“It is the greatest privilege being part of the Talent Rise Family.  I too am passionate about supporting young people gain employment who it might normally be really tough for.

“The youth unemployment crisis in our society is getting worse every day.  This issue needs a full community response and I strongly believe that the Tech and IT Communities are best positioned to make a significant positive change to this crisis. We need the Tech/IT Community to RISE UP and give young people hope for a better future.”

“Unfortunately some people aren’t given solid foundations to start with and socially certain demographics have less opportunity to thrive.  I’m so pleased to be with Talent RISE so I can give back to the community. The role will certainly be a new career challenge that will provide me with immense personal satisfaction.”

“Talent RISE supports young people to access sustainable employment opportunities. Employment is a platform that equals stability, provides a sense of achievement, and motivates purpose and drive. This ultimately enhances self-belief which is the foundation success is built on”

“The transition from school into the workforce is a difficult process for many young people. Employer expectations have increased in the last decade, making it hard for young people to find a job. Our youth need employers to give them a chance to reach their full potential. At Talent RISE, we support our young candidates throughout their journey to meaningful employment, and beyond, through up-skilling and social support. I’m thrilled to be part of the RISE team – an organisation with the core value of helping our youth change their lives for the better.”

“I truly believe in what Talent RISE does at the core. At present, youth unemployment rates in the Northern Suburbs of Adelaide sit at a staggering 18.4% – to me that’s a heartbreaking figure that needs organisations like Talent RISE on board to contribute to its improvement. I’m so excited to be able to help establish Talent RISE’s footprint in Adelaide, and continue its mission to positively impact marginalised youth across the globe.”

“In New Zealand, there is a staggering number of rangatahi (youth) who are NEET (Not in employment, education, or training).  At Talent RISE we understand that the transition into the work force comes with many challenges. Our kaupapa (purpose) is empowering rangatahi by bridging the gap between unemployment and employment. Together as a team we tautāwhi (assist) on their journey through a combination of tautoko (support) and guidance, enabling a sense of belonging and purpose by creating opportunities for them to enter into the workforce.  I’m excited to be part of the Talent Rise team and look forward to making a difference on the lives of the rangatahi  in New Zealand.”
