Last year I entered the Remote Employment Remote Worker awards and was lucky enough to win the accolade of Remote Worker of the year. The time has come for this year’s call for entries, I won’t be entering again but really recommend other people do.

Remote Worker in association with BT will be shortlisting for semi-finalists during the awards, with finalists being announced at the end of July soon after the entries close. Due to popular demand, they are now offering an individual critique service for entries to any Award Category. They aim to deliver a fair and constructive assessment of your entry application that will help you improve your chances of being shortlisted.
