Account Executive - Branding

£20,000 - £24,000


Alex Anderson

My current role within Give A Grad A Go is as a Recruitment Consultant for the Corporate Desk. I work mostly on technology and digital graduate jobs, often within emerging markets like FinTech, PropTech and EdTech.

My area of expertise

The Corporate Desk works predominantly within the financial realm, but often in combination with innovative, high-growth indsutries like FinTech and InsurTech. I work on a range of graduate jobs within these industries - from IT roles to Business Development and Project Manager graduate jobs - meaning that I get to speak to a number of very different candidates on a daily basis!

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

Having worked in Executive Search, I knew that I enjoyed interacting with people, building strong relationships, and being able to help candidates find a job they love! I was unsure about going into mainstream recruitment, but having looked at my background Give A Grad A Go invited me in to meet the team. I immediately fell in love with the company culture, the people and the various ways in which Give A Grad A Go goes the extra mile to help candidates secure their dream career. Following a successful set of interviews, here I am!

The worst job I've had

I can honestly say that I've been lucky enough to have enjoyed every one of my previous roles - from working over the summer at McDonald's after my A-Levels, to leading a team and training at new cafe openings within M&S, I have worked with some amazing people and look back fondly at every experience.
