2020 Dundee Citizen of The Year


19th December 2019

The Search continues for the 2020 Dundee Citizen of the Year.

Each year Dundee City Council chooses a volunteer from the community to highlight their work and selfless efforts by naming them Citizen of the Year.

This award is a way for the city to pay tribute to citizens who have made an outstanding contribution to Dundee.

Communities, businesses and individuals have just over three weeks to nominate someone for this award.

Encouraging citizens across the city to nominate someone for this award, the Lord Provost Ian Borthwick said: “Dundee has so many people that do fantastic work and do not get recognised.

“In choosing Dundee’s Citizen of the Year the judges look in particular for selfless service to a voluntary body or the community or someone whose service activities bring distinction and quality to everyday life in Dundee.

“We need your help to find someone who time and time again make a selfless contribution to everyday life in Dundee, often without any thanks.

“Please help us celebrate their achievements by nominating them for citizen of the year.”

Any nominee must live in the Dundee City Council area.

Forms are available from www.dundeecity.gov.uk/service-area/corporate-services/democratic-and-legal-services/dundee-citizen-of-the-year or by telephone on 01382 434444.

Nominations close on December 31 2019, with the winner announced early next year.

Dundee City Council

Dundee draws skilled workers from a 60-minute catchment population of 640,000 and has a local population of over 140,000. The availability of a large pool of highly skilled labour is a key feature in the Dundee economy. Flexibility in the labour force is currently more prevalent in Dundee than in Scotland as a whole. All forms of labour market flexibility - part-time, temporary employment, self-employment and shift work - are widely operational within the city. Labour force stability in the city is excellent, enabling companies to plan with confidence. Labour turnover levels are less than 5% and absenteeism averages 2%.
