Yes, you read correctly. B&T is once again on the hunt for the most determined, talented and innovative young guns in the industry, with the entry gates now open for this year’s 30 Under 30 Awards.
Some may already be in positions of leadership, while others may be starting out, but these awards champion those people that go above and beyond the call of duty in the daily working lives, and demonstrate excellence and a vital contribution to their current employer and their determination and desire to progress their careers.
Three outstanding individuals will be recognised for their achievements in each of the 10 categories, as well as a Grand Prix Award for the most influential individual overall. All entrants will also be a part of the People’s Choice poll, to be opened after entries are closed.
