Graduate Recruitment Resourcer

London, Shoreditch


Claire Donaldson

As Give A Grad A Go's Head of People Operations, I am responsible for ensuring the wellbeing of the team, internal hiring, and training the Resourcing Team, guiding them through their first few months at the company.

My area of expertise

As Give A Grad A Go's Head of People Operations, I focus on internal training and development; ensuring that the team and the company are growing and working efficiently. Having worked in Recruitment for several years, one of my main focuses is managing our team of Candidate Resourcers, making sure that they are prepared to move into Consultancy.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I came in to the office to discuss which graduate jobs might be right for me, and realised straight away that my ideal place to work would be somewhere like Give A Grad A Go. I’d started the job hunt looking at Marketing & Advertising roles, but soon realised that a role in Recruitment would offer me the exact opportunities I was looking for - networking with clients, being rewarded for hard work and chatting with graduates and clients on the phone. After spending 3 memorable hours in the office, Cary offered me a job and I accepted straight away! I’ve now been here for 4 years!

The worst job I've had

Every summer I worked on a local farm as a waitress. The role had it perks (lots of hefty bacon butties) - but mucking out the barns and the smell of manure really took its toll....
