RISE is an innovative and unique business support project that aims to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) across the Sheffield City Region recruit talented graduates. 

Our vision is to bring together graduates who want to work hard and do great things, with businesses with energy and vision who are already looking for fresh talent. 

We support businesses right through the recruitment process, from identifying the need, writing bespoke job descriptions and adverts, running a multi stage assessment and selection process on their behalf and supporting businesses to manage a final interview with the top candidates.  

Businesses: our next cohort in 2019 will begin from October.  If you are interested in taking part, register your interest via our contact form and we will get in touch nearer the time.

Graduates: to be the first to find out when our job applications go live, sign up to our mailing list here.

RISE is a collaboration between Sheffield Hallam University, The University of Sheffield, Sheffield City Region (in particular, the Growth Hub and local authorities) and the private sector.
