The Rising Stars Awards offers an excellent way to find and celebrate driven, committed and passionate individuals, who are making their contribution to ensuring a bright future for the industry.
“The awards recognise individuals’ achievements through the early stages of their career and across a wide range of roles. Retailers of all sizes in all areas of the sector are encouraged to enter.”
