Event Coordinator

£18,000 - £20,000
London, London Bridge

PLEASE CONTACT

Jack Harry

I work as a Recruitment Consultant on the Corporate desk, focusing primarily on graduate jobs within the Banking & Finance sector. This often includes roles in Broking, Trading and Accounting.

My area of expertise

I sit on the Corporate desk, working mainly on Banking & Finance graduate jobs. Because of the diversity of roles and sectors we work on at Give A Grad A Go, though, I've also had the chance to dabble in FinTech and slightly more creative graduate jobs - which I also really enjoy.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I’d applied for a few roles through Give A Grad A Go, but wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do. I came in to visit the team to discuss what kinds of graduate jobs my skills would be best suited to, and I really liked the atmosphere in the office. Although I’d never really considered a career in graduate recruitment before, when I spoke to the team about the possibility of a job here I thought that it sounded like something I’d be good at – and here I am!

The worst job I've had

I held a job doing door-to-door sales for a number of different charities. Hopefully I learnt something from the late evenings cold calling in the rain!
