It's only when we are faced with Christmas shopping that we realise how limiting our paypackets can be. Is yours particularly generous or restricting? Let us know.
MCV is once again conducting our annual salary survey, giving the UK games industry the chance to share both the pain and pleasure of the jobs market.
We also plan to revive the popular Jobs In Games online special that we ran on MCVuk.com in September: one month of jobs profiles, insight from recruitment experts and tips on how to get that perfect job. Contact Jennie.Lane@intentmedia.co.uk or James.Batchelor@intentmedia.co.uk to find out how you can get involved.
The survey is open to anyone in the games industry and developers from across the UK, Europe, North America and around the world are invited to take part.
Last year, hundreds took part to provide data and feedback on the jobs market.
To take part in the survey, click here or see below – we'll be collating the answers after the Christmas break.
Our survey consists of questions covering everything from salary and bonuses through to whether or not readers are confident about the year ahead – and it takes less than five minutes to fill out. No, really, we've timed it ourselves.
Results will be printed in upcoming issues of MCV and our sister magazine Develop that will be are dedicated to recruitment in January.
