Entries open for inaugural CIVEA Awards

Entries open for inaugural CIVEA Awards.

The annual CIVEA conference, which brings together leading players from the enforcement sector, has expanded for 2022 to include an awards ceremony for the very first time.

Reflection & Collection, the past, present and future of enforcement is set to be held at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, Covent Garden, London, on Thursday 21st April 2022.

As the primary trade association for civil enforcement agencies in England & Wales, representing more than 95% of the industry, CIVEA encourages all of its members to ensure that Enforcement Agents (EAs) meet high professional standards. The annual CIVEA conference is an opportunity for members to network and discuss important industry topics as well as share best-practice and successful responses to common challenges and obstacles.

The CIVEA Awards will take place directly after the conference and will be accompanied by a black-tie dinner. These awards will reward exceptional outcomes that benefit local communities, especially in a post-pandemic environment, celebrating hard work in areas such as innovation, social value and maintaining high-quality performance in the face of unique obstacles and circumstances.

All categories are open for entries now and include individual awards for training and development, vulnerability support, innovation in enforcement, parking, revenues and Local Authority partnerships.

CIVEA Chief Executive Officer, Russell Hamblin-Boone, says,” Reflection & Collection will discuss the huge strides that have been taken in enforcement operations in recent times, building upon the regulatory reforms of 2014 and demonstrating the dynamic and proactive support provided to central and local government clients, including responses to the coronavirus pandemic. We are very excited to host an awards evening for the first time as part of our annual conference and our judges are keen to hear about all of the forward-thinking, market-leading vision and superior service standards that enforcement firms continuously implement to enhance the civil enforcement profession.”

CIVEA is the principal trade association representing civil enforcement agencies employing around 2000 certificated enforcement agents that operate in England and Wales. CIVEA represents 37 companies that make up over 90% of the entire enforcement industry.

CIVEA’s members work to enforce civil debt on behalf of local authorities and Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) including council tax, business rates, parking fines, magistrates’ court fines, employment tribunal awards, child support payments, B2B and commercial rent arrears. This amounts to over £500 million (half a billion) of unpaid taxes and fines recovered each year at no cost to the public bodies themselves. Each year CIVEA members receive over 3.5 million warrants and court orders.
