Nominated by students, the Enriching Student Life Awards at Cardiff University recognise staff that have made a significant contribution to the student experience. This year, over 350 nominations were judged by a panel of students, Students’ Union staff and University staff, with the winners announced at a black tie award ceremony on 7th May. Dr Catherine Jones was presented with the Employability Award in recognition of the business psychology careers event that she organised with final year psychology undergraduate student, Hannah Chandler. The judges praised the event for introducing students to career options that they had not previously considered. Hannah nominated Catherine for the award but also saw success in her own right as one of three shortlisted nominees for Student Academic Rep of the Year for the College of Biomedical & Life Sciences.
