Games Industry Recruitment Specialist.

High Score Recruitment Ltd is a dedicated recruitment service to the games industry, specifically in the games development sector. Using our knowledge and enthusiasm for this great industry we work closely with studios to find them the right candidates for their vacancies, either contract or permanent.

High Score consists of a small team headed by Dan Shiel and Hollie Heraghty.They have spent years recruiting within the games industry and have successfully assisted candidates in finding positions in a number of the greatest studios out there.

The games industry can be a ‘small world’ and we recognise that you may know somebody suitable for one of the many roles we are currently recruiting for. So why not refer your friends and colleagues to us?

If you know somebody with experience as an Artist, Animator, Programmer, Designer or within any other area of games development then we’re glad to help.

Our referral fee structure is based on the starting salary that a referred candidate is sucessfully placed on, see the breakdown here:

  • When a referred candidates salary is up to £30,000 = £250 referral bonus
  • When the salary is between £30,000 and £45,000 = £500 referral bonus
  • When the candidates salary is £45,000 and above = £750 referral bonus

In our short time within the industry we have already paid out referral bonuses to candidates, and wish to do so many more times moving forward.

All that we would require from you is a name, job title, and an email address and/or telephone number of the person you wish to refer to us.

Please email the details of any referrals to, or fill out our Candidate Referral Form.

Here are a couple:

Dan was a great pleasure to have looking out for me. He found me a great position matching my skill set and I’ve enjoyed working there ever since. He was with me at each step of the process and gave good advice on how I should proceed throughout. He has kept in contact with me to touch base at intervals and is very easy to talk to.

Neal Richards. He is now working at an exciting company as an iPhone Programmer.

From the beginning, Dan presented me full information about the studios and asked what I’m looking for and what I think. Throughout the recruitment process he gave me good advices, informed of every step. I feel very comfortable to talk with him, we stay in touch.
