Business Development Executive

South, Chichester


Nicholas Roe

I’m a Recruitment Consultant at Give A Grad A Go, specialising in Banking & Finance graduate jobs.

My area of expertise

As a Recruitment Consultantant, I work on a wide range of roles - but my focus is mainly on Finance graduate jobs and Business Development / Sales graduate jobs.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go because of the effort the company has made to innovate in the recruitment industry. Beyond the great company culture and fantastic clients there is a strong ethic of providing a great service to our candidates which is often not found in our competitors.

The worst job I've had

By far, the worst job I've had was working as a hotel bartender, while my colleagues and the guests were lovely the same could not be said for my manager. He was generally horrible to all of us and actually threw a chair at me once. Plus, I was working a 55 hour week which was pretty terrible.
