Job Description

The role of the modern-day Recruiter is changing. Through increased competition and technology platforms offering alternative hiring methods, our role has been forced to evolve into a fine art and science of understanding people and professionally supporting their careers or the hiring needs of companies. To be a (successful) Recruiter requires a genuine interest and flair for helping people, whilst having the capacity to understand what drives them, and what value they can bring to a team on a cultural, as well as technical level.

At Studiotypes, we do this for the Video Games and Interactive Entertainment Industry.

What's not to like about that?

Got this far? Glad to hear it. Please, read on...

When you join as a Talent Sourcer | Researcher at Studiotypes, we’ll support you in creating the role you want it to be. If hiring Programmers and Engineers is where you'd like to hone your craft, we’ll map out a game plan that enables you to own that market. Perhaps you're more of an artistic type that grasps the nuances of what constitutes a great Concept or an Environment Artist for a AAA studio making an action RPG? We’ve got you covered, and will help you own that visual space. Whatever your weapon of choice in talent sourcing, we provide a platform to help define your career.

The role offers the ability to support the building and growth of top-tier game dev studios around the world. With that, of course, comes responsibility. So equally, you will work tirelessly to support the needs of the talent we search in the market for and the studios we represent to deliver on their hiring demands.

Recruiting on behalf of over 20 studios globally, some of which are growing their teams significantly, we are not short of opportunity. You will have warm relationships to benefit from on day one, embedded partnerships to demonstrate how internal recruitment works at a studio, and you will be given the flexibility to develop a discipline in the best way you see fit.

We have an office in Manchester, UK; our main HQ. However, the growing team is distributed across the North West, North East, South East, and London within the UK, in addition to a newly established presence in Poland within Europe. Which means we are a remote-first business.

If you want to Recruit some of the most creative minds in the World, then get in touch.
