About the Guild Awards


The Students’ Guild Awards recognise and reward the inspiring and exceptional achievements of student groups, individuals and actions here at Exeter. By looking at the impact they make locally, nationally and internationally, the awards aim to highlight the incredible enthusiasm and commitment that can be seen across the Students’ Guild, from volunteering and representation, to welfare and our local community.

Outstanding Student Staff MemberDown Arrow

The familiar face across campus who goes above and beyond on a daily basis to ensure that the great services and ideas seen within their Guild department are executed smoothly and effectively. They are the campus superstar whose everyday efforts make big differences, without whom the Guild simply couldn’t function in the same way.

What the judges will be looking for: 

  • Evidence of what the nominee has contributed to make a difference to the department they are working for and the customers the departments serves. How has the student staff member gone above and beyond the call of duty?
  • Evidence of how the nominee has driven quality standards in their workplace.
  • Evidence that the nominee has impacted positively on the other staff, student staff and officers that they are working with, the department they are working for and the wider Guild in general. Judges will be looking for actual evidence such as supporting comments from students and staff, or evidence of achieving departmental objectives.
  • Evidence that the student has delivered an exceptional level of customer service within the role.
  • Evidence of a development or innovating idea that has made a significant contribution to the Guild department they are working in. This can be a new idea, process or method of working in the role which has had a benefit to their role, department, membership or wider Students’ Guild.
