Categories

The competition categories are reviewed annually by the Executive Steering Group to ensure we are reflecting the span of skills and competencies that make you so great at what you do.

It is important that you look at the role description and not just the category titles because titles vary from company to company. We want to ensure you get the maximum benefit from participation, by matching you with fellow participants with similar levels of responsibility.
