[23 Jan 2015] The UKeiG Early Career Award is offered to early-career professionals who are both members of CILIP and who have no more than five years work experience since gaining their professional qualification The award will be presented each year to the individual who has made the most inspirational or enterprising difference - either in their workplace or to the wider profession. UKeiG is looking for a level of professional commitment that has resulted in achievements beyond what was expected of them in the workplace.
Nominations will be accepted from colleagues, management or from the individual concerned - although in the latter case it will be essential to provide signed, third-party support and sponsorship.
UKeiG is now seeking nominations for this award.
Please send a short descriptive statement demonstrating the difference that the nominee has made to their colleagues, users or the wider profession. The most successful applications will be those providing clear documentary support and evidence of the achievement.
The nominee must be a UK citizen, a member of CILIP and in the first five years of his/her career.
A panel of judges will assess the nominations and an award of a trophy plus a cheque for £1,000 will be made to the winner.
Nominations should reach UKeiG by March 27th 2015. Nominations and supporting documentation should be sent to Chris Armstrong at firstname.lastname@example.org.
