RISE was a hugely successful business support programme aimed at supporting SMEs in the Sheffield City Region to recruit graduates. We helped SMEs overcome the barriers faced in graduate recruitment, equipping them with the tools to become successful graduate employers. RISE has supported more than 225 regionally based SMEs successfully recruit over 200 graduates. Many of those businesses have gone on to report increases in turnover, productivity, innovation and growth as a result. (Read more about their experiences of working with us on our testimonials)
Whilst RISE is no longer actively recruiting SMEs or Graduates we are still passionate about the benefits of recruiting Graduates into local businesses and there are a range of support options available to anyone looking to snap up some excellent Graduate talent.
