THE Scottish Public Service Awards Ceremony will be held tonight (December 5) at the Scottish Parliament.
Launched in 2014, the awards intend to recognise the diversity and cultural significance of public life in Scotland.
The ceremony aims to reward the contribution made in Scotland’s civic society by the civil service, Scottish Government, the Third Sector, Scottish Parliament and the responsibilities of public agencies, including NDPBs such as SEPA, national bodies such as Police Scotland, the Scottish Prison Service and the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh, as well as UK-government departments with a significant presence in Scotland.
This year includes categories such as The Campbell Christie Public Service Reform Award, The Emerging Talent Award, Lifetime Achievement award, the Commercial Partnerships award and many more. The nominees have all been selected, with both the Scottish Government and Parliament being nominated for The Communications Award this year. The Lifetime Achievement award will be chosen by the judging panel.
Following the success of the previous years, the Scottish Government expect this year to be just as enjoyable and prosperous. Holyrood Magazine have been a media partner and event organiser for the awards this year.
The ceremony will begin at 6:30pm in the main hall.
