Business Development Manager - Sustainable Energy

£30,000 - £40,000 (OTE £60k)
London, Euston

PLEASE CONTACT

William Spilsbury

I work as a Senior Recruitment Consultant within a team who specialise in Banking & Finance and Property & Retail graduate jobs.

My area of expertise 

The desk I work on has a huge list of clients ranging from startups to more established companies. We focus on anything from operations jobs within cool tech companies to client services jobs at established FinTech businesses.

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).
