Job sites outside of "the norm"
« on: March 25, 2019, 12:20:33 PM »
Any recommendations for job sites that cater specifically for listing with jobs at small businesses/start-ups OR jobs within the video game industry (and areas similar to that). I know it's a bit of an odd ask on here and more likely to get a response on the former rather than the latter, but thought it worth asking just in case somebody else had stumbled across something useful in their application journey.

I'm currently looking and applying on all the standard sites like Indeed, Reed, LinkedIn, CV Library, and Glassdoor but was hoping for something a bit more streamlined for jobs either in gaming industry or more of a "start-up" type environment.
My, how time flies....

There's Dice in the US but when I looked for UK Dice, I noticed it's been closed.

Do you program/make video games?

My experience with the small recruitment sites is that they don't work because they are small. 

For many years I worked with a company called Datascope in London and they have since gotten huge in gaming.  I still get lists of open positions from them, might be worth a visit to their site.

Can you work in Brighton? At least a few years back that was the place for games companies.

Yes Brighton seems to be HUGE (as well as London/outskirts of London as expected) for gaming companies in the south of the country. Brighton is just a bit too far for me as I’m not really forced to get a new job, I just want to.
