Regional Student Employee of the Year (SEOTY) awards – more success for SHU students


We recently told you about our SEOTY awards evening at Sheffield Hallam, which took place in May, and that our winners were being entered into the regional stage of the competition.  Following on from the success of our students and the number of nominations received (96 nominations in total) the Regional winners have now been announced.

The Regional winners from SHU are

  • Ben Plimley for his work at BSKYB in the Step Up to Leadership category
  • Jessica Dodds for her work at Keep Your Fork in the Above and Beyond category.
  • Castor Merino Perez has also won the Highly Commended award at Regional level for his work in Careers and Employment at SHU as a Student Ambassador.
  • Sheffield Wednesday FC are also Regional winners for the Student Employer of the Year for their nomination written by one of our students.

The Regional winners Ben and Jessica have both been invited to take part in the Teach First Emerging Talent Programme on Tuesday 8th July at Brunel University(1-5pm) and invited to the SEOTY Awards dinner (also on to be held on 8th July) at which they will be presented with their certificates.  The National winner will be announced at the awards evening.

This is exciting news for the University and our student employees – we wish them the best of luck and have our fingers crossed for a Sheffield Hallam student 2014 National winner.
