The Student Employee of the Year Awards is a national competition that aims to recognise and promote the outstanding contributions and achievements of students who combine part-time work with their study commitments. Employers are asked to nominate their exceptional students in three different categories; Above and Beyond, Step Up to Leadership and Commercial Impact, these can be either working on or off campus. There is also an employer award where students can nominate their employer.

University of Sheffield received 89 nominations this was our highest number ever received, and was a mix of student and employer submissions. The University of Sheffield received the highest number of nominations, more than any other institution nationwide. This was a huge increase on last year and goes to show what amazing work Sheffield students are doing alongside their studies.
In June the Student Jobshop hosted their SEOTY institutional awards ceremony at Inox Dine located in the Students’ Union where all nominees received recognition for their hard work. Category winners and highly commended awards were announced, closely followed by the announcements of the North East regional awards. Astonishingly University of Sheffield students and employers were awarded 5 out of the possible 8 regional awards!!! These then progressed onto the national level of the competition.
