Account Executive - Financial PR

£21,000 - £26,000
London, Moorgate


Elise Bresler

I'm a Recruitment Consultant, so my role involves matching talented candidates with exciting companies looking to hire graduates.

My area of expertise

I work predominantly in the Creative & Design and Fashion sectors. In my time as a Consultant so far, I've had the opportunity to work with a number of great companies in these industries - including one of the largest beauty companies in the UK - helping them hire the very best junior talent.

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!
