Ukie and GI.biz open call for speakers and volunteers ahead of Careers Fair at EGX 2017

Ukie have once again teamed up with gamesindustry.biz to host the world-class Careers Bar at EGX in September - and we're looking for expert speakers, panellists and careers advisers to be on hand during the event.

The Ukie Careers Bar will, as always, be the centre of the GamesIndustry.biz Careers Fair, the leading careers destination at EGX where established professionals can scope out their next career move, and future games talent - working across any discipline - can learn more about securing a place in the industry.

In addition to the Career Fair hosting recruiters, top studios and universities seeking promising new talent, the Ukie Careers Bar will offer four days worth of insightful talks, panellists and sessions, alongside one-to-one careers advice workshops to help you improve the chances of getting that dream games job. Visitors are encouraged to bring their CVs and work portfolios to gain professional, personalised feedback.

We're calling on industry experts now to come and share their expert insider knowledge and advice with attendees, either as a speaker or to volunteer and be on hand to give informal one-to-one advice to the Bar's visitors. If you're interested, fill in this form.

Talks will cover all disciplines in the games industry, from the nitty gritty of games development such as programming and design, to publishing careers in PR, marketing and community management. 

Diversity is absolutely key to the success of the Careers Bar and we want to ensure that the speakers are as representative as possible. This is a real opportunity to show off the best of the games talent in the UK and inspire the next generation of talent, as well as hone your own speaking skills.
