In 2005, a communications revolution was underway. YouTube was born, internet phones were developed and Google gave us a searchable world map. Technology was bringing people together in unprecedented ways. We recognised that technological developments, and increasing globalisation, would change the way recruitment worked. We saw an opportunity so, in 2005, we left our ICT recruitment roles and launched RIZE. We were passionate about building a client-focused business which would offer the best talent – compliantly – opportunities around the world. Our aim was to combine a professional and personal service. We wanted to have considered, entrenched values, and a culture to support them. And that’s just what we’ve done ever since.
