Graduate Finance Assistant

£25,000 - £27,000

PLEASE CONTACT

Ben Taylor

As Give A Grad A Go's Sales Manager, it's my responsibility to lead our team of expert Graduate Recruitment Consultants. I make sure that our sales team is reaching its full potential, offering both graduates and clients the best possible service.

My area of expertise

I work primarily with corporate clients in the Banking & Finance sector. My graduate jobs tend to include FX Broking, Trading and Wealth Management roles.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

Having been on the graduate job hunt for a while, I originally came into the Give A Grad A Go office to discuss potential career opportunities. I was really taken aback by the fantastic working atmosphere and cameraderie at Give A Grad A Go, and when Cary called a few hours later to invite me in for a trial, it felt right. 7 years later, here I am!

The worst job I've had

Before I worked at Give A Grad A Go, I did have a few interesting graduate jobs – probably the most challenging was working in the energy industry. It was interesting to learn about energy, but setting margins for huge corporate energy tenders was definitely a bit out of my comfort zone!
