Play@Develop 2016

Firstly a massive thank you to all of you who made it down and got involved on the day!

We would like to offer our huge thanks and gratitude to the awesome Creative Assembly, who sponsored the event with loads of free drinks tokens, swag, prizes and provided the hugely successful Showdown arcade machines – otherwise known as ‘the noisy area’!

The day went off with a bang with over 300 attendees throughout the day (despite ol’ blighty’s intermittent showers) and loads of money donated to the wonderful Special Effect. Big thanks to all that were kind enough to contribute through our raffles, Showdown tournament entries, spot donations and even our very own bake here at Skillsearch. Click HERE to see how you can get involved in future fundraising opportunities too!

Congratulations to our winners:

 First Prize on the BIG raffle – Phil Bartholomew
Showdown Tournament Winner – Eugenio Dei Giudici
Business Card Raffle – Ioannis Paraskevopoulos

Later on we attended the Develop Awards, where we were lucky enough to have been nominated finalists in the ‘Games Recruiter of the Year’ category. Sadly it wasn’t to be for us this year, but there were plenty of reasons to whoop our way through the night as among the winners were many of our amazing clients and friends!

Our special congratulations go out to:
CD Projekt Red
Space Ape Games
The Chinese Room
Player Research
Testology

About the author Catrin Jones

Our Operations Manager Catrin is here for all our Consultants, Contractors and Clients for everything they need help with throughout the recruitment process. A priceless point of contacts for a number of client and candidate enquiries, she is an important part of the strong relationships we build and maintain as a business. Despite her talent in a vast number of activities however, Catrin’s main regret is her inability to whistle, although we have to admit it is quite amusing to watch her try.
