As Give A Grad A Go’s People and Operations Director, I am responsible for ensuring the wellbeing of the team, internal hiring, and training the Resourcing Team, guiding them through their first few months at the company.
My area of expertise
As Give a Grad a Go’s People and Operations Director, I focus on internal training and development; ensuring that the team and the company are growing and working efficiently. Having worked in Recruitment for several years, one of my main focuses is managing our team of Candidate Resourcers, making sure that they are prepared to move into Consultancy. I also focus on internal hiring and ensure we have a steady stream of new Resourcers to join our growing team!

After spending 3 memorable hours in the office, Cary offered me a job and I accepted straight away!
