Submit for an Award

Every year the New Zealand Association of Graduate Employers (NZAGE) recognises excellence throughout the graduate and youth employment space through the annual NZAGE Industry Awards.

The Industry Awards are a way to recognise and celebrate the work of our members as leaders in the profession of graduate and youth recruitment.

At our Industry Awards Dinner the category winners are revealed and awarded their NZAGE Industry Award. Winners of the Industry Awards share insights into their organisation’s submission to the NZAGE community in our forum events that are held throughout the year.

All categories require a submission in either Word, PowerPoint or PDF outlining the work the organisation has undertaken. The categories of Best Careers Service, Best Careers Service Professional and Best Graduate Professional are calculated by our statistician based on the NZAGE Survey results.

Submissions for the 2020 Industry Awards are now closed.
