At Rising Star we don't overcomplicate things and we certainly won't waste your time. There are five simple steps to success... follow them and 'the jobs a good un' as they say!

Employer Testimonials

“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.”

“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.”

“Zenith’s Rising Star Bootcamp has proven to be a huge success and the calibre of candidate sent to us was without doubt of a far higher standard than what we have come to expect at that level.”

Candidate Testimonials

“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!”

“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.”

“I attended the first ever Rising Star Bootcamp and found it extremely inspirational. It helped me boost my confidence and has played a key factor in getting to me where I am today.”
