We’re big fans of the games industry

We’ve watched it grow from a bedroom “cottage” business into the billion dollar industry it is now – game design has become more intricate, graphics have become better, real world physics are finally becoming a reality… the list goes on.

That’s why we do what we do. We don’t make great games – but we help studios do this by finding great candidates – that’s hopefully where you come in. We’re always on the lookout for people across a wide range of disciplines – programmers, artists & animators (2D & 3D), games and level designers and producers and project managers. We have links with studios in the United Kingdom, continental Europe and north America, and can ensure that the best possible opportunities are presented to you, bearing in mind your desired location, project type, salary range and a host of other factors that may be important to you.

We will also only put you forward for roles we genuinely believe you have a realistic chance of securing – it serves neither us, nor you or the studio, to waste time with applications we don’t believe are worthwhile. Believe it or not, in that case we’ll tell you why we can’t put you forward and suggest that if you’re still interested you apply direct. It’s not that we won’t fight your corner for you – but that we know when it’s worth doing so.

We hope you’ll give us the chance to show you just how different we really are.

We reward referrals!
