NICS Awards 2019

The NICS Awards celebrate the very best of the Northern Ireland Civil Service. Now in its fifth year, the Awards seek to recognise, celebrate and promote the exceptional service, dedication and achievements of staff across the NICS.

“The NICS Awards reinforces our commitment to recognising our staff; the inspirational individuals and teams, the innovators, the people who make the NICS a great place to work. They also help to highlight the achievements of NICS staff at all grades and are a great opportunity for us to learn from each other and share best practice across departments".

David Sterling, Head of the Northern Ireland Civil Service
