To actively encourage and support the development of talent within the Cambridgeshire region, we are delighted to announce the return of the Young Achiever of the Year Award for 2019.

The award is presented to a young person in the Cambridge community who has made great progress in their career through outstanding professional development both in study and contribution to the work place.

Introduced in 2016 by past CII President Tom Davidson, the award is presented at the annual dinner in December. This award is kindly supported by Employment Specialists Ltd.

We are inviting nominations from all employers in the Cambridge area for any person, whether they are an institute member or not, under the age of 35 as of 31st December 2019.

The nomination can be made by anyone in a company and should be made via the nomination form.

The closing date for nominations is 31st October 2019. The adjudication of the award will be made at a meeting of the Cambridge institute council; the decision of the council is final.

The award will be presented to the winner at the Insurance Institute of Cambridge Annual Dinner, which takes place on 13th December 2019. The winner will receive:

  • The accolade of becoming the young achiever of the year
  • £200 contribution to their ongoing professional development through CII supported study
  • Free ticket to the Cambridge Annual Dinner

Three runners up will also receive:

  • £100 towards CII supported study

There are some very talented people in our area and this award is an excellent opportunity for local companies to recognise the hard work and dedication of some of their younger employees.

Entries from all local employers, large or small, are welcomed. So if you know someone deserving of recognition, let us know!


The judges will be looking for someone who has:

Proactively developed themselves during the last twelve months either through completing institute examinations or through any other form of professional or vocational study, and who has also during the same period:

- Either successfully contributed to a work-based project of benefit to their business, or

- Successfully participated in a community-based project that brings the insurance profession into good repute, or

- Has made a significant contribution to the success of their team with a performance which considerably exceeds the expectations normally associated with someone of their age and experience.
