Rise takes a very flexible approach to the services we offer, based on the understanding that no search or recruitment process is ever the same. Our aim is to provide an efficient solution based on specific requirements and situations.

We do not generically advertise roles or trawl CV banks. Instead, we provide a proactive search solution that will identify, attract and develop the best talent for clients through a focused approach.

Understanding that every assignment is different, we work across the entire spectrum of approaches from contingency right through to integrated and retained search.


Engaging, pipelining and pooling talent for longer term projects can provide a designed solution for skill shortages. This focused methodology from a single recruitment partner can help build the brand and attract people before roles arise, minimising internal resource and time to hire.


We offer individual research packages including company and candidate mapping, reward, benefit and market insight. All of our research is carried out in-house by a consultant with an in-depth knowledge of the sector.
