Author: Lisa Carter
Posting date: 21/11/2023

The whole team at Amiqus is absolutely delighted and honoured to have received another award, this time the accolade of Best Recruitment Agency at the TIGA Games Industry Awards 2023.

Awards like this are so important to us because they are voted for by the industry  – a sector which we have worked within and supported for over 20 years, helping studios and other companies to grow their businesses; and individuals to further their careers. 

This is our 22nd games industry award for recruitment, and we couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you to everyone who has voted for us through the years, your support means everything to us.  We will always strive to offer the very best recruitment solutions to the industry, and we continue to invest in helping the UK games sector to become the best place for a career for everyone.

In the past year, we have built on our commitment to EDI via our G Into Gaming initiative by pledging significant resources to a new venture in conjunction with Ukie’s #RaiseTheGame – the Empower Up platform. We are incredibly proud of this launch, and look forward to seeing its potential play out across the entire industry.

It’s been a busy year for Amiqus, as well as a challenging one for us and many others within the industry. We’re looking forward to seeing what 2024 brings and, again, are thankful to TIGA and to the judges for this wonderful award. Congratulations to all the other winners. Here’s the roll call…
