Operations & Finance Assistant

£25,000 - £27,000
London, Aldgate

PLEASE CONTACT

Isabel Brehcist

As a Key Account Manager, I work with some of Give A Grad A Go's larger clients, placing graduates who are looking to break into the Banking & Finance or FinTech sphere.

My area of expertise

I work with such a huge a variety of clients that it's hard to pinpoint my particular area of expertise! But I particularly enjoy finding graduates a job they love in an area they hadn't originally thought about.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I came to Give A Grad A Go to help me with my job hunt after checking out their reviews on Google. I was comletely blown away by the team, work ethic and job opportunities - I quickly decided I wanted in! After friendly team drinks, I was invited on board - 2 years later I'm loving working with some of the coolest clients in the market! It's definitely the most supportive and collaborative working environment I've experienced in my career so far.

The worst job I've had

My worst job has to be when I was a security guard at a (now in administration) shoe warehouse. At 5"3 it was pretty bleak. My months' trial resulted in more shoes being stolen than ever before.
