Alongside their day to day duties, Resourcers are also there to lend a helping hand to members of the Give A Grad A Go network, whether it be giving advice on which roles would suit different graduates’ skill sets, or tips on how to create the perfect CV. You will need to have a knack for speaking to people and a high level of empathy – as you’ll be responsible maintaining relationships with applicants and helping them find the perfect job role.

Key responsibilities
