YOUR LEARNING JOURNEY
Some people working as a HR Manager have a degree in business, human resources or psychology. Above all, you should be communicative, empathetic and organised.
As a professional, you’ll create and implement policies around employee matters including payroll, sick-leave and training. You’ll have experience in management software tools and collaborative work platforms like Trello and Basecamp.
Working in the games industry is highly competitive and you’ll need to make sure your CV stands out to employers and course leaders.
As an HR Manager, experience in the game sector might not always be essential but working in a previous human resources role will be. Demonstrating a passion for games will also give you the advantage. Your CV should outline your work history and showcase successful staff policies you’ve delivered. For more general ideas on developing your CV, see our top tips page.
Whatever role you are working in, it is essential that you understand the game making process. You can head to our build a game section for first steps; join a regular game jam to build up your skills & network; or start modding others games to gain experience.
