Commercial & Campus Support Services


Nominate Now!What is Spotlight?

Did you ever wish you could get some really great recognition for one of your fantastic colleagues? Well, the Spotlight recognition programme is a brilliant way to do it.

Commercial & Campus Support Services is full of outstanding people who are doing things all the time which really show our behaviours in action. These are the people who are role models for us all and who are doing the kind of things we all want to aspire.


Spotlight Finalists

Winners of each category throughout the year go forward to an annual awards ceremony where one winner is announced in each category.


How does it work?

Anyone can nominate anyone else or a team for an award if they have seen some evidence of exceptional work, great ideas or an outstanding attitude. Four times per year, a panel will review all the nominations and select winners from each category. A Spotlight award ceremony is then held at the wider CS Leadership Lunch – this is Commercial & Campus Support Services’ mini-version of the Oscars!

The finalists in each category are announced from which the winners will be chosen. As if that wasn’t recognition enough, the category winners go forward to an annual awards ceremony with a member of the Vice-Chancellor’s Executive Group, for further recognition and awards. So what are you waiting for – get nominating…
