Award-winning local student

A local student at the University of Northumbria has fought off strong competition to win a top prize. Deborah Smith, who lives in Woolton in Tyne and Wear, won The Best Dissertation Award, which is sponsored by Hays Construction, the leading recruiting expert.

The purpose of the award is to promote, recognise and reward excellence in the field of construction management. Hays Construction recently attended a prizegiving ceremony at the university to present vouchers and a framed certificate to the proud student.

Pam Lindsay – Dunn, Director at Hays, says: “This prize is a small step to reward the next generation for their hard work. Not only is it great to support students pursuing a career in construction management, but we would also encourage students to explore the many employment opportunities that exist locally.”
