Claire Donaldson

As Give A Grad A Go's Team Leader, I am responsible for leading a team of four Consultants and two Resourcers. It’s my job to make sure that my team are supported, getting all the help they need in order to grow within the business, as well as managing my own client base.

My area of expertise

My team and I work with clients within a huge array of sectors - including FinTech, Recruitment, FMCG and Retail to name a few. We are also building a solid client base within some emerging markets including MedTech, HealthTech, EdTech and InsurTech (everything tech!)

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I came in to the office to discuss which graduate jobs might be right for me, and realised straight away that my ideal place to work would be somewhere like Give A Grad A Go. I’d started the job hunt looking at Marketing & Advertising roles, but soon realised that a role in Recruitment would offer me the exact opportunities I was looking for - networking with clients, being rewarded for hard work and chatting with graduates and clients on the phone. After spending 3 memorable hours in the office, Cary offered me a job and I accepted straight away! I’ve now been here for 3 years - and counting!

The worst job I've had

Every summer I worked on a local farm as a waitress. The role had it perks (lots of hefty bacon butties) - but mucking out the barns and the smell of manure really took its toll....
