Graduate Software Developer


Joe Goddard

I'm a Senior Recruitment Consultant at Give A Grad A Go, focusing primarily on IT, Software & Engineering graduate jobs. 

My area of expertise

My working background has been in retail and hospitality, which has definitely prepared me for the fast-paced nature of recruitment! I work on IT, Software & Engineering graduate jobs, as well as a few Digital roles - ranging from Software Developers, to Support roles in high-growth tech startups.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

After returning from living abroad, I threw myself into the graduate job hunt. I came across Give A Grad A Go by chance when applying for different recruitment roles and after a brief courtship I came to work for them. I've not looked back since!

The worst job I've had

I spent one summer working as a Field Sports Camp Co-ordinator, putting on events across Suffolk for local kids who wanted to get active. It would have been a great job... if any kids turned up! Due to a mess up with the advertising, no one knew we were even running the camp.
