Representing the largest business sector in the North East of England, NEPIC has deep engagement with industry and training providers which enabled the North East to be a prime mover in the development of plans and establishment of a Process Industry National Skills Academy. But NEPIC seeks not only to promote the industry as a career choice for those leaving school and university, but also to recognise the best and brightest young people already working within it.
To recognise and celebrate the region’s young talent from within the process sector, NEPIC is pleased to once more welcome entries for the 2019 Young Achiever Awards. As always, we recognise talent across the industry’s five sectors, awarding a winner under each of the following categories: Biotechnology & Bioprocessing; Pharmaceuticals; Fine & Speciality Chemicals; Commodity & Petrochemicals, and Support & Supply Chain.
The Young Achiever Awards are open to all employees of NEPIC member companies aged between 16 and 35. A winner from each of the five sectors will collect a trophy marking their achievements and receive a cheque for £1000 at the prestigious NEPIC Annual Awards Dinner, held at Hardwick Hall on the evening of Friday 18 January 2019.
Applicants should write an article of no more than 750 words focusing on their career to-date and including career achievements and how the education received, and skills acquired whilst working in the industry, have helped them reach their current career point.
Entries should be submitted electronically, clearly stating your name and chosen sector on the top of the document. Entries should include a completed application form and recent photograph. Please note that applicants should be under the age of 35 as of 31 December 2018.
All entries are to be submitted by close of business on Friday 21 December 2018.
All entrants will be notified early January as to the success of their application.
