Find new paths to successful employment with Games Factory Talents!

In light of recent layoffs in the gaming industry, there are so many talented people looking for new opportunities right now. Professionals are struggling to break into game studios, while the studios themselves are screening dozens of candidates.

Recognising this need, Games Factory Talents and the HIT Games Conference have joined forces to bring these two important niches closer together and foster meaningful connections between the right people and growing studios. The HIT Games Career Zone is offering a special conference matchmaking hub for conference ticket holders on 22-23 June. The Games Factory Talents digital platform simplifies the process of matching attendees/job seekers with jobs and career opportunities at the skills and speciality level. In addition to matching candidates, the platform allows attendees to pre-book and conduct meetings (interviews) online and/or on-site during and even before the conference.

This career zone serves as a crucial opportunity for game industry studios to reach out to potential new hires. Given the dynamic nature of the games industry, we understand the importance of bridging the gap between companies and candidates seeking opportunities, especially in light of recent layoffs.
