A diverse shortlist this year features the outstanding firms, teams and individuals in their respective fields of compliance, collections, customer service, technology and more.

 

Once again, the scheme will honour the hard work and best practice of teams and companies drawn from across the energy, water and telecoms sectors.

 

Shortlisted entries will soon be judged by the U&T Awards’ independent judging panel, which includes Matt Mattock, collections strategy manager at Telefonica UK; Steve Banks, head of domestic credit risk at npower; Annette Hardcastle, head of residential credit and collections at British Gas, and Amanda Scovell, cash and debt manager at Thames Water.

 

Last year’s awards gathered more than 250 senior professionals to the event who collectively raised around £2,500 for the UK’s blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan.

 

This year the event will be raising money for The Children’s Trust, a charity that runs a range of specialist care, education and therapy services for children and young people from across the UK, including the UK’s largest rehabilitation centre for children with brain injuries.

As well as headline sponsor Capita, Court Enforcement Services and Lowell are sponsoring this year’s awards.

 

Household Credit Conference

During the day before the awards, Credit Strategy will host the Household Credit Conference, previously known as the U&T Conference.

 

The conference, for which Capita is also headline sponsor, has been rebranded to reflect and equally address the differing needs of water, energy and telecoms credit and collections professionals.

 

The agenda will address the shared problems facing water, energy and telecoms professionals such as data sharing and GDPR.

 

In the water stream we’ll be looking at PR19, domestic open water and forbearance; in the energy stream the OFGEM/CMA report and SMART metering; and for telecoms, future billing models and tariffs.

Both the Household Credit Conference and the U&T Awards will be held on Thursday, October 5 at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel.
