Voting has opened today (16th May) for Jersey Finance’s awards initiative designed to recognise the future leaders from across the local financial services industry.
The Rising Stars Awards, now in their third year, celebrate young Jersey talent (age 16 – 30 years) across fourteen industry categories.
This year, two new categories were added to showcase young professionals who have demonstrated commitment to Diversity and Inclusion and Sustainability. The other categories are Accountancy, Banking, Compliance, CSR and Employee Morale, Digital, Funds, Human Resources, Investment Management, Law, Marketing, Operations and Secretarial, and Trust and Corporate Services.
Nominations opened in February for firms to put forward young people that they felt deserved recognition for having made a difference to their workplace, set a strong example in their field of work or drawn on their skills to make a positive impact in the local community. Over 150 young professionals were nominated, of which 42 have been shortlisted by independent judges Jenny Swan, former CEO for Channel Islands business at J. P. Morgan, Jo Ferbrache, Founder of Jo Ferbrache Consulting, and Kevin Lemasney, Head of High-Value Residency Engagement, Locate Jersey.
The public can now vote for the shortlisted candidates via the Rising Stars microsite, and winners will be announced at a ceremony on 29th July at the Royal Jersey Showground.
Commenting on the awards, Joe Moynihan, Chief Executive, Jersey Finance said: “The number of young people who have been recognised for their hard work and dedication through being nominated really shows the incredible pool of talent that we have here on the island. My congratulations go to those who were nominated and especially to those who were shortlisted.”
“It is heartening to see that the island’s young professionals are already demonstrating the skills and commitment that will be needed to support the industry as it continues to grow. I look forward to seeing the community getting involved by casting their votes.”
