After I found this role on my university job board and came in for an interview, I did a trial shift and it seemed like a fun place to work.

I’ve already learnt a lot even though i haven’t been here that long, I wasn’t a gamer before so I was completely new to the industry but I’ve learnt so much already!
Favourite memory so far?
Search for a Star Finals day. It was really exciting to see all the hard work we put into Grads in Games and Search For A Star come together. It was great to see the finalists meeting staff from their dream studios and winning their awards. We were finally being able to show off what we’ve been working on!
