Our mission

We want to bring education and the workplace together, for the benefit of students, professionals and teachers.

Focusing on the creative industries, our events and platform gives students and graduates the best careers advice, learning resources and work opportunities.

As a result of this, companies efficiently meet talent and universities increase the employability of their students.

All our work originates from the following principles:

  • To improve the quality of careers advice for all.

  • To increase diversity in the workplace.

  • To build a self sustaining careers network.

Our story

FutureRising was established in 2011, it was setup by Adam Oldfield and Donald Fogarty out of their own frustrations at getting a job. After lots of research, events, testing and focus groups we have grown to fully understand the gap between education and the workplace.

This has put us in a position to provide the tools that everyone needs to create, improve and define their careers. Thanks to investment from senior industry figures and partnerships with companies and universities, we are well on our way to providing a complete service centred around a free accessible platform.

Our current products and services are for the creative industries, expect us to expand on all fronts soon.
