SERC Business and Innovation Manager Emma Finney Shortlisted for Chartered Manager of the Year.
South Eastern Regional College (SERC) Business Innovation Manager Emma Finney, from Moira, has been shortlisted for Chartered Manager of the Year 2021.
The Award, from the Chartered Management Institute, recognises and celebrates the outstanding achievements and contributions Chartered Managers bring to their workplace and their own personal development.
Emma has been shortlisted due in no small part to her tireless work during the pandemic to support those furloughed or facing redundancy. Emma and her team made a significant impact on the local economy: 813 people were upskilled across 46 different programmes of study, to the value of £1 million. Five graduate programmes were delivered, 82 graduates participated on Future Leaders Programmes, Data Analytics, Digital Marketing, and a Graduate Get Social programme in collaboration with the Social Economy sector in Northern Ireland.
Emma said, “I am delighted to have been shortlisted for Chartered Manager of the Year, which recognises outstanding achievement and contribution. I feel very honoured to have been nominated by my SERC colleagues.
She added, “The award underlines the importance of continuous personal and professional development, something which I strive to keep up to date and this achievement is an endorsement of that. I set myself high standards and it’s amazing for this to be recognised.”
Emma is shortlisted along with three others from across the UK. Winners will be announced in November 2021.
