Do you have games studio experience, and are you seeking a new job in Leeds? Skillsearch is helping a gaming company hire a full-time Principal 3D Artist in Leeds, and the role comes with an attractive salary and benefits package. 

As a 3D Artist, you will be part of a team transitioning from a small start-up studio to an established multi-disciplined games studio specialising in full-scale immersive extended reality games.
