I'd love to work within the gaming industry, being a new graduate I'm not looking for megabucks (money isn't the biggest motivating factor), just a job where I can practice IT and would not be averse to doing other things as well ,variety is always interesting, Particularly if it involves miniatures etc.. I like to paint.
I'm Graduating (This week yay), Bsc with Distinction in Network Computing, and I also hold a HND in Computer Support and Admin. I currently live in Scotland but wouldn't mind relocating to anywhere in the UK (or even further afield if that ever happened). Know this: I know how to work hard, and believe if you're paying for my time you deserve the best effort. You can't gain respect by leaving a job half done.

Thanks for reading this self-pimping advert and if you're interested or want to know more than send a PM.

Unless you can find a BIG company, you would be part time (at best) and (more or less) a volunteer…

For most of the gaming companies I have had the rare opportunites to work with, the "IT Guy" is somone on the creative team, who is also "good with computers"

Good luck, but (unless things have recently drastically changed), the IT stuff falls under "other duties as assigned" in this industry…

Jagex in cambridge is hiring a lot of people -- they don't have an IT person listed but spec apps can't hurt.

pphalen, that is not a bad thing. If someone does hire him on as their IT Support, promoted to IT Director after a year, he gets to add an impressive title to his resume, works in a field he loves, helps out with the creative side of things and keeps their IT systems in top-notch (for a miniatures company) shape.

That is a no losers scenario, kinda rare in wargaming…
