Graduate Research Associate

£23,000 (OTE £30,000)

PLEASE CONTACT

Cameron Hail

I work as the Head Resourcer, speaking to candidates to find out their skills, interests and career aspirations. I also lead the resourcsing team, making sure they provide the best service to our candidates.

My area of expertise

As Head Resourcer I work on a huge range of roles and within a number of different sectors, and don’t have a particular area of specialism just yet. However, I am particularly interested in roles in Banking & Finance and FinTech – I love speaking to candidates looking to find graduate jobs in these sectors.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

Recruitment has always appealed to me, but Give A Grad A Go felt like an especially good fit. As a recent graduate, the company seemed completely relatable. I also wanted to work in a fun, young and vibrant office, and in a role that would challenge me and allow me to grow career-wise – it’s safe to say that both of these criteria have been fulfilled!

The worst job I've had

The worst job I’ve had definitely has to be working at department store in Birmingham. It was always incredibly busy, plus the store was a logistical nightmare!
