Who are Give a Grad a Go?
Hello & welcome to Give a Grad a Go Australia! Over the last 10 years Give a Grad a Go has firmly cemented ourselves as the UK’s #1 graduate jobs and early career recruitment experts.
Founded by Cary Curtis in 2009, Give a Grad a Go has helped to kickstart the careers of nearly 4,000 candidates within more than 500 exciting companies across the UK, Europe and the US and with our numbers continuing to grow, we got thinking… where else can we offer our award-winning recruitment services?
In 2019 we decided that Australia would be the next country for us to have feet on the ground and we’re delighted to announce that we have now officially arrived.
Our goal is to bring the great work we’ve been doing from the UK to help improve the job-hunting experience for graduates in Australia whilst helping Australian businesses engage and hire the best graduate talent.
Launching our recruitment services in Australia
We’re very excited to be launching in Australia and we’re here to offer our high-touch recruitment services to Australian graduates and employers whether those be businesses we haven’t worked with before or our current clients who have operations in APAC.
We want to take this opportunity to introduce our Country Manager in Australia, Camilla Clarke.
Camilla joined Give a Grad a Go as a graduate in 2013 and has already helped over 350 candidates begin, and further, their graduate careers.
Camilla is now heading up our Australian business in Melbourne and it’s a hugely well-deserved opportunity for Camilla to take our business global.
How is Give a Grad a Go different from other recruitment agencies?
As our name would suggest, our attention is on jobs for graduates and entry-level talent, working with candidates who are either fresh out of university or who have up to 3-5 years’ experience under their belt (we call it 1st, 2nd or 3rd jobbers).
A considerable amount of the work that we have done so far has been supporting the start-up and SME community.
In many cases we have helped these early-stage start-ups grow to global success stories, so we’d like to think that we will have the same impact here in Australia.
We’ve already proven what a huge asset graduates can be to any business and we’d like to share some of our knowledge and expertise with the Australian recruitment market.
Give a Grad a Go are different from most recruitment agencies in that we provide excellent support at all stages of the recruitment process, with interview tips and career advice for graduates, as well as constructive feedback after every interview.
We have an above-average probation pass rate of 96% for the candidates we place in jobs whilst also filling over 80% of the roles that clients ask us to work on, demonstrating the high standards we work to.
If you’re a graduate looking to kick-start your career in Australia, or if you’re an employer looking to grow your team and recruit graduates, get in touch with Camilla today.
