inaugural Professional Services Awards: winners and recap

June 28th, 2022

On Monday 23 May the university welcomed around 250 Professional Services colleagues to come together and celebrate our collective achievements over the last two years at an inaugural Professional Services awards ceremony.

Held at the East Midlands Conference Centre, colleagues that attended the event were either shortlisted teams or representatives from Professional Services.

The ceremony was opened by host Professor Jeremy Gregory, followed by a welcome speech by Vice Chancellor Professor Shearer West.

Winners for each of the eight award categories were announced by the Professional Services Executive Group; David Hill, Paul Greatrix, Jaspal Kaur and Margaret Monckton.

The opening speeches focussed on the tremendous efforts over the last two years of Professional Services staff navigating through lockdowns and coping with ongoing process and regulatory changes.

This meant that teams had to be adaptable, innovative and creative to ensure our campuses stayed open, teaching and research continued and that Professional Services teams provided support for our entire university community at times where it was challenging both personally and professionally.

Registrar Paul Greatrix reflected that, with over 180 nominations across the eight award categories, it was a a near impossible task for the judging panel to pick winners and highly commended teams.

A full list of winners can be found below.
