Nomination Guidelines

How can I nominate someone for the Campus Services Awards?

Nominating your chosen person or team is easy. Simply fill out each section of the online form and submit it by 11.59pm on Friday 24 March 2023.

 Need a paper copy? Get in touch with Hannah Chapman, who sits in the office opposite Simon Bray's (First Floor, Staff House).

 Please provide as much detail as possible; your supporting statement needs to be between 50 and 200 words, otherwise your nomination won't be counted.

What makes a good nomination?

The best nominations are honest, clear, and accurate.

 They use real-life examples to showcase how a nominee stands out from the crowd and are tailored to the category you're entering. For example, you don't want to write lots about someone's customer service, if you're nominating them for a sustainability award!

 Avoid generalisations and ensure that every point you make is backed up with evidence. Tell us exactly when your nominee has gone above and beyond and what impact this had had on you and/or Campus Services.

 Before starting your nomination, we recommend:

- Reading the award criteria several times.

- Reminding yourself of the University's values so you can detail how your nominee embodies these.

- Writing down your key points to keep your submission concise and within the word count.

If you would like support with writing your submission, please contact Hannah Chapman, Project Manager, Campus Services (

What is the judging criteria?

The judges will score nominations based on three key criteria:

  • Impact
  • University values
  • Team of Teams.

Here's everything you need to know to ensure your nominee has the best chance of being shortlisted (and hopefully winning!).


The best nominations have a clear focus on the impact your nominee has had or the positive outcomes achieved because of them. There's a specific question on impact for each award category, but strong submissions will provide tangible evidence of results throughout.

 University values

The judges will be looking for submissions that show how your nominee demonstrates the University's values. Some award category questions will ask you directly about this; however, no matter what award category you're entering, your nomination should demonstrate how your nominee embraces these values and how this has led to their success.

 ‘Team of Teams’

The 'Team of Teams' approach is intrinsic to our success in Campus Services. That's why your nomination needs to clearly show how your nominee has embraced this by building strong relationships between colleagues and teams across Campus Services. The best submissions will explain how team building and collaboration has enabled them to achieve a common goal.

How will my nomination be judged?

Each of your answers will be scored from 1 to 4, with 1 being 'below average' and 4 being 'excellent'. Find out more by checking out the Judges' Scoring Matrix
