The past two months have shown a string of successes for the Sport and Active Life team, sitting within the Student and Academic Services (SAS), with two members of the team being awarded consecutive ‘Colleague of the Month’ awards for April and May 2018. The staff recognition scheme recognises the excellent work from individuals across the whole SAS division, with individuals nominating their colleagues for their inspiring work, in line with the VITAL values.

In April 2018, Andy Fell was voted winner of the Colleague of the month with Duty Manager Christian Clarke highlighting his desire to go the extra mile and support his team with various tasks. Specifically, Andy is able to support the VITAL value of the SAS for ‘valuing people’ by always making himself available to assist his team/gym members and get tasks completely efficiently and to a high standard. His approachable persona and ability to take the initiative has meant Andy has hit his targets and been a highly valued member of the team.

Andy Fell‘Andy has shown willingness to get tasks done and worked comfortably with whoever he has been tasked to work with […]. When helping others, Andy has used his knowledge to assist and go beyond’ – Christian Clark (Duty Manager)

In May 2018, Daniel Jackson continued the winning success for the Sport and Active Life department, being recognised for supporting all 5 VITAL values of Student & Academic Services. Daniel has taken his new role managing a team of sports assistants with a proactive and enthusiastic approach, leading by example and encouraging his team to do the same. This has seen huge success for the Danielle Brown Sports Centre with pool side workings at an optimum. Daniel’s commitment to the university and the student experience is further highlighted in his role as the University of Leicester Women’s Football club where he was recently nominated for the Coach of the Year Award 2018.

‘his proactive and caring attitude towards his team has lead them to achieve and inspire each other to do better […]. Communication and morale are at a high and the team are thriving under his leadership’. – Aaron Spencer (Duty Manager) Dan Jackson

Being awarded the colleague of the month is a recognition to the hard work that the Daniel and Andy have put in to running our sports services and we would like to give them a huge well done and thank them for this hard work! A big thank you to Aaron and Christian also for taking the time to recognise the hard work of their colleagues.
