As part of our ongoing recruitment special, today we've taken a look at the development opportunities in Cambridge.

We've gathered the city's leading industry figures from local companies including Sony Cambridge, Ninja Theory and Zoonami.

"There are a lot of people who are no longer in Cambridge, but it’s a very fertile place to recruit from," said Frontier Developments' chairman David Braben.

"I think we’ve reached a critical mass in that there are a lot of other developers here, and now there’s a pool of talent – plus we’ve got an awful lot of people who are not in games, but are in techy subjects that are very close – so it’s a very good place for employment."
