Aiming Higher awards

Invest in Renfrewshire is calling on employers and entrepreneurs to nominate their rising stars for an Aiming Higher Award.

Thanks to the combined efforts of our business community, career hunters and council, Invest in Renfrewshire has created more than 1,000 new jobs since it launched in 2012. 

Councillor Mark Macmillan, Leader of Renfrewshire Council, said: "We have much to celebrate and many people to thank for their part in combating unemployment and growing businesses in Renfrewshire. These 'Aiming Higher' Awards showcase the talent, enterprise and commitment that will fuel our continued economic success. They also highlight stories of individual ability and determination and reinforce our ambition."

The programme already has more than 1,000 success stories and the Awards offer businesses a tremendous opportunity to highlight the progress, achievement and commitment of their employees and trainees.

The Normandy Hotel in Renfrew will host a glittering celebration of success on 15 June. There, nominees will be honoured for their excellence in preparing for work, achievement in the workplace and career progression. Judges will be looking for rising stars who are making major contributions to their organisations.

There is also an award for Renfrewshire's most promising Entrepreneur,

In all, there are eight award categories ensuring that employers have the best opportunity to formally recognise the calibre of their staff.

The deadline for nominations is Friday 29 April. The shortlist will be announced on 18 May, and the awards celebration itself will take place on 15 June.
