The U&T Awards will honour the hard work and best practice of individuals, teams and firms drawn from across the energy, water and telecoms sectors. Award nominations are now open and the categories have nearly doubled from eight to 15. This year the scheme will have five supercategories:

  • Water
  • Energy
  • Telecoms
  • Partnership, Outsourcing and Customer Service
  • Leadership and change (rewarding the achievements of the senior execs and decision makers)

The awards highlight teams and individuals, from both the utilities and telecoms sectors, as best-in-class in the credit risk and collections profession. The ceremony therefore attracts firms and individuals from across the country, in an evening that marks the biggest gathering of collections and credit risk professionals in both sectors.


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.


At last year’s event some of the big winners included EDF Energy, Talk Talk Business and Tesco Mobile, First Utility and The Sigma Financial Group.


The night will follow the soon to be launched Household Credit Conference, formerly known as the Utilities & Telecoms Conference, which takes place on the same day at the same venue.
