Rising Star’s success story this month is Daniel Farthing. Daniel sought the help of Rising Star and secured an Apprenticeship at Kaplan Financial and has now been offered full time employment with the company as a Credit Controller.


“Rising Star spend time with candidates on their bootcamps and sent us a shortlist of those who are actually interested in our vacancies and have the correct behaviours to succeed. Often we find this is not the case with training companies. We went through the process and by far Daniel Farthing was the standout candidate and from the day he started he has proven to be exceptional.” Alison Howe – National Credit Manager at Kaplan Financial


“So far I have had a great time with Kaplan. I am enjoying the work, the challenges and the opportunities which have been offered to me. Now that I have been given a permanent position, and throughout the course of the apprenticeship, I feel as though I have become a lot more independent within the department”. – Daniel Farthing

In addition, the role allows Daniel to study a further AAT and CIMA qualifications with the company free of charge.


On the recruitment process Daniel said,

The team at Rising Star were extremely helpful and professional from registering with them to their advice and guidance on my career path. I attended two training days which included interview techniques and I found this to be very informative. I am extremely grateful for the position they sourced for me with Kaplan Financial and would not hesitate to recommend Rising Star and Zenith People to anyone”.  – Daniel Farthing


On working with Zenith and Rising Star Alison said ‘I have worked with Zenith People and Rising Star for a number of years to recruit my finance staff. Since completing his apprenticeship, I have made Daniel a permanent member of the team and now could not do without him. A lot is down to Daniel, but without Justine and the team at Rising Star, he would not be working at Kaplan now.’ – Alison Howe


Everyone at Rising Star would like to congratulate Daniel on his success with both his Apprenticeship and securing a permanent position at Kaplan and would like to wish him all the best for the future.
