Ukie partners with BAFTA at Rezzed for Careers Genius Bar

We are partnering with BAFTA at this years Rezzed to present the "BAFTA and Ukie Careers Genius Bar" on the GamesIndustry Fair. The bar will feature development-focused talks like programming art and design from BAFTA Breakthrough Brits Sophia George, William Pugh and Daniel Gray. We will also be hosting talks from the publishing side of the games sector, covering community management, marketing, PR and more from Ukie Video Games Ambassadors at Sony, Nintendo, GameSpot and SEGA.

We will have members from our army of Video Game Ambassadors combined with BAFTA's Crew Games members on hand throughout the fair to chat about their games industry experiences and career histories, as well as advise on study choices and available career paths. They will also be providing one-to-one job application advice, so visitors are encouraged to bring their CVs and work portfolios.

CEO of games industry trade body Ukie, Dr Jo Twist commented, “Having the BAFTA & Ukie Careers Bar at EGX Rezzed is an incredibly effective way of inspiring the next generation of games talent. Giving people the chance to hear straight from our industry experts is a great way for them to find out about the wide range of careers available in the games industry. We are delighted to be partnering with BAFTA and EGX Rezzed to help make this happen”.
