Graduate Account Manager

£23,000 (OTE £27,000)
London, Tottenham Court Road


Lizzie McFaull

I'm a Recruitment Consultant, specialising in Fashion & FMCG and Creative & Design graduate jobs.

My area of expertise

My background is in fashion and languages so I love working on positions where these are relevant. So far in my recruitment career I've had the chance to work on several creative roles; including plenty of Graphic Designers and Digital Marketing Executives.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I originally applied for a role through Give A Grad A Go, but after speaking to the team and coming in to interview, I found that I loved the friendly environment in the office and decided that it was definitely the place I wanted to work! 

The worst job I've had

My worst job was definitely my paper round that I stuck out for a solid two years! It was a 40 minute walk every day after school (and on Saturdays!) with a bag nearly as big as me. I did so much after school that my poor Mum usually ended up being the paper girl at least once a week.
