Kim, Kim, Kim.... She is both professional and friendly. And also, she is very friendly. I would trust her for any keystone recruitment (the other as well, of course). She has the 'people' feeling that lacks in soooo many recruitment agencies. Thumbs up for Kim!

Jon is not only a pleasant person to interact with but also very professional, adherent and engaged in your goals and visions and will always take whatever time needed up to make sure things are going in the right direction. For me he´s been truly invaluable and from what I have heard around, people like Jon are not easy to come by.

Emma is great! Without her enthusiasm, trust, belief, and professionalism I wouldn't have been able to secure a role at CD Projekt Red. Throughout the long application and interview process Emma made things so much easier to handle. She took the weight from my shoulders and was the essential bridge between myself and CDPR. I have complete trust in her judgement and ability to read a situation. I wouldn't hesitate to get in touch again in the future if I needed to find another job. Thank you Emma!

Mitchell was a great support in finding me a new position in the industry. Very quickly, he highlighted interesting job opportunities for me, based on my personal preferences. There was not a single moment, where I doubted his motives in finding a place for me, where I would be most happy with. First I was unsure on what to think of finding a job via a recruiter, but Mitchell really casted a positive light on this matter, quickly removing all my doubts! Interpersonal and professional wise a definite recommendation

Gary is our Technical Art, Lighting and VFX Artists Consultant in our Creative division. Entering the recruitment sector in 2016, he couldn’t pass up the chance to combine his knowledge and skills in recruitment, and his genuine love and interest in the video game industry.
Owning a collection of over 2000 games spanning multiple genres and systems, this is probably the perfect job for Gary! Gary loves a JRPG, classic platformers, and any game he can get lost in the world of. He is also a Champion Rank Rocket League Player.
