Amiqus business manager Liz Prince talks about how the evolution of the industry has impacted recruitment.
Tell us about your company.
We started Amiqus in 2000, to take our love of the games industry and combine it with our experience in recruitment to help more people find the right job, at the right time.
What successes have you seen recently?
This year we were honoured to receive our sixth Develop Award for Recruitment Excellence, it makes us so happy that people continue to appreciate the work that we do. We love to support the industry.
What are you currently working on?
We work closely with our clients and many trust us exclusively to deliver top talent to their teams. We’ve been engaged recently to attract executive level hires for a number of studios, looking for the best-of-the-best from around the world and placing them into truly game changing roles.
What are the biggest trends in the games industry affecting you right now?
The continued evolution of the sector is awe inspiring, pushing the boundaries of tech bringing new experiences like VR into our homes. Games is so progressive and many jobs didn’t exist even five years ago. In-demand skills are rare so keeping pace across an ever-changing landscape is a real priority for us.
What are you looking forward to in games over the next year?
We can’t wait to see the extent of VR’s impact now it’s launched. We also have a keen eye on eSports as it continues to explode.
