Welcome to GAMESRECRUIT

Scalable Talent Solutions for the Games Industry

 

 

Business 

Business not Buzzwords.  We know the Games Industry is a fun place to work but the main focus should always be commercial viability.  

Entrust us with every facet of your talent management, freeing you to focus on the broader aspects of your business.

Trust

A dedicated law and HR team that makes sure Gamesrecruit and our clients are always compliant with the latest employment legislation.   

Our adherence to a rigorous privacy and non-disclosure policy further ensures peace of mind for both clients and candidates

Experience

50+ years of Games Industry experience gathered via internal and external recruitment.  We have an unrivalled network of contacts within the industry.  

 There is a lot of talk from recruiters but we offer  actual experience and deliver real results.  

Talent

 A great candidate can make the difference between success and failure, and that is why we always set our bar high.  

We will always favour quality over quantity when it comes to finding talent for your business.  Anyone can find a candidate, we want to find you THE candidate. 

Scalability 

Imagine one day you have 5 open roles and the next day you have an additional 20 new roles go live!  This can happen in all companies, unexpected work suddenly appears.   You may already have a recruiter but now all of a sudden there is too much for them to cope with and your milestones are fast approaching. 

Maybe you are a start-up, have just received funding and need to scale up rapidly.  What you need is a talent partner, someone who can not only fill the roles but guide you through those first stages of growth.  We have a team with vast experience of doing just that time and time again, with proven success. 

Or perhaps you simply have a few roles and want to just give them out to a handful of agencies.  We'd love to work with you on this too. We have access to more than 20 Tech Recruiters with experience of internal hiring who we can call upon with little to no notice.   We can grow your talent team and reduce it as your hiring needs fluctuate. Gamesrecruit offers true scalability.

Diversity and Inclusion 

It's not ticking boxes, it's building better teams 

For a lot of companies it often feels like their D&I is just virtue signalling, it can feel like a commitment from them rather than a value add, something needed rather than something wanted.   At Gamesrecruit we see a diverse and inclusive workforce as a way of building a more successful, creative and productive business.   We always want to be hiring the best people but often it is our definition of "best" that needs to be challenged.   The more diverse a team the more diverse ideas and solutions come out of that team and that leads to a more successful business.   This isn't virtue signalling this is commercial common sense. 

At Gamesrecruit we aim to embrace all diversity including the often overlooked neurodiverse amongst us who can often feel uncomfortable with certain interview scenarios.   It is about being flexible and thinking about how things can be improved to make the whole recruitment process more welcoming and inclusive for EVERYONE.
