After graduating university in summer 2020, and competing in a challenging job market, I was offered an amazing opportunity at Rise Technical. I was able to join a young and dynamic team, of highly motivated and successful individuals, who have encouraged me to strive to be the best version of myself; and aim to achieve goals I could only dream of. My manager, Director, teammates and founders of Rise have provided a supportive environment and want to achieve success and my goals as much as their own. A key achievement of mine was my first placement, not only my first placement as an associate but one of the first and record-breaking bookings for Rise Energy Germany. Being one of the founding members of the Europe team, as given me the opportunity to explore and understanding a new and challenging market and motivates me to making the Rise Energy international team a great success. My goals are to own my first house within the first 2 years of my career and begin to build a property portfolio, to be promoted to principle within 2 years and to lead my own team in the international market.Read more

Getting my first post-graduation job during a Pandemic was daunting, I managed to secure a role as an Associate at Rise and didn’t even realize the opportunity I had been given. Since starting 3 months ago I have become more confident, more positive and have never been more motivated when it comes to progressing my career. Rise has provided a platform to success and working in an office filled with like-minded and driven colleagues offers the perfect environment for personal growth. Since my very first day I have been supported by all of my colleagues, from fellow associates to directors of the business. I am almost certain you would not find a more positive and empowering place to work than Rise. A key achievement of mine is making my first placement in my first 2 months of working at the business, I was also the first consultant to place in the Netherlands. Being a founding member of Rise Energy Europe is something I take deep pride in and working a new market offers the challenges I need to keep me motivated. My goals include getting promoted (by Jan 2022), replacing my ugly brown kitchen, and buying my 2nd property within the next 5 years (sounds crazy but totally feasible at Rise)!Read more

After moving to Bristol following my university graduation, I was keen to start my career with an ambitious, driven and energetic company where I was in control of my career progression and earnings and had access to huge future opportunities. Rise has offered me all of this whilst being a fun, diverse and integral environment where I enjoy coming to work every day. I have a great support network and am able to get advice from anyone in the office including our directors and CEO. Rise has helped me realise my goals and given me the platform to actually achieve them. A major achievement for me has been the growth in confidence Rise has given me. Prior to starting Rise, I lacked a bit of self-confidence and was quite shy. Since being at Rise I have felt my confidence grow massively in all aspects of my life whilst being able to successfully progress my career. Rise has given me the opportunity to push myself despite this being my first job in recruitment – I’ve mentored associates and delivered training sessions and am now on track to my senior promotion after just over a year! Next year I will be looking at buying a new car which I never thought I’d be able to save for! I also aim to start saving for my first property, and to progress up to manager level by the end of 2022 with the hope of moving out to Australia when we open that office!Read more

Thoughts about Rise: Working at Rise is an opportunity to work with likeminded people who are all committed and driven to achieving their personal goals. You are pushed to be the best version of yourself and are given the opportunity to have massive earnings which will allow you to dramatically improve your life.

I then went on to hit my quarterly budget straight after my promotion and the earnings I made from that allowed me improve my life outside of work.Future goals: My future goals are: To progress to Manager by the end of 2022, Buy my first property, Be earning a 6 figure salary by only my 2nd year in recruitment.Previous background: Achieved a 2:1 degree in History from the University of Southampton and started working at Rise straight after university.
