Homicide case worker Katie Washbourne, winner of UK Worker of the Year 2015, commented:

“I would urge everyone who hears about the competition to log on to the website and enter. It doesn’t cost you a penny apart from a couple of minutes and winning can change your life. It certainly did for me and I also met some lovely people along the way and really enjoyed the journey.”

UK WOTY is open to anyone in the UK who works. It doesn’t matter where you work or what your position and responsibilities are and you can enter yourself or indeed nominate colleagues, friends and family who you think are worthy of recognition of the title.

In the past we have had winners and finalists from so many varied industries and it’s so simple to enter and will only take a matter of minutes. All you need to do is go to and answer two simple questions about what your job is and why you think you or your nominee should win UKWOTY.

Kirk Ehrlich, President of Williamson-Dickie Europe Ltd, said:
