Rising Stars opens for entries

Our annual competition to find the sector’s Rising Stars is now open for entries.

The competition, organised by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) and Inside Housing, recognises up-and-coming professionals in the sector who have commitment and talent.

The winner will receive prizes including a free delegate place at CIH Housing 2016, a VIP invitation to the CIH presidential dinner 2017, the opportunity to guest-edit Inside Housing and a day shadowing the CIH chief executive.

The competition is open to all Chartered Institute of Housing members who have worked in the sector for three years or more.

To enter, applicants need to write 1,000 words on what housing professionals should learn from the past and how this will help the sector adapt in the future.

The judges will select three finalists, who will go on to take part in tasks including a Twitter Q&A, and an interview in front of the judging panel.

The winner will be crowned at the Housing Heroes Awards dinner on the eve of the Housing 2016 annual conference and exhibition on 27 June.

The deadline for entries is 21 March. For more information, visit www.insidehousing.co.uk/risingstars16.
