Junior Project Manager - Oxford

£19,000 - £24,000
South East, Oxford


Samuel Hickson

I am a Recruitment Consultant, working predominantly on Technology & Digital, and Marketing & Advertising graduate jobs.

My area of expertise

I work across a real range of sectors and graduate jobs, but in my time as a Consultant so far I've had the chance to work mainly on Technology & Digital jobs.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

Recruitment was something I had already considered, but the moment I walked into Give A Grad A Go was when I realised it was the place for me. The office culture was buzzing, the people seemed great and management really made an effort to show that they liked me (hopefully they still do!)

The worst job I've had

I used to spend the gap between semesters at uni working at a school uniform shop. I really didn't enjoy retail and the shop was massively overrun with angry teenagers arguing with their parents... but you have to pay off the overdraft somehow!
