Professional Services Awards 2020

Recognise, celebrate and reward your colleagues who have demonstrated outstanding performance in their roles, contributing to the success of UCL.

UCL Ways of Working sign

Nominations for the next PS Awards are now open.

Do you or somebody you work with deserve to be recognised, celebrated and rewarded for contributing to the success of UCL?

We want to hear about the people who demonstrates integrity, outstanding service and commitment to UCL, about the teams who are striving towards UCL’s future and about the incredible things people are doing beyond the boundaries of the institutes and departments of UCL.

Celebrating our achievements is key to One PS and to UCL being a great place to work. The annual PS Conference has traditionally celebrated colleagues at an end of year awards ceremonies. To ensure that staff are celebrated all year round the nominations for awards will be open throughout the year.

The next awards will be held in December 2020 with nominations closing in November. Further awards will be held in June. 

Staff who deliver professional services, based in divisions, departments, faculties or Vice-Provosts' offices, are eligible for nomination.
