RISE, run in partnership with the City Region’s Universities, aims to increase graduate employment in small and medium sized enterprises, introducing graduates as interns to businesses which are looking for an injection of energy and new ideas. The Sheffield City Region makes a contribution to the funding alongside a host of other partners.

The project is part of the Growth Hub offer to businesses across the city region and includes a contribution from the Government’s Local Growth Fund resources which is part of the Government’s continued investment in the Northern Powerhouse.
