Skillsearch work in a very unique way compared to many recruitment companies in the industry. They take the time to understand the candidates and through this have developed a strong network, certainly everyone I have worked with speaks of them very highly. They have put me forward for roles only where there is a good match in skills, so taking the time to understand the in depth roles they fill. Which is echoed in the comments from the companies I have worked for. The proof of this is the contract and a permanent role that they have placed me in, during which time they always act with the utmost professionalism. I look forward to working with them again.Senior Cognos Consultant
I met Giles and Guy at Develop and in the months since the event, Skillsearch has visited the campus on two occasions and worked with our students collectively and individually on improving their CVs and what goes into making a good portfolio. Our students respond well to their positive energy and encouragement, and their passion for games development. Giles and Guy are mad for Unity and because of them, I have encouraged all our games students to become proficient on the engine, and pushed the business case for the university purchasing 20UnityPro licenses. And, best of all, Giles and Guy do what it says on the tin – find our students jobs in games.Hope Caton, Lecturer, Games Technology Leader | inKUbator

Katie is a great recruiter to work with. She is very efficient at replying and dealing to any form of communication I sent and the wider Skillsearch team are also always very supportive. I look forward to working with you again.Luke Zammit, Unity Developer | Future Games of London
Through my work at Unity Technologies, and as organiser of the London Unity Usergroup, I have a very close connection with Unity developers throughout the UK. A common theme amongst Unity developers is a call for Unity jobs. On the flip side to this, I visit many studios that are looking for Unity developers to fill vital positions for the development of exciting new projects. It was clear that communication between individual developers and studios needed improving. It's great that Skillsearch have taken the initiative and are focussing on improving the communication between Unity developers and studios.Russ Morris, Product Evangelist | Unity Technologies
The folks at Skillsearch are all you could ask for in a recruitment agency: polite, enthusiastic and thorough. Working with Giles, Guy and Katie has been a real pleasure and I would definitely turn to Skillsearch to help me in the future, as either an employer or candidate. Thanks!Antony Woods, Software Development Engineer | Simworx
I think it's not an understatement to say, I would still be looking for new opportunities without Skillsearch’s help and determination. Their relentless pursuit of my interests with employers never kept me far from their attentions. This led to the lining up of several interviews within days of making contact with Skillsearch. Not only were they quick in finding interviews, but the suitability was spot on. They matched both mine and my employers requirements so well that after my first interview I landed a role. I'd barely made it to the train station on my way home as I was receiving an excited call giving me the good news. The friendliness and the genuine care they had for my success was unmatched from other recruiters I had tried. I can't recommend Skillsearch enough!Adrian Walton, Senior Game Designer | DR Studios
Giles and the team recently helped me find the perfect role in central Brighton. Whilst working with him I was highly impressed with his knowledge of the industry, diligence and professionalism. A cut above many other recruiters I've worked with; every step of the way he showed an impeccable understanding of my skills and requirements and was able to leverage his contacts to find the perfect match in no time at all. I won't hesitate to recommend Skillsearch to my friends and colleagues in the future.Pete Gunter, Senior Developer | Mediatonic
