Want to work in the games industry? (Modiphius Entertainment)

Since its inception in 1997 Gamers Web as always been about putting the right people in the right place.  Over the years through my contacts in the industry and with talented people around the world, I have found pretty high profile jobs in the past within the games industry for those who had no clue how to go about it, by just simply pointing two bodies together!

Of course the world is now a lot smaller than it was twenty years ago, but the ethos remains the same.  If I can help someone get into the hobby industry or likewise help those in the industry get new blood, I will.

Working in the games industry on some of the best loved games around seems like the best job in the world and for a lot of reasons it is.  It is also very hard work, with meeting very tight deadlines, constant pressure from those around you to deliver and also the public demanding where their latest product is.  If you can weather all of that and feel that you have something to offer one of the fastest growing games companies in the industry then read on.
