Candidate Testimonials

  • ​It really doesn’t matter where you are, Athina is a perfect example of how the perfect job can find you! Our Commercial team was looking for candidates who matched the precise skillset that Ubisoft were looking for. Athina ticked all of the boxes, and when we reached out to her she was travelling across Australia at the time! This is her first role within the games industry and she’s doing great.

  • ​Matthew attended the Get in the Game careers talk at the University of Central Lancashire back in 2017. He became a finalist in the Grads in Games Rising Star game development challenge in 2018, and secured an internship off of the back of that at Boss Alien. We knew he was going to be one to watch! Matthew followed this by winning Search for a Star, and we worked together to get him his first permanent industry role at d3t!

We worked together to make his dream a reality, eventually landing a role within Gameloft in Montreal.

  • ​I actually placed Brian in his first industry role as a Trade Marketing Executive at Konami. He progressed through the ranks there, which was so awesome to see, eventually becoming European Brand Manager. When he approached me again, looking for a change, I managed to work with him to secure a position at Frontier. He’s their first ever Senior Brand Manager and is now working on 3rd party publishing projects.

  • ​Femi saw our post on social media about our commitment to the BLM movement, offering free CV, portfolio, and career advice to black communities. I had a good chat with him to find out what type of role he was looking for. I discussed his situation with the Founder of Airship Images and it was a perfect fit! I introduced them both and now he’s working in his first role within video games!

  • ​Anton was in love with Japan, from the culture and media this location is famed for, all the way through to their way of life. As a skilled programmer, he harboured dreams of being able to emigrate and work within the country. After working with me, he’s been able to do just that. He’s been working with Q-Games in Kyoto for several months now, and he’s doing great!
