Rising Star, sister brand of Zenith People, is a recruitment business totally focussed on helping young people find employment. Whatever your career aspirations and whatever your starting point, we’ll help you map out the steps you need to take to achieve your employment goals.

We work with a broad range of employers who are looking to recruit young talent for their organisations – so whether it’s an apprenticeship, a traineeship or full time employment you’re looking for, we can help you find the opportunity that’s right for you.

We’ll work with you on your CV, interview technique, presentation skills, or whatever aspect of the recruitment process you need help with to ensure you secure that opportunity. And if it’s further training you need to help you climb that first rung on your chosen career ladder, we’ve got a huge network of contacts we can signpost you too.

“The whole Rising Star team were excellent! I got on with them really well. We could all have a laugh but when we needed to crack on with the work we did so. It was a good balance of fun and seriousness.”
