What is it?

The Careers Zone is a dedicated recruitment space, running alongside the conference on September 12th and 13th, with a platform provided by Games Factory Talents to make it easy to meet the right people. The activity is free to attend for jobseekers. There will also be a jobs board where companies can post current openings.

This Careers Zone will be a recruitment opportunity for companies in the games industry to meet with prospective new employees.
