Jagex is the latest studio to head to Brighton in the hope of recruiting employees affected by the layoffs at Disney's Black Rock Studio.

The independent UK developer is hosting informal meetings at Revolution in Brighton tomorrow, May 12, between 12 and 6pm.

Vice president of technologies Nick Thompson, art director Pascal Blanche, head of HR Laura Hare and recruitment manager Francesco Genovese will be in attendance and no appointments are necessary.

"It is really sad to see another UK developer making redundancies; especially with the number of highly talented people here in the UK," said Genovese.

"It is this home-grown talent that has allowed us to become one of the world's largest independent indie developers, and we would love the chance discuss our current opportunities with those affected by the Black Rock redundancies."

As a customer of jagex in the past i harshly disliked their customer support.

As someone looking into the industry though, they are a fantastic british team who have gone from strength to strength and have always allowed other members of the industry to approach them if sacked/made redundant, in these sort of circumstances which is pretty sweet to be honest.

"have always allowed other members of the industry to approach them if sacked/made redundant"

To be fair though, no company would refuse to entertain applications from anyone in this scenario:)

Good luck to all at Black Rock, I hope they get sorted.

Jagex can shove it where the sun shineth not. I've lost count of how many times I've applied to them listing the precise capabilities they ask for and I've got, and havenít once got a reply.
