Catherine Watkins

Graduate Recruitment Consultant

I'm a Graduate Recruitment Consultant at Give A Grad A Go, so my role involves matching talented candidates with exciting companies looking to hire graduates in the UK and across the globe.

My area of expertise

I am keeping my area of expertise open for the minute! I love that my role here at GAGAGO enables me to talk everyday to people of all different backgrounds with a huge variety of skills, personalities and interests. I then find it really rewarding to help match them with the kind of role it is that they are looking for - or even some that they hadn't yet considered!

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

Having had a long slog in the job hunt myself I was very lost with direction for what roles I wanted and was blown away with how supportive and tentative everyone I spoke with from GAGAGO was in helping to find me a role. When Claire then suggested I come and work here directly I didn't blink. I love how collaborative the culture is here and how everyone has each other's back (of course with some element of competition!)

The worst job I've had

During first year uni to fund an extensive shopping habit I was taking any part time work I could get - I worked for a catering hospitality agency company which landed me in all sorts of obscure places. This included serving warm pints in Bradford football club, one too many rowdy stag do's and worst of all serving dinner to my own flatmates in our catered halls. They still don't let me forget the hairnet.
