Rachel Forrest

Account Manager

I'm an Account Manager, so my role involves matching talented candidates with exciting companies looking to hire graduates.

My area of expertise

My client portfolio predominantly consists of exciting Tech Startups and Marketing, Advertising & Communications Agencies. However, within these business I enjoy recruiting graduates across a wide range of roles, from Sales to Analysis. I also manage some of our larger global enterprise clients in Technology and FMCG - a real mixture! 

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I always knew I wanted to jump straight into a career after graduating from university. I began seeking Sales and Business Development opportunities, mainly in tech, as I wanted to work in a very fast-paced and rewarding environment. After uploading my CV to the Give A Grad A Go website, and exploring the graduate jobs available, I was offered a business development position for a tech company. However, after coming into the vibrant GAGAGO office, meeting the team, and exploring recruitment in more depth, I quickly realised that managing client and graduate relationships, as well as my own end-to-end projects, was actually the perfect fit for me. 

The worst job I've had

I have been lucky enough to never have had a bad job! Despite working as a horse riding instructor at an equestrian centre for over three years, which involved lots of intense manual labour in all weather conditions, I really enjoyed it and it taught me most of the skills I'll use throughout my career.
