The CIH and Inside Housing Rising Stars competition recognises a truly outstanding individual working in housing.
The award showcases the talent and commitment of up-and-coming housing professionals across the industry. Entrants will have worked in the sector for three years or more and who will be progressing in your career and showing real passion, commitment and a desire to drive the sector forward.
This year we have introduced a brand new process which will mean the winner will enjoy more profile and a unique set of unrivalled opportunities to meet and influence decision-makers and get their ideas out into the sector – from a year’s worth of mentoring to guest editing an edition of Inside Housing.
Entry for the 2018 competition closed on February 23.
Our initial shortlist of ten has now been revealed and voting is open! Finalists will now take part in a series of tasks and the winner will be announced at the Housing Heroes Awards.
Each hopeful will publish a blog on our website, before taking part in a Twitter chat hosted by Inside Housing. After this, the shortlist will be whittled down to a final five after a public vote – voting is now open, scroll down to read the finalists’ profiles and register your vote by clicking on the link below.
The final five will take part in a round table discussion with current sector leaders on the challenges and opportunities facing the housing sector, before the winner is announced at the Housing Heroes Awards on 25 June.
