Purpose of Award

Rising Star Award

Sponsored by Wirral Borough Council, this award recognises an individual, of any age, whose attitude, approach and impact during the year has marked them out as a star of the future. They will have “stepped out” of their expected role to deliver excellent results and customer service.

Judging Criteria

The award is open to any Business to enter who has a registered business trading address in Wirral (Borough of Wirral) or be a Wirral Chamber of Commerce member.

The judges will look for someone who has shown aptitude and ability to progress through the organisation and to potentially be a ‘manager of tomorrow’. They will be a self starter, well motivated and who seeks out opportunities for development. All businesses need to work on succession planning and this individual has shown how he/she can be part of these plans.
