Are you a Rising Star?

Rising Stars is Essex’s brand new student development scheme. We're working with top graduate recruiters to help you gain valuable experience and develop employability skills you never knew you could master.

Being a rising star isn't about knowing the right people or being from a privileged background, it’s about unlocking your potential and taking every opportunity to aim high.

Rising Stars is all about recognising your talent so register your interest if you want to break the mould.
