Graduate Research Associate

£23,000 (OTE £30,000)
London, Shoreditch

PLEASE CONTACT

Lizzie McFaull

I'm a Candidate Resourcer, so I spend most of my time on the phone to candidates, learning about their experience, education and career goals, then thinking about which graduate jobs they’d be suited to!

My area of expertise

As a Resourcer, I don't specialise in any particular sector, but my background is in fashion and languages so I love working on positions where these are relevant; such as Property & Retail and Fashion & FMCG.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I originally applied for a role through Give A Grad A Go, but after speaking to the team and coming in to interview, I found that I loved the friendly environment in the office and decided that it was definitely the place I wanted to work! 

The worst job I've had

My worst job was definitely my paper round that I stuck out for a solid two years! It was a 40 minute walk every day after school (and on Saturdays!) with a bag nearly as big as me. I did so much after school that my poor Mum usually ended up being the paper girl at least once a week.
