Hundreds Of Gamers Expected At Recruitment Fair

SCOTLAND'S premier recruitment fair for the games industry returns to Dundee next month with hundreds of people from around the country expected to attend.

Game in Scotland offers anyone interested in working in the exciting, growing sector an opportunity to meet with Scotland's top games development studios and hear about the variety of job opportunities they have on offer now.

Bosses and staff from various games companies across Scotland - including console, mobile and interactive TV development studios - will be at the event on March 29 at Fat Sams, Dundee.

Among those down to attend so far are Real Time Worlds, Cohort Studios and Dynamo Games - all based in Dundee.

Joyce Matthew, manager of the digital media team at Scottish Enterprise Tayside, said: "We staged a recruitment fair in Dundee last year and it was so popular we're doing the same this year.

"There's a real buzz about the industry with Scottish companies, many of them here in Dundee, enjoying huge success. But they need fresh talent to help them grow even more, which is where we come in.

"This is the premier recruitment fair for the industry in Scotland and anyone who's interested in making a career in a sector which can also be a lot of fun should come along and bring lots of copies of their CV with them.''

The afternoon will consist of a series of informal presentations, panel sessions and lots of opportunity to chat to different companies. It will then be followed by an informal networking event.

The event is free but there is limited capacity and registering in advance is essential. Visit www.interactivetayside.com/gameinscotland to register and for more information.
