Employer Testimonials

“The Port of Tyne is committed to developing young people and this initiative through our partnership with Rising Star is a fantastic opportunity to deliver skills that can ultimately increase young people’s chances of getting a job.
Everyone who graduates from the programme will be guaranteed an interview with the Port for one of the seven apprenticeships. And even those who are unsuccessful will be supported by Rising Star to help find alternative employment.”

“Rising Star is a proactive, forward thinking company who are leading the way in developing recruitment solutions for young people in the borough of South Tyneside.”

“Rising Star have excellent links with employers as a recruitment agency therefore this is added value for any learner… they have an excellent reputation in South Tyneside.”

Candidate Testimonials

“The way in which Rising Star kept in contact with you was a vital part of the process and it was also reassuring to know that you weren’t just another person who went on a course.”

“I would highly recommend Rising Star to any young person who like myself has very limited work experience or none at all to give it a go. It’s only one week out of your life and the support and encouragement you receive during and afterwards is invaluable. The support you receive is excellent, but you must be prepared to put your all into it if you want the best out of it.”

“Rising Star helped with my confidence a lot and I would definitely tell people to give it a go as they have nothing to lose and a lot to gain!”
