What is Rise?
RISE is an initiative running across the whole of our city region. RISE aims to increase graduate employment in small and medium sized Businesses (SME’s) by providing an end to end recruitment process and matching service to high calibre graduates. We also deliver ongoing support to you while the graduate is in post.
Our vision is to bring together graduates who want to work hard and do great things with businesses that have energy and vision and are already looking for fresh talent. Your business is eligible to apply to RISE if you are an SME employing no more than 250 people and you pay business rates to one of the nine SCR local authorities in the region.
