Welcome to the world of Talent RISE

Welcome to Talent RISE

Talent RISE is our charity foundation. RISE offers education and job-ready programs to young people with barriers to employment and works closely with our clients to source job opportunities and training.

We do this by providing education, training, life skills and opportunities to help young people gain independence and purpose through employment. 

We work with young people aged 16-25 years old, who are experiencing challenging barriers to employment, and also work closely with our client partners to source training, job opportunities and host workshops.

We are a small but mighty team with team members based in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, and Wellington. Although we are geographically separated, we are all very passionate about what we do and support each other through the successes and the challenges that come with our work with young people!

I feel very proud to be part of such a passionate team and love seeing the difference and positive impact our programs and one-on-one support makes to the lives of the young people we work with.

Our values at Talent are at the core of everything that we create and how we work together.

Here's a bit about how we're walking the talk in Talent RISE

Lead the way

We aim to be a real force in the fight to tackle youth unemployment, influencing and inspiring the corporate sector to challenge and change attitudes and bias. We actively connect and engage with corporate partners to create awareness of the issue and source opportunities to allow young people to thrive.

Strive for better

We are always looking for new ways to enhance our program and impact and love developing new partnerships with organisations who can help us make a bigger difference to the lives of young people.

Give a damn

We believe that all young people deserve a chance and we care deeply about doing our bit to tackle youth unemployment. We coach and mentor young people from many different backgrounds to help them gain skills and confidence and then advocate for them with employers to ensure they are successful in that all important first job!

Uplifting the mana of rangatahi Māori and pasifika who are NEET through training, development and meaningful employment is at the forefront of everything we do here in Aotearoa”. We’ve been very fortunate that we have been able to transition 2 outstanding rangatahi/young people graduates from our programme into the business, creating a space for a rangatahi lead programme delivered by rangatahi for rangatahi! Proving we are really leading the way here in team RISE

When passion and purpose meet, magic happens – that is what I love about our RISE team. We believe in the power of young people and their potential, and we thrive in sourcing opportunities to help them create positive futures for themselves.
