BICSc NI Nation Awards – Cleaning Operative of the Year 2019

Friday the 6 September marked the BICSc NI Nation Awards. The event showcased all that was great about the cleaning industry and the people within it.

It was a night to be remembered for the finalists and winners of Cleaning Operative of the Year as they celebrated their achievements.

21 finalists were nominated for the awards, with 7 categories from different sectors within the cleaning industry (Manufacturing, Healthcare, Office, Hospitality, Retail, Education and Supervisor Recognition).

7 winners were chosen from the different sectors and an overall winner was named.

Colm McGrath representative of BICSc NI Nation said: 

“The BICSc NI Nation Cleaning Operative of the Year & Supervisor Recognition awards are growing each year, entries have increased by 50%  on last year’s entries. Sincere thanks goes to all the nominators, nominees & most of all the finalists who made it extremely difficult to pick a winner in each category, it was a packed out event with over 120 attendees. This year the BICSc NI Nation moved from the normal morning slot at the prestigious Belfast City Hall to a mid-afternoon slot which was followed by ‘After Party Celebrations’ which was hugely successful, as there was complimentary food/cocktails/buckets of beer & wine on arrival, thank you to our continually loyal band of sponsors Consumable Products, Carey Floorcare, Zenith Hygiene, Diversey, BUNZL, Kimberley Clarke & BICSc NI Nation.

Congratulations to all the winners & Rhonda Smyth, Aramark on her overall success in being the 2019 BICSc NI Nation Cleaning Operative of the year”
