Are you a job seeker? If so, this FAQ page may be more relevant to you.

Rise To is a career accelerator that helps people who are in the early stages of their career to build and improve their CV, as well as connecting them with jobs and companies.

We connect companies with the best possible candidates for each role, based on the skills, experience and personality they want in a candidate, as well as the candidate’s work preferences. That means no more time-wasting, and no-hassle recruitment.

We offer opportunities for companies to advertise jobs, but we’re so much more! We offer multiple opportunities for you to engage with candidates through brand-building through your online profile, offering open days, work experience or internship programs, training, and more.

We attract candidates who are driven to learn, understand and develop themselves, and seek out the right career for them – just the kind of people you need in your business.

We believe that finding the right candidate is about much more than education and work experience. It’s about seeking out the individuals who match your values, passion and ambitions.

Our matching algorithm matches candidates to companies, jobs, and opportunities based on values, characteristics and experiences, drawn not just from educational and work history, but from non-work experiences that make a person who they are - the sporting achievement that relies on teamwork, or the volunteering that shows real commitment, for example.

For roles that require specific skills or qualifications, you can also filter applications based on those requirements. We also encourage companies to offer training and development opportunities like open days, internships and more – giving back as well as providing opportunities for you and candidates to proactively engage and learn more about each other.

Everything we do is about making it easier for both companies and candidates to find the right match for them.

Companies create an online company profile detailing who they are and what they do. This enables you to build your employer brand amongst users of the site, who can also contact you if you give users that option.

You can then either search candidates on the site, or post job advertisements or other employment opportunities which will be promoted to a targeted audience, based on your requirements. Candidates can only apply if they fulfil your needs, and we promote your jobs to the most suitable candidates using our matching algorithms.

We welcome innovative and entrepreneurial businesses who share our values - from micro to large, in all sectors (no recruiters).

Our candidates are young people who are starting out in their careers. That includes recent school leavers or university graduates, people who are already in their first or second role and looking to develop or change their career, or young people currently at school or university who are thinking about their future and how to get their first step on the career ladder.

  • Full and part time jobs
  • Paid and unpaid work experience and internships*
  • Training opportunities
  • Mentorships
  • Open days
  • And more…

*We permit companies to offer short unpaid work experience programs when it provides a genuine training opportunity focused on developing a candidate’s skills.

Candidates can search for your company or the opportunities you’ve posted, find your profile or job ads through browsing the site, and we will also match and promote companies to candidates based on their preferences.

Alternatively, you can search for candidates and approach them directly to invite them to apply for opportunities (via the messaging service on the site).

We can create a custom package for whatever your needs are. Typically we help a company build out an amazing company profile and offer a managed service to deliver top quality candidates.

If you've got plenty of time on your hands you can self-serve using our competitive ad & search bundles.

To start with, your company profile will include just the data you entered when you signed up. The more you fill out your profile, the more attractive you’ll become to potential candidates as they get a feel for what you’re about and what you can offer as an employer. As you write your profile, the site will prompt you for different elements you need to add about your team, company history, business objectives, and more.

Our algorithm matches companies and opportunities to candidates based on values, qualifications, experience and skills. It's driven by what you’re looking for in a candidate, and their preferences and experiences (preferred sector, location, qualifications, etc.), to ensure a perfect match for everyone.

We take every possible precaution to keep our members’ data safe and secure at all times. Just make sure you choose a password that can’t be easily guessed.
