Patron of Grads in Games
22nd Nov 2017
We are pleased to announce that d3t has become a Patron of Grads in Games.Launched eight years ago by industry recruiters Aardvark Swift, Grads in Games runs a programme of events, competitions and resources to equip students with all they need to make the leap from student to the professional work environment.
Grads in Games runs the ‘Get in the Game’ tour which offers a series of comprehensive workshops, while the ‘Search for a Star’/’Rising Star’ competitions enable students to showcase their talent, with exclusive job and internships on offer to the winners and finalists.
As a Grads in Games patron, d3t now has the opportunity to get more involved in workshops, competition judging and mentoring. We are passionate about the calibre of graduate coming through our universities, we look forward to meeting all the emerging talent and nurturing the next generation of industry leaders.
And we know that the Grads in Games initiatives really work, having recently recruited ‘Search for a Star’ finalist Neil Osbaldeston.
d3t Tech Director Andy Booth said,
“We see Search for a Star as a great way of drawing attention to the most promising people, and we urge other studios to get involved in cultivating the young talent that this country produces. It’s a great opportunity for students to bolster their portfolios, developing something that allows them to express their creativity, and hopefully also get some experience in a technical-interview situation. The finals day is an awesome way to network and make some connections for the time when the job hunt is on!”
We are a growing studio and our recent acquisition by Keywords Studios means we have more opportunities opening up to us, so we are actively recruiting. We have also been named a GamesIndustry.biz ‘Best Place to Work’ which is awarded partly based on feedback from anonymous staff questionnaires.
We are excited to become a Patron and be able to play our part in developing individuals as they embark upon their careers in this exciting industry.
Search For A Star
We had an amazing day on 6thApril 2018 when we headed off to Sheffield Hallam University to help judge this year’s Search For A Star competition. d3t’s Scott Bevin was on hand to judge and couldn’t have been more impressed by the calibre of entrants.
Congratulations to all the winners and to everyone who took part.
