Our aim is to help your business grow and free up your time so you can spend it on the things that matter, most importantly working most efficiently and most effectively on your business.



Rising is purposely a small business, focusing on quality and building long term, value add business relationships with its clients rather than volume. Our clients vary in size, having revenues ranging $50K to $11M, and they include startup businesses, retail, wholesale, service, private and publicly (historically) listed businesses operating in a number and broad range of industries.



Being an external service provider, and because of our size and structure, Rising is extremely well positioned to immediately provide a flexible resource tailored to your needs that can be scaled up at short notice.

Also, Rising can be responsive and adaptable to immediate and future needs in areas such as the following:

- number of hours it's engaged for with no minimum hours requirement

- timing of when the work is completed (ie day specific, over the week, month etc)

- invoice terms and payment timing 

- the scope and range of services provided
