Events Manager

£25,000 - £30,000
London, Maida Vale


William Spilsbury

I work as an Account Manager, specialising in Technology & Digital, and IT, Software & Engineering graduate jobs.

My area of expertise 

The desk I work on has a huge list of clients, ranging from small tech startups to much larger, more established companies. As an Account Manager, I work with a lot of larger SaaS and tech companies, helping them hire graduates into roles ranging from Client Services, Account Management and Sales graduate jobs, to the more technical roles.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I'd just finished writing my dissertation and decided to get on the graduate job hunt, when a friend put me in touch with one of the team at Give A Grad A Go in order for them to help me find a job. Because of a non-profit student employability company that I started with a friend at university, they invited me in for an assessment day (prior to that I'd never considered recruitment). I fell in love with the Give A Grad A Go team!

The worst job I've had

I have been very fortunate, I've always enjoyed and loved all jobs I've held, from being a waiter in a tapas bar, working on a hog roast stall (by far the tastiest), a hand full of bar roles at local pubs or even working in the tea rooms at the National Trust. I've always chosen jobs which I love and enjoy that way it doesn't feel like I'm working (as hard).
