Jobs Update October 2020

This is our Datascope jobs update for October 2020! As part of our service, we want to ensure that you are kept well informed about new career opportunities.  It is not tailored to anyone’s specific skills and will enable you to appreciate the wide picture. Most of the game studios we work with are still recruiting remotely and we are featuring jobs where a remote start is possible.

In other news, we are thrilled to be nominated for Recruiter of the Year at the Develop Awards 2020 and really appreciate all the support from our clients and candidates. We only wish we could be in Brighton to celebrate in person.

We have also recently welcomed Maisie to the programming team here at datascope 🙂
