JCI Manchester, is set to launch a new award category to celebrate Manchester’s thriving hospitality scene. The Manchester Young Talent Awards, hosted by the group, are back for a seventh year and are giving the growing industry a chance to line up against the best talent in Manchester.
The group has seen a marked increase in involvement of the industry and JCI will recognise the outstanding efforts across the sector.
JCI Manchester 2016 President, Paul Widger said
“We are really excited to launch the new award. We regularly work with the sector to host the events and the talent and focus of individuals is exceptional. The Manchester Young Talent Awards seek to recognise the passion and growth of this sector.
“Each year we are blown away by the level of the applications and by the support of Manchester’s business community. Both elements show that Manchester embraces its own talent and has a great desire to celebrate the achievements of its up-and-coming stars. It also demonstrates that JCI Manchester is at the forefront of leading the charge on showcasing (not just to Manchester but nationally) that Manchester has talent – big talent!
“The level of talent we have showcased in the past has gone on to bigger and better things and have thanked JCI Manchester for the stepping stone along the way. We shouldn’t forget the value of external recognition in kindling the self-belief of even our greatest talent.”
The awards have grown each year, receiving a record number of nominations in 2015. They recognise professionals across sectors and last year featured winners from Sequre, MCFC, theEWord, JMW, Gresham Wealth, Capital Properties, Benchmark International, Instinct Resourcing and Ampersand Commerce.
Nominations are now open, as of 1st June 2016, and will recognise up to eleven outstanding individuals between the ages of 18 and 40 who exemplify the best attributes of Manchester’s young people. JCI Manchester will present the Young Talent Awards for 2016 at a packed Awards Dinner on 17th November at the Imperial War Museum Manchester.
Winners will be selected by a panel of independent judges who are respected members of the Manchester business/professional community. The deadline for entries is 1st September with the shortlist being announced shortly afterwards.
