Sasha Borg - Tailwag Recruitment

The impact of the pandemic in the last two years has left companies more limited in terms of how particular they can afford to be in their recruitment process and shifted priorities for potential employees.

This is a view shared by Sacha Borg, Recruitment Manager at Tailwag Recruitment, who goes on to say:

“The shift to a remote working or hybrid structure has left companies focusing more on the soft skills candidates possess and how much of a culture fit they are within the company,” he explains. “A lot of companies have had to find a way to strike a balance between this and more tech-based skills to have teams perform at their best.”

Apart from the skills and experience needed for specialised roles, Mr Borg highlights languages as a highly sought-after skill in the industry today. “A lot of gaming related roles are specifically targeted towards specific markets and audiences, so having native or extremely fluent speakers of particular languages would be beneficial for the company,” he says.

Having himself worked with a number of gaming companies both internally and as a recruitment consultant, Mr Borg is extremely positive about the benefits of working in the industry, from perks to flexible working arrangements to opportunities for growth.

“Once you break into the gaming industry as a candidate, the sky really is the limit. If you put in the work, are honest in what you do, and seek help when you feel you need it, nothing can hinder your career progression. It is an amazing environment to work in, so you might as well make the most of the perks while you’re there!”
