CIOB announces Rising Star award category for 2020

4 June 2020

Applications encouraged from candidates in the industry for seven or fewer years.

The CIOB has announced a brand new ‘Rising Star’ category for this year’s Construction Manager of the Year Awards (CMYA).

This new category is for rising stars who have been in the construction industry for seven years or less, and demonstrated excellence in their work, the industry and among their peers.  Specifically, the CIOB encourages those that have made a real difference to the business or projects they have been involved with.

The CMYA has a reputation for showcasing the very finest talent in construction and is unique in the sector as these awards celebrate and recognise the achievements of the person and not the project.

CIOB chief executive Caroline Gumble said: “CMYA has been a unique barometer for management and leadership talent in our sector for more than 40 years, and I am delighted that this new category will showcase the best of the emerging talent in our industry, while giving the opportunity for firms to recognise the achievements of those at every level.”

You can submit an entry yourself, or your employer can submit an entry. The judges will be looking for evidence of contribution within the time frame of the last 12 months, and 500 words on why you wish to be nominated. More information on the entry requirements is available here. This award is free to enter.

Applications close on 29 May 2020 at 5pm, with finalists being announced on 1 July. The first ever CIOB Rising Star presentation will occur alongside the CMYA celebration in London on 30 September 2020.

The award will be presented alongside the CMYA celebration in September
