Business Development Executive

£30,000 - £60,000
London, Central London

PLEASE CONTACT

Camilla Clarke

As a Key Account Manager, I work with some of Give A Grad A Go's bigger clients, managing relationships to make sure that we are meeting their requirements. Regular client interaction and liaising with our team internally ensures that the right graduates are being introduced to these companies at the right time.

My area of expertise

My focus sits within the Technology & Digital and Creative & Design industries. My client portfolio spans an array of exciting companies - from fast-growing tech startups, to fashion brands, digital agencies and FinTech companies.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I came to Give A Grad A Go as a graduate 4 years ago in the hope of finding a role within Marketing & Advertising or PR & Communications in London. It quickly became clear that what I was really looking for was a chance to communicate with these industries rather than work within them. I was really sold by the Give A Grad A Go culture and opportunity to develop quickly and build up an exciting portfolio of clients I could manage. There's nothing more rewarding than helping graduates find their dream job and helping a company build their teams with hard-working graduates.

The worst job I've had

I found myself working in the energy industry before I worked at Give A Grad A Go. It was really interesting to learn more about energy, but setting margins for huge corporate energy tenders felt a little bit out of my comfort zone!
