With a plan to triple turnover and headcount in the next 3 years in an industry that is booming there couldn’t be a better time to join us.


Role overview:

You’ll take the lead developing and executing the digital marketing strategy, including elements such as filming with studios, blog posts, social media graphics and copy, email marketing campaigns and external advertising. As well as backing up your activity with detailed analytics and reports, showing stakeholders the impact that marketing is having.

You’ll work alongside likeminded people who all have something in common – a passion for the games industry. You’ll also be expected to represent the business at games industry-focused events around the UK, Europe and in the US as well as support the sales function of the business. Help them to show prospective clients why Games Jobs Direct is the right place to invest their recruitment advertising budget.

This is a growing business with huge ambitions. There’s a lot of scope for the role to develop and expand alongside the business.

You will be very hands on and have a skill set that enables you to be involved with copywriting, graphic design, events, email marketing, social media, branding, campaign planning. You will also be the main point of contact for external marketing agencies/advertising suppliers.

This is a commercially focussed role where you will need to develop a good understanding of the business to enable you to support sales and generate revenue with a broad spectrum of marketing tools. You will be responsible for developing brand awareness across GJD and working with Clients to maximise their employer brand potential through a range of marketing mediums. 


There is scope to delegate some of these tasks across the team, however this will be a hands-on role where you will be expected to prioritise workload across the above.

With a healthy marketing budget, the marketing team will be a key driver for the business as we enter a huge period of expansion. This is an exciting role that will play a huge part in the continued growth of Games Jobs Direct, presenting a great chance for the right person to play a role at Senior Management level, create a strong marketing team and carve out a role for themselves as a leader within the business.
