Do you know someone who always goes the extra mile?

03 Feb 2014

Submit your nominations by Friday, 7 February 2014 for those special people in the Professional Support Services (PSS), the Library, Museum, Gallery or at the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre who always go ‘above and beyond.’

Award-winners of 2013

If you know someone working in any of these areas who is always willing to put in that bit extra to get a job done, always provides an excellent service or goes out of their way to help someone or solve a problem, why not put them forward for a President’s Distinguished Achievement Award so that they know they are appreciated?

As well as individuals, we’re also looking for teams based in the PSS, Library, Museum, Gallery or Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre.

If you would like to make a nomination we will need a statement from you by Friday, 7 February 2014 explaining how the person or team:

  • has regularly shown they have a ‘can do attitude’
  • is a team player
  • is always willing to do that bit extra to help staff, students or visitors
  • is flexible and respectful at all times

All staff are also able to nominate in the:

General category of the Distinguished Achievement Awards

The General category is to be used only when the other categories of awards are not appropriate. In such cases, a member or staff or a student can be nominated.  The General category is designed to recognised sustained and/or exceptional service to the University which is over and above what it normally expected of someone as part of their job, role or course. Retiring staff members of retiring lay members of the Board of Governors might be examples. You can nominate for the General category by Friday, 7 Febrary 2014 or at any time of year.
