Press Release:
12th November 2009
Net Natives does games!
The UK’s favourite “flat fee” recruitment company, Net Natives, has launched their dedicated recruitment service for the games industry,
Net Natives’ next generation recruitment services have already revolutionised the UK recruitment market, established as the “go to” recruitment provider with their ever growing client base. They are now dedicating their services to one of the UK’s most progressive and dynamic businesses, the video games industry. By using the Net Natives’ unique service, Video Games companies will now be able to make unlimited hires for £575 per campaign, for ANY role.
Richard Sturgess has been an industry figurehead within the video games trade marketing and recruitment advertising sector for the past 5 years, managing various recruitment flagship projects with (part of Eurogamer) and Edge magazine (Future Publishing) and is leading this new direction.
Richard states “The games industry continues to be one of the fastest growing industries in the UK, but can be still reliant on traditional methods for recruitment, with high costs and a slow turnaround. By sharing our strengths and tools within online recruitment marketing, we’ll keep costs down and improve candidate awareness for our clients. Games Natives bridges the gap between traditional job posting and recruitment agency services by adding strength and response to any current recruitment strategy.”
Steve Evans, MD of Net Natives, added, “Net Natives has already proven that our expert online recruitment works across the whole of the UK for EVERY type of vacancy. By having Richard’s expertise we’ll be able to build campaigns that fill roles, not just with studio positions, but across all areas that support the video games industry.”
Net Natives is the UK’s favourite online recruitment provider. We have fun with flat fee recruitment, recruitment outsourcing and SEO for recruitment for clever clients.
