Renfrewshire Employability Awards 2017 are open for nominations!

We are delighted to launch the fourth round of the ‘Celebrating Success’ Awards.

It is time again to celebrate the success of our local people who have been supported through our Employability in Renfrewshire Partnership programmes.

Invest in Renfrewshire is all about co-operation. Businesses of all types, people with all sorts of ambitions, the team at Invest and local employability partners have all brought their own strengths to contribute to the success of the programme over the last five years.

Renfrewshire is full of amazing people with immense potential and thousands of unemployed people are supported into work here every year. Nearly 1,000 local businesses have signed up to support the programme, creating work and training opportunities and helping our economy to grow.

Have you employed or trained someone in the past two years who deserves special recognition or who has made a big difference to your organisation? Nominate them for one of our ‘Celebrating Success’ awards.

You can nominate someone in as many categories as you like but you’ll need to fill out a separate form for each person you nominate.

Awards will be made across nine categories:
