Our candidate was previously a lead console designer who had worked with some of Europe’s biggest studios. They had just finished a major project and were looking for a fresh challenge in the New Year.
Having been previously placed by us, we had kept in touch with the candidate who came straight to us once he decided to look for new work. Our first step was to sit down with the candidate to get a feel for what he was searching for: what kind of project he wanted to work on and the kind of studio he would want to be a part of.
We scoured our extensive database and matched the candidate with six opportunities within the UK and Europe which aligned with the candidate’s skillset and what they wished to get out of their new job.
Having strong connections with many studios who trust our recommendations, the candidate successfully received interview offers from each studio. After being offered second interviews for each post, we once again talked through the candidate’s options and helped them select three secondary interviews to attend – of which he secured two offers.
Our candidate settled on a Design Director role with one of the UK’s leading studios. The candidate says they’re enjoying the role and are working hard alongside a fantastic team to deliver a highly anticipated AAA title.
