Winner: Freya Startup
Administrator - Wellbeing, Directorate of Academic and Student Administration
"In the Disability Service, we work with hundreds of students with a huge range of needs, across their whole university experience. Freya has the ability to hold all of these different threads in her mind, to think about the needs of all students, whilst always appreciating and respecting the unique situation and potential of every individual."
Business and External Engagement Administrator, Oxford Brookes Business School
"Hada dedicates herself to her work and colleagues with amazing enthusiasm. She is indefatigable, with no thought of personal reward, but only with the drive to make other people happy. Last Christmas, she organised a ‘warm clothing’ collection amongst staff for La Bestia migrants in Mexico, which she personally delivered."
Head of Residential Services, Directorate of Estates and Campus Services
"Jayne is always looking for opportunities to contribute. During the Covid-19 crisis she offered to help deliver supplies to vulnerable residents, arranged for leftover bags of pasta to be provided to students in halls and also offered to help a local community group recruit volunteers for their projects. She is a true pillar of strength and support."
Security Officer, Directorate of Estates and Campus Services
"Tony works on the gate to the car park at the Clerici Building. He welcomes most visitors to the University and prides himself on getting to know colleagues, governors and students. He helps colleagues and others find parking spaces, and especially supports those with disabilities to get on to campus. He is very caring and does a great job."
