Employers may nominate more than one young manager from their organisation.

Bespoke development

The winner of the Pattenmaker Young Manager Award receives expert support to create a varied and bespoke personal development programme, including off-site courses and a programme of customised work placements designed to broaden their perspective. The training programme will be developed in full consultation with the winner’s line manager or employer.

The Award will be presented to the winner by the Lord Mayor of London at the Pattenmakers’ Annual Banquet held at the Mansion House in January 2020. The winner will also receive the Freedom of the Company, with the opportunity to apply for the Freedom of the City of London at a later stage.
