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

Since starting at Give A Grad A Go, I've worked with a complete variety of industries and sectors seeking graduates. I've found that I really enjoy people and relationship-focused graduate roles like account management and business development, and I also love sourcing creative graphic design candidates!

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I wanted to jump straight into a career after graduating from university. After dropping my CV off on the Give A Grad A Go website, and exploring the graduate opportunities available, I was offered a business development position for a tech company! But after coming into the office and meeting the team, I quickly realised that the role of building relationships with graduate candidates in the fast-paced, vibrant Give A Grad A Go atmosphere was definitely the perfect fit for me. I'm very excited to see where I can progress within the Give A Grad A Go!

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.
