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 over-achievers by setting each candidate's achievements in context. We are delighted to now be recognising the achievements of more candidates, on a wider scale.

We are privileged to encounter incredibly high achievers 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.

Now in its tenth year, we are once again pleased to be able to share the stories of our ten Stars - stories of ambition, resilience and passion. We hope that this celebration of excellence continues to inspire young black students to contribute to their communities and pursue their dreams.

Our nationwide search made it clear that there are many more high achievers to be discovered. Our judges Sophie Chandauka, Trevor Phillips OBE and Jean Tomlin OBE had the unenviable task of selecting ten finalists from yet another remarkable list of black students.

We aim to continue to develop a community of excellence by sharing the stories of our ten Stars who are role models for their own generation.
