Nomination Guidelines

Last updated 17th June 2011

Nominations from BCC staff

The Chamberlains is a peer to peer nomination scheme which means you can nominate any person or team to be considered for an award providing you and the nominee(s) are Birmingham city council employees and on the payroll system.

Casual or agency staff are not eligible. Nor staff who have left/retired from the organisation and are no longer in service.

Individuals and Teams may not ‘self nominate’ for example a team leader cannot put their team forward if they have been closely involved in the work which is to be considered by the panel as part of the nomination case. Managers may however nominate teams for whom they are responsible providing they have not been directly involved in their day to day work.

Nominations from members of the public

We have a special category ‘People’s choice for services to the community’ in which citizens of Birmingham outside of the council workforce can nominate their favorite council worker or team.

Perhaps you have received a service from the Council that has particularly impressed you?

Has someone solved an on going problem for you? Made a positive improvement to your circumstances such as a home carer, debt advisor or teacher?. Perhaps someone has improved the community you live in such as a Neighbourhood officer or street cleaner? Or simply brightened your day such as a librarian, crossing patrol warden or swimming pool attendant?

We would love to hear your stories about the special individuals and teams who have delivered you the citizen an outstanding service.

Public nomination form

For all nominators; After you have submitted your Chamberlain nomination it will be acknowledged by a member of the Corporate Recognition team and you will be provided with a unique reference code relating specifically to your nomination.

If you do not receive any confirmation from us within a few days your nomination may not have reached us. Please contact the team to follow up.

Closing date for entries is Friday 17 June 2011.

Good luck!
