Our mission at Druid Gaming has always been to help the next generation find their passion, and establish a long career working in gaming and Esports. Since the early days of Druid we have been visiting schools, attending careers fairs and posting on social media with the goal of informing as many students as possible about how fantastic the gaming and Esports sectors are to work in.
Despite the UK being the 5th largest gaming market in the world, and despite it being the largest creative industry (bigger than music and film combined), there is still a huge shortage of people who have the skills needed. This is largely due to the huge lack of information for students on what the industry is, what jobs there are available and how to get onto the career ladder.
We have been visiting schools and careers fairs across the country to raise awareness, alongside our Career Guide, which has provided everything you need to know about the jobs on offer, and the skills and qualifications needed to become hireable. But what happens when you're ready to start your work in gaming and Esports? How do you actually get that dream job? That's where our newest partner, Hitmarker, comes in!
