New Video Games Industry Jobs Board Launch

New Video Games Industry Jobs Board Launch

The video games industry is worth an estimated £105 billion worldwide and employs some 27,000 people in the UK alone, most of whom work in technical roles.

The industry is expected to grow a further 10.6% per year between 2011 and 2014 This growth creates demand for talent, particularly as games are becoming more complex and requiring larger development teams.

In order to keep recruitment costs under control publishers and developers are increasingly bringing some or all of the recruitment function in-house. Using direct methods to source and hire staff helps to reduce their cost-per-hire.

However, the resources and recruitment tools available to the industry are lacking in some areas when compared to other industry niches. There is currently no established, independent, dedicated job board targeting games industry professionals worldwide that has achieved global prominence and widespread uptake by the industry. The closest alternatives are the job sections within some of the main games industry news websites.

GamesJobsDirect.com aims to change this. Owner and founder, James Squires, has a track record of success in the job board and recruitment industries and founded one of the UK’s leading job board development companies in 2007. According to James “There is a gap in the market for a world class games job board and we aim to fill it. We will be working closely with the industry to develop a solution that fits its specific needs and adds great value to the recruitment process”.

Games industry employers and recruiters will be able to tap into a relevant, global candidate pool using a range of tools from Branded Vacancy Advertising to CV Searching, Banner Advertising and Page Sponsorship opportunities.

The site is currently live in BETA mode and the official launch is planned for July 2011.

To find out more, visit www.gamesjobsdirect.com or contact James Squires on 01302 247 227.

Games Jobs Direct is the global video games jobs board for the games industry. We advertise vacancies from the leading games publishers, developers, recruitment agencies and staffing agencies worldwide.

Job Board Advertising VS Recruitment Agency Service
As someone who has owned both recruitment agencies and job boards I am familiar with the debate over the pros and cons of each service. I have often heard people from within the recruitment industry speculating that “direct recruitment” via job boards, linked in etc. is the biggest threat to their future survival and prosperity, In my experience this is simply not true. The services offered by Job Boards and Recruitment
