The annual Unitemps University College London Awards took place on Monday 31st July marking the branch’s first in-person awards ceremony since the pandemic. The day saw the team celebrate the hard work and achievements throughout 2022 – 2023.
The awards opened with a few words from UCL’s Chief People Officer, Donna Dalrymple, and a testimonial from hiring manager Thalia Anagnostopoulou. Donna Dalrymple’s opening words set the tone for the evening, acknowledging the challenges and triumphs that the year had brought. Her speech emphasised some of this year’s numbers and the growth within the Unitemps branch.
Then followed a testimonial from Thalia Anagnostopoulou, adding a personal touch to the event. She shared anecdotes of overcoming obstacles, the unity between Unitemps workers and hiring managers and the supportive environment that Unitemps provides. Her speech served as a testament to the growth opportunities and nurturing atmosphere that Unitemps UCL offers.
Throughout the evening, awards were presented in various categories, ranging from Student Ambassador of the Year to Creative Candidate of the Year. The winners and runners-up collected their awards, their hard work acknowledged by enthusiastic applause and cheers from their colleagues from wider the HR team and the rest of the University.
The event was followed by some light refreshments and networking. The annual Unitemps Awards of 2023 was a reminder that, even in challenging times, the Unitemps community thrives through the dedication and commitment of its people, shaping a future of continued success and achievements.
