Your Nottingham Alumni Awards 2024 – submit your nominations and volunteer to join our panel

November 17th, 2023

Nominations for the 2024 Your Nottingham Alumni Awards are now open.

The Your Nottingham Alumni Awards celebrate our alumni community and share the stories of how they carry Nottingham’s values into the world.

No two paths or experiences are the same; that’s what makes our community so special. Our awards are designed to reflect this rich diversity and the amazing contributions being made in so many different ways.

Submit your nomination

We want to hear about alumni whose achievements inspire you and who make a positive difference to those around them. Fill in our online form and complete your entry by Wednesday 17 January 2024.

Apply to volunteer to join our selection panel.

Nominations for the Your Nottingham Alumni Awards will be shared with a selection panel, who will score each nomination against the criteria.

We are looking for a mixture of staff from across all levels and job families to apply to volunteer as panel members.

Last year our panel was under-represented in staff from job levels 2 and 3, so we would be especially pleased to hear from interested applicants at these levels.

We actively encourage applications from staff who identify as members of often underrepresented groups. Our alumni community is hugely diverse and it is important that our panel reflects this.

“I would like to say a huge thank you for letting me be a part of the panel. As a level 2, I don’t often receive opportunity to make an impact or be a part of something of this scale and I really appreciate you choosing me to be a part of the panel.”
Quote from 2023 panel member

What is required
