How to make a nomination


The application process for the awards is an easy four step process...

1. Short Online Application

Nominations for the awards are initially made through a short online application. Ideally your boss or line manager will nominate you, although we will accept nominations from other colleagues or from yourself.

The initial application consists of a few short questions about the nominee's role and why they deserve to be Manchester's PA of the Year.

We will announce when 2017 nominations are open. 

2. Coffee and a Catch Up

Applicants will then be contacted by a member of Robert Walters or the Manchester PA Network to schedule an opportunity to meet with you and discuss your application. 

In many cases this will be a short meeting over a coffee, where we can discuss some of the reasons you've been nominated and your achievements in your role, although where suitable we can discuss this over the phone.

For teams nominated for PA Team of the Year, we can visit your office and meet with the whole team or you can choose to send a representative for the team for the coffee & catch up. 

3. Endorsement

All applicants need to be endorsed to be considered for the awards. We will contact your boss, or a member of the HR team at your current company, to supply a brief endorsement. This can be a short face-to-face meeting, or phone call.

4. Shortlist interviews

Once the shortlist is announced we will hold panel interviews with all shortlisted finalists. The panel will consist of members of Robert Walters, the Manchester PA Network and key sponsor Make Events. Panel interview dates will be announced shortly. 

Nominations for the 2017 Awards will be open shortly.
