Graduate Recruitment

One of the elements that separates us from other agencies is graduate recruitment.

Employing graduate developers is an excellent way to bring new ideas and energy into your studio. Our graduates are capable of working on live projects from day one, and can be mentored and trained internally in line with your studio’s principles, projects and working practices.

This approach allows you futureproof your studio and negate the often hefty cost of hiring experienced developers in years to come.​

We have our own dedicated graduate recruitment team who specialise in identifying and contacting the best graduates while they’re still at university.

We’re able to do this due to our experience in the field of graduate recruitment, our links with academia and through our award-winning Grads in Games initiative.

Grads In Games was created to improve the links between the games industry and education and provide more opportunities for aspiring devs to develop and present their skills to the games industry.

This is achieved this through a series of activities running through the academic year, including the Search For A Star game development challenges and the Get In The Game careers events, providing practical solutions to improve the employment prospects of games graduates.

“The activity our grad team carries out gives us a fantastic pool of the most talented graduates every year. So if you want a graduate coder, artist, or animator. You’re in good hands.” Ian Goodall, CEO

Our graduate recruitment team are ready to supply you with talented grads and juniors across Programming, Art, Animation, Design and VFX.

The graduate recruitment team sort through thousands of CVs, portfolios and demos each year to have high calibre Programming, Art, Animation, Design and VFX candidates ready for you to interview.

Through Grads In Games we begin working the best aspiring game developers during their course, providing guidance and advice and staying in touch once they graduate.

Grads in Games helps prepare the next generation of devs for life in the games industry and our specialist graduate recruiters help find them their first position with a studio.

“I’m passionate about ensuring the UK games industry has a healthy pipeline of talented graduates. This is why we’ve invested time and resources into our award winning initiative, Grads in Games.” Ian Goodall, CEO
