Welcome to RISE Day. An initiative aimed at helping young people with barriers to employment

Here at Talent, and alongside Talent RISE, we are pleased to announce a new global initiative aimed at helping young people with the challenges to finding employment.

RISE Day will launch on September 3rd and will involve 300 people around the world volunteering their time to provide support to young people in need.

RISE Day will see our team members from Talent, and our associated charity foundation Talent RISE, take part in a phone call initiative with young people who have registered their details. Young people will receive free support and guidance around employment and will be offered tools and a spot in the Talent RISE database to get access to free workshops, industry events and job opportunities. From today, young people can register their details HERE

In addition to the initiative, two young people who take part in RISE Day will be offered the opportunity for a paid internship at their closest Talent office.

We aren’t forgetting businesses who may want to get involved with this, so if you are a business and this sounds like something your team would want to get behind, please check out the details HERE
