Recommend a Rising Star

If you know a potential One to Watch, let us know about them! Taking a few moments to tell us about an outstanding colleague (or colleagues) could set them on a path to make a huge step forward in their career.

A recommendation will not strengthen an application, it's a method to help us spread the word about the scheme. However, for many potential candidates, the knowledge that someone they've worked with thinks they're good enough to apply is the confidence boost they need to submit an application.
