More than 100,000 people now work in the UK’s thriving recruitment sector, helping 634,000 candidates find new permanent jobs in 2014/15. The games industry plays a significant part in this success, yet many consultants have never considered trying their hand at games recruitment. But we’re looking to change that. At Amiqus, we want talented, bright and passionate recruiters to join our team and help make games great. If you’re fed up with the recruitment industry’s obsession with KPIs and want to add more sophisticated value to candidates, your company and the industry at large, we want you to join us.
Games is one of the most exciting sectors to recruit for, regardless of whether you’re into games or not. It’s creative, fast-paced and technically cutting-edge. The games industry has a wide variety of roles ranging from programmers and producers through to artists and designers so the diversity of talents we work with is brilliant. As a recruiter in this sector you’ll meet some exceptional people, whether that’s based on their technical prowess or inspiring creative ability. Recruitment offers quick rewards, a fast-paced environment and excellent opportunities for career progression. Games recruitment does all this and more, providing a solid base from which to build a long and varied career. With rapid growth reported in the games sector (revenue is up 8.5% on 2015), recruitment in the industry looks set to continue to soar. This is good news for candidates and great news for recruiters looking to get into a thriving market, but it’s a sophisticated business we’re in as Liam from our team describes: “Because the market is so candidate led we have to be clever about how we source for these individuals so you learn lots of new methods”.
