Could you be the next Student Employee of the Year?
Nominations for this year’s Student Employee of the Year (SEOTY) award are now open!
If you’re working a job to boost your income while you’re at Brighton, then this could be a chance for you to earn some recognition – and a little extra cash – as a result of your hard work. All you need to do is ask your employer to nominate you before mid-April.
When we talk to employers, we hear over and over again that they are looking to hire people with a proven track record of excellence. And that doesn’t just mean academic grades. Formal recognition of any kind can give your CV a real boost and help you stand out from the pack.
A SEOTY award, or even a nomination, could give you the edge you need to succeed. You would also be in with a chance to win a £100 cheque, a trophy, a certificate, and admission to the SEOTY alumni network – a great way to make vital contacts that could help your career.
There are three main categories of SEOTY award:
Above & Beyond – To recognise a student who goes above and beyond their duties on a regular basis.
Commercial Impact – Honouring a student who has made a big commercial impact on a company or organisation, whether by increasing profits, generating new business, saving money or developing an enterprising new idea.
Step Up To Leadership – This is given to a student who has proved themselves in a leadership role, taking responsibility for a project or department.
So if you’re working while studying, and you think you might be in with a shot in one of the above categories, ask your employer if they would consider putting you forward for this coveted national award. All they need to do is complete a nomination form. Online applications must be in by 18 April. For paper-based applications, the deadline is 15 April.
