Rare Rising Stars 2018


Rare Rising Stars allows us to recognise and celebrate extraordinary candidates. Each year, we showcase the achievements of the best black students in the UK. Since the development of our Contextual Recruitment System, we have been fortunate enough to be able to shine a light on all outperformers by setting each candidate's achievements in context. We are delighted to be able to recognise the accomplishments of even more candidates, on a wider scale.

We are privileged to encounter incredibly talented young people on a day-to-day basis and work with clients who really care about changing the face of their sectors. We are also fortunate to work with ambitious students at the beginning of their journey into university and the world of work.

This is - incredibly - the tenth year of Rare Rising Stars. Our nationwide search is underway for the stories of endeavour, resilience and passion that will remind us all of quite how many high achieving black students are beacons of excellence and inspiration in communities across the UK.

If you know someone that should be on our radar, please check their eligibility here and nominate them here.

Application deadline: 1st April 2018, 23:59
