First joint awards dinner looms for Catch and YCF

By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 14 Feb 2019

A first joint awards dinner for Stallingborough-based Catch and YCF is to be held following the merger last year. 

The industrial support organisations will celebrate the successes of people within the processing industries, alongside partner sponsor E3 Recruitment.

Both bodies came together last summer, with both having spun out of regional development agency sector specialist groups for the chemicals clusters.

Peoples Awards will acknowledge individuals that go above and beyond in their roles to drive industry change, personal development and the growth of their companies, and will include the established ConCom Apprentice of the Year award.

Finalists and more than 300 attendees will enjoy an evening of celebrations, from a drinks reception where guests can network with sponsors and peers to a three-course meal, the awards presentation, an after-dinner speaker and a charity raffle.

David Talbot, Catch chief executive, said: “The awards act as great recognition for individuals that work hard within the industries that we support.

“But with so many companies expected to attend, it will also be a great opportunity for people to network and build relationships. And that’s what we’re all about as an organisation! We’re here to support businesses, share best practice and overcome common challenges, whilst creating connections between our members.”

Nominations for the awards are now open and they include; the Young Achiever Award, Outstanding Leader Award, Best Partnership Award and the Skills Project of the Year Award.  Nominations can be put forward by their peers, colleagues and mentors, and the winners will be chosen by the Catch board.

The ConCom Apprentice of the Year award is open to all apprentices in years two, three or four working for a ConCom client or contractor member. The apprenticeship can be in any discipline, any NVQ awarding body and with any training provider.  The winner will receive a trophy and a cheque for £500 and two runners-up will receive of £250 each.

Andrew Pilling, director of E3 Recruitment which specialises in engineering and manufacturing recruitment, said: “Catch is a great organisation which shares new developments and information within the industry, and acts as a voice for many companies, that otherwise wouldn’t have one.

“We were extremely proud to be a partner and sponsor the dinner and the People Awards. We are in the business of people so we know how important it is to recognise people’s achievements. We’re already looking forward to this event and the first year of the partnership.”

The dinner takes place on May 9 at Mercure Hull Grange Park Hotel, from 7pm. Book your place before March 19 and save £25 off the ticket price.  Further information can be found at
