Hazel B, Diversity and Inclusion shortlistee

Hazel B, shortlisted in the Diversity and Inclusivity Champion of the Year category said: “It was such a lovely surprise to find out that I’d been nominated for this award, let alone shortlisted! I am so proud to see the work that we complete in the LGBTQ+ Network being recognised and I look forward to continuing to come up with new campaigns, policy amendments and activities in my capacity as Network lead.”




Cerys O, shortlised in the Finance Professional of the Year category, said: “I joined the Finance team in September 2020 as a Finance Admin and have recently progressed onto the role of a Billing Lead. During my time I have had the opportunity to learn all aspects within the Finance Department and improve my skills. I am honoured to receive the nomination for Finance Professional of the Year, it was a lovely surprise. It means a great deal to be put forward and recognised for my efforts and I look forward to the ceremony!’


Sam T, HR Professional of the Year shortlistee

Sam T, shortlisted in the HR Professional of the Year category, said: “I was very flattered to find out that I had been shortlisted, and obviously pleased to see that the work we do as an organisation and on the HR team doesn’t go unrecognised. Hopefully it’ll encourage more people to access us for support if they need it.”





Josh G, HR Professional of the Year shortlistee

Josh G, shortlisted in the HR Professional of the Year category, said: “It was really nice to feel appreciated and to know that the work you do is making a positive impact on the organisation.

Josh U, shortlisted in the Technology/Innovation Professional of the Year category, said: “I was flattered beyond belief to hear I’d been shortlisted, I really wasn’t expecting it and to see my colleagues shortlisted too for their work was lovely.”



Laura P, shortlisted in the Business Support Professional of the Year category, said: “It felt really nice to be appreciated and to see that my good work has been noticed. I’m really looking forward to attending the ceremony in February.”




Abbie DG, shortlisted in the Business Support Professional of the Year category, said: “I feel incredibly flattered to have been nominated in the first place for the awards so it was a shock to find out I had been shortlisted. There are so many people across Creative Support who do incredible work, so it is amazing to be able to represent the organisation at the awards and show off all the incredible work we have been able to achieve.”




A huge congratulations to all of the shortlisted nominees, both within Creative Support and beyond. We hope you all have a wonderful time at the ceremony and are keeping our fingers crossed for you!
