Colleagues should now have received their official invitation to the Staff Awards 2016 ceremony and summer celebration on Thursday 7 July.
With the celebrations getting closer, you can now register your place via Eventbrite.The shortlist will also be announced very soon so look out for the announcement in the next ManMetLife.
The summer party will be an informal social occasion for staff from across the University, with music, entertainment, fizz and canapés and an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of colleagues as they are presented with their Staff Awards.
The ceremony will be hosted by TV personality Gordon Burns. Gordon was the presenter of the popular ITV quiz The Krypton Factor and chief anchorman for the BBC’s nightly regional news programme North West Tonight for 15 years.
There will also be a ‘Festival of Manchester Met’ showcasing the achievements and work of all faculties and professional service teams from across the University, taking place in the Business School, and further celebrations on the roof terrace of the Benzie building after the ceremony.
To help catering staff plan for numbers, it is vital that anyone planning to pop by registers.
