Realtime Worlds Ramping Up Development, Recruiting 40 at GDC

Realtime Worlds announced that it is attending next week's Game Developer Conference in San Francisco to look for more than 40 additional staff to fill current vacancies.

The company is offering a unique contract package tailored to appeal to those who would like a secure income to ride out the credit crunch, without the hassle of a long-term commitment.

John Duthie, Head of HR, commented "In contrast to many other companies and sectors at the moment, our biggest challenge is in recruiting staff of the calibre, and in the quantities we need. Already 25% of our workforce comes from outside the UK because we aren’t able to find everyone we need here.”

Duthie adds “Many companies have laid off large numbers of talented staff in recent months and we see GDC as a great chance to tap into that talent pool. With the economy the way it is, many people don't want to think about committing to a permanent move, so what we're offering is a number of contract positions for folk to come to Scotland, help us to a successful launch of APB, and then reassess their options when the economy is hopefully in better shape. We can take care of work permits process, relocation, housing - all anyone's got to do is get along to our recruitment stand at GDC to kick off the process."

The contract positions offered by Realtime Worlds are to work on the hotly anticipated All Points Bulletin and one other currently unannounced project, come with a competitive package, 12 month contract, Visa costs paid, return flights paid, free quality accommodation, free healthcare, paid overtime, and paid holiday.

The positions available are listed on the official Realtime Worlds website.
