Hays’ commitment to the built environment

Awards and associations


Not only does Hays source quality staff for some of the largest public sector and commercial organisations in the built environment, but our team of experts also works closely with key institutions to recognise industry professionals and help encourage young people to enter the industry.


The CIBSE 2014 Building Performance Award, sponsored by Hays, giving projects the opportunity to be recognised for outstanding achievement in key sectors. 

Hays Building Services have worked in partnership with CIBSE since 1995 and we are the only specialist recruitment business approved by CIBSE. This is a unique relationship in the sector and the partnership provides us with a number of ongoing activities that gives us unrivalled networking and PR opportunities.

RICS Awards

The RICS Awards sponsored by Hays showcase the most inspirational regional initiatives and developments in land, property, construction and the build environment over eight catagories. 

Building Awards 

The Building Awards are an established annual celebration for construction professionals. This year Hays will be sponsoring the Consultant / Surveyor of the Year Award. The sponsorship serves as an opportunity to reward best practice and innovation in the sector.

Construction Manager of the Year

These awards are an important event in the industry calendar and continue to grow year-on-year, giving UK construction managers the recognition they deserve. For the second year running Hays is sponsoring the £7-10m New Build and Refurbishment Projects category.

University Awards

Hays sponsors 70 awards annually for universities across the UK covering a variety of disciplines across the built environment. The awards recognise outstanding achievement of graduates looking to enter the industry, rewarding effort for leading projects and pieces of coursework.

BIFM Awards

The BIFM Awards is the UK’s premier awards for the facilities management industry. Hays has been a category sponsor for a number of years and continues to support this event, which recognises talent within the FM profession.

Prince’s Trust Construction and Business Services Leadership Group (CBSLG)

Hays works closely with The Prince’s Trust, helping to find work for disadvantaged young people in the construction industry. These young people participate in The Prince’s Trust’s ‘Get into Construction’ training schemes. The courses teach vital skills including plastering, bricklaying, and painting and decorating. Graduates from the scheme qualify for a CSCS card.

Hays works to help find scheme graduates temporary or permanent work to get their first step on the ladder to a rewarding construction career. Our strong relationships with contractors means that we can offer the graduates a range of work opportunities, while helping organisations to fulfil their corporate social responsibility commitments.
