Team Assistant - French Speaking


Gillian Vevers

I work as a Candidate Co-ordinator within a team that specialises in Technology & Digital and FinTech jobs. I profile graduates and gather information about their job search & career objectives, in order to ensure that the right graduates are sent to our Recruitment Consultants.

My area of expertise

Being a Candidate Co-ordinator means that I work on a variety of graduate jobs, for a huge range of different companies. Breaking the mould within the corporate realm, we focus on anything from sales jobs at tech companies to client services jobs at fast-growing FinTech startups.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

Throughout my education, I've always been drawn to pursuing new opportunities. I applied directly to Give A Grad A Go, and during my interview I met members from several different teams. It was the warm welcome and engaging personalities of the people at Give A Grad A Go that made me certain that this was an environment I wanted to be a part of!

The worst job I've had

I’ve always been very fortunate in the work I have undertaken - I really can’t say I’ve ever had a bad job!
