The UK’s gaming industry has mostly shrugged off a wider pandemic-induced slump to become one of the country’s top employers.

Global recruiter Robert Walters and data provider Vacancysoft have published a report called ‘Gaming: Perfect Play for Growth’ which highlights the continued strength of the UK’s video game industry.

The UK is home to some of the most iconic video game studios in the world including the likes of Rare, Codemasters, Rockstar North, Criterion, and Creative Assembly.
