Check out what we are currently playing and how to play with us on our gaming Fridays!
Have a phonecall, Zoom or coffee with James or Hannah. We want to know more about your career to date, and understand what is truly important to your career ambitions and your next move.
After connecting, we will show you a selection of studios we think would help your next move and why. If we don’t have anything that makes sense to your career, we will be honest and point you in the right direction
Once we have agreed on prospective studios, we would begin with introductions of your profile/portfolio. We might also do a mini video interview at this stage to increase your chances.
After agreeing on an interview date and time, we are on hand for any interview prep or support you might need before the big day.
We will always make the time to catch up with you after interviews. To see where you stand with the studios, offer feedback and help prepare you best for the next stage.
If you are set an assignment as part of the interview process, it is our job to make sure you are happy, understand the assignment and to get any questions you need answered.
We represent you at this stage, communicating with the Studio to ensure you get the best offer that works for you. We want to make sure that you are happy with the details of the offer and of course, accept!
Our support doesn’t stop here, we will help you with the resignation, handling notice periods and onboarding... making it a lot less awkward!
"The best recruiter I have worked with"
In my 7 years in the gaming industry, Haptic Recruit has easily been the best recruiter I have worked with. From understanding what I wanted/needed in my search for my next role, to preppingme for the interviews - with meticulous detail. All I can say is; listen to them, take their advice, and watch them work their magic.

"Hannah is a brilliant person to work with"
She has an ability to read people that makes her incredible at match-making especially in the startup scene. Her business sense is top-notch as well. Would highly recommend her especially if you are looking for someone to help you find a great new position or a good candidate for an opening at your company.

"Very attentive and endlessly enthusiastic"
Working with Haptic Recruit was fantastic from start to finish and I'm greatly appreciative for their support in landing me a great new opportunity. They took a lot of time and care over the whole process to try and understand what I was looking for and present a lot of great options that were a good fit for my requirements and experience.
Daniel Lewis, Game Designer at Big Pixel Studios
"Highly recommend to other start ups"
We decided to work with Hannah @ Haptic Recruit because we knew of some of her previous hires in the space and were impressed. We have been very happy with the process, CV selection and candidate vetting by Hannah and James. We only met with high quality candidates and subsequently offered 2 roles which were quickly accepted. Would use again for future roles and highly recommend to other start ups looking to grow their team with the right skill and culture fit.
Iain Baird, CEO at ShareMob
"Really felt refreshing from other recruiters"
Haptic Recruit really felt refreshing from other recruiters; they spent a lot of time making sure the process was always moving forwards and I truly felt I wasn’t just the first result out of a quick search. They clearly spent time researching me and making sure I was a good fit for the role they were recruiting for. Absolutely cannot say enough good things about Haptic Recruit, and I would not hesitate in recommending them to act for you.

"They matched my skills and salary expactations perfectly"
James assisted me in my job transition very well, he found a studio that matched my skills, salary expactations and interest perfectly. Communication between me, the studio and James was quick and smooth. If I ever decide to change job again, I'll give James a call.
