PLEASE CONTACT

Cameron Hail

I work as Head Resourcer, leading the resourcing team and making sure that they provide the very best service to our candidates. I also handle a lot of our internal hiring - speaking to candidates who could be a good match for the Give A Grad A Go team!

My area of expertise

As Head Resourcer, I work across a range of roles and sectors - although much of my focus is on graduate jobs in Banking & Finance and FinTech, as well as our internal hiring. I also get involved in a lot of our university outreach, building relationships with current students in preparation for their job search.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

Recruitment has always appealed to me, but Give A Grad A Go felt like an especially good fit. As a recent graduate, the company seemed completely relatable. I also wanted to work in a fun, young and vibrant office, and in a role that would challenge me and allow me to grow career-wise – it’s safe to say that both of these criteria have been fulfilled!

The worst job I've had

The worst job I’ve had definitely has to be working at department store in Birmingham. It was always incredibly busy, plus the store was a logistical nightmare!

Looking for sales graduate jobs in London, and want to work for one of the UK’s leading graduate recruitment agencies? You’re in luck, Give A Grad A Go are on the lookout for an ambitious and self-motivated Business Development Executive to join our rapidly expanding team!

You will need to be a good negotiator with exceptional people skills – as your role will see you liaising with a range of potential new clients, then supporting them throughout their journey.

  • A healthy team is a happy team – you’ll get access to our private medical insurance scheme after 6 months, and we have lots of fresh fruit delivered to the office each week
  • We finish early on most Fridays – which makes your weekend feel that bit longer
