Finding the perfect job is always a challenge, but it’s especially difficult to connect with the right people at the moment!. To help out, as part of Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #6, the online conference for the games industry, we’ll be shining a spotlight on games industry careers. And as part of that, we’re thrilled to welcome Games Jobs Live back as part of the week’s activities in February.

Free recruitment session
Games Jobs Live events are live-streamed recruitment events designed specifically for the games industry. Broadcast on YouTube, they’re free and open to all attendees, whether they already work in the games industry, another sector, or have recently graduated.
The events showcase the best local game development studios – each studio succinctly presents who they are, what they’ve done, and what positions they’re looking to fill. Each studio also has their own dedicated Discord chat channel so applicants can follow up with any questions to them, and then just apply directly to each studio.
Studios involved at previous events at Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #4 and #5 included Ubisoft, Hutch, Hypixel, Rovio, Sharkmob, MAG Interactive, Outplay, Kwalee, Futureplay, Huuuge, Boss Bunny and Axis Studios.
This latest event will take place alongside Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #6 in April, and will be a 90-minute video broadcast, followed by a 30-minute Discord Q&A. You’ll hear from companies that have vacancies to fill, and then be able to ask questions.
Register here on Eventbrite today to be sent links and details.
Help for jobseekers
Games Jobs Live has been running successfully for some time, and you can watch recordings of previous broadcasts at the official site.
Virtually all attendees found it useful enough to attend again, with feedback from attendees saying that over 96% would take part again!
And the studios involved love it too: “Games Jobs Live was a great opportunity to reach out and connect with some of the talented people we have in the gaming industry today,” says Caroline Usher, People and Office Manager, Tag Games. “It’s a great platform to be able to showcase what we do here at Tag and the active roles we have available. Would highly recommend Games Jobs Live. We will definitely be at another one!”
Your Pocket Gamer Connects pals helped hosted one such event alongside Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #4 and #5, so you may already be familiar with the routine.
In addition to Games Jobs Live, there are other Careers Week activities taking place at Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #6, and you can find out more and sign up for those here.
Even more games industry insight
Games Jobs Live takes place alongside the last Pocket Gamer Connects conference of the year.
Pocket Gamer Connects Digital belongs to a series of b2b events for the games industry, run since 2014 by Steel Media, publishers of PocketGamer.biz, the leading mobile games industry website. The next Pocket Gamer Connects conference takes place entirely online on 19-23 April, 2021 and features over 200 speakers who will educate and inspire through an agenda of themed tracks set to cover monetisation and growth, global game trends and company culture, development tools and stories and strategies to thrive in the modern gaming market be it mobile, PC, console, blockchain or XR. It includes a meeting and matchmaking platform, a dedicated Discord, and five full days of talks and panels broadcast over Zoom.
Games Jobs Live is free, and there are other free Careers Week activities during Pocket Gamer Connects Digital if you qualify, but if you are not a jobseeker and still want to take advantage of the networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities, you can buy a ticket to the full week’s activities here (link To Be Added).
