Midlands continues to attract digital jobs

The reputation of Birmingham and the Midlands area continues to grow as an area for games developers and other digital skills. The video game developer Codemasters is hiring around 100 new employees at both the company’s HQ in Leamington Spa and in Birmingham where the company has its development studio. In the report on the Techwatch website, Simon Miles from the company is quoted in a BBC interview as saying "The skilled talent pool in Birmingham, along with the support available for developers in the area, and across the Midlands generally has created a dynamic and creative local business community.” The company is looking for their new recruits from both the Midlands and outside the area. The company started in 1986 and its most famous game currently is the Dirt series based on rally driving.
