Elise Bresler

My role within Give A Grad A Go is as a Candidate Resourcer, which involves speaking to an array of graduates looking to kick-start their job hunt and find their ideal first job.

My area of expertise

As a Candidate Resourcer I don't specialise in any specific area within the company, however I am mostly drawn to the creative industries. I get to speak to extremely interesting and talented candidates from a huge range of backgrounds, and see their incredible portfolios of work – it’s definitely an area I’m very passionate about.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I first heard about Give A Grad A Go through a friend, who recommended applying for graduate jobs through them. When I arrived to meet the team and discuss potential job opportunities, I was struck by how friendly and dedicated everyone was, and was completely drawn to the company culture. Although I had never considered it before, I knew that recruitment would play to my strengths as I love talking to people and finding out about their journeys. I also get the opportunity to work across a huge array of roles, which means that no day is ever the same!

The worst job I've had

Before this job, I worked at a corporate PR agency within the Real Estate sector. The company was very set in its ways, not sure if its something I would like to do again!
