GDC 09 Dundee developer looking to hire from international talent pool

Realtime Worlds recruiting at GDC

Scottish developer Realtime Worlds is using GDC 09 to further a recruitment drive that hopes to secure 40 additional staff to fill current vacancies.

The Dundee-based company is offering a unique tailored contract package that promises to aid those who would like a secure income during the credit crunch that negates the need for a long-term contract.

"In contrast to many other companies and sectors at the moment, our biggest challenge is in recruiting staff of the calibre, and in the quantities we need," said Realtime Worlds head of HR John Duthie. "Already 25 per cent of our workforce comes from outside the UK because we aren’t able to find everyone we need here.

“Many companies have laid off large numbers of talented staff in recent months and we see GDC as a great chance to tap into that talent pool. With the economy the way it is, many people don’t want to think about committing to a permanent move, so what we’re offering is a number of contract positions for folk to come to Scotland, help us to a successful launch of APB, and then reassess their options when the economy is hopefully in better shape."
