Ellie Gee
Project Consultant

What’s my background?                                                                                                                                                                                               

Before joining Gradconsult, I graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2019 with a degree in International Relations and Politics, and again in 2021 with a Masters in Politics, Governance  and Public Policy. Between and after degrees, I worked as a PPI Consultant for M&S Bank and as a recruitment assistant for Hays. 

Outside of work, I am the administrator for the Board of Trustees for the award-winning anti-human trafficking charity, the Snowdrop Project.                               

What do I do at Gradconsult?

I joined the Gradconsult team in September 2021 as an intern and was then made a permanent member of the team a few months later. I have now progressed to Project Consultant where a large part of my role is working as the SME Engagement Manager for the RISE project. In my role, I work with SMEs across the Sheffield City Region, connecting them with talented graduates across the country through a rigorous recruitment process. Outside of RISE, I have had the opportunity to work on exciting research projects, student and graduate development programmes and recruitment schemes for a whole host of clients. As a recent graduate myself, I’ve enjoyed combining my experiences of recruitment from a graduate perspective and what I’ve learned in my time at Gradconsult from a business perspective.

Examples of recent things I’ve been working on include:

  • Supporting SMEs in their graduate recruitment as part of the RISE scheme
  • Delivering a 3-day ‘Get Hired’ workshop for graduates in Birmingham
  • Conducting a literature review as part of a larger research project on diversity and inclusion for university admissions


Life loves

  • Travelling
  • Sewing – as a perfectionist, it also contributes a lot of stress to my life!
  • Linda McCartney mozzarella burgers

Pet peeves

  • Slow walkers
  • People that say they’re too full for dessert
  • People that spend £100s on fast fashion every month
