Design Consultant

£18,000
London, Swiss Cottage

PLEASE CONTACT

Penelope Newson

I'm an Account Manager, specialising in graduate jobs within IT, Software & Engineering, and Technology & Digital.

My area of expertise

I work on a wide variety of graduate jobs, ranging from Front-End Development to Marketing - all of which are nestled within the world of IT, Software & Engineering / Technology & Digital. I really like the diversity that this provides my day-to-day role, and I also love being able to match graduates to their ideal position!

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

When I was looking for graduate jobs, I was really unsure about what to expect, and was pleasantly surprised when I came into the Give A Grad A Go offce to find such a wonderful atmosphere. I quickly realised this was the perfect working environment for me!

The worst job I've had

I once worked in a milkshake shop, and it definitely did not bring all the boys to the yard. The mixture of summer, teenagers and milkshakes resulted in hours and hours of washing up - I was only trusted to make an actual milkshake after two months of being there!
