Graduate Game Design Jobs

If you’re looking for graduate game design jobs in the UK, we’d be keen to hear from you here at Day One Technologies – a leading elearning company based near Leeds in West Yorkshire.

For over 20 years, we’ve been one of the leading elearning companies in the UK, and incorporate game development principles within many of our training solutions to make content as effective and engaging as possible.

We have several graduates who have worked with us for years. However, we’ve been equally proud to see several employees go on to pursue their dream jobs at game development or media companies such as the BBC, having gained valuable commercial experience working with us.

The elearning sector has proven to be both pandemic-proof and recession-proof in recent years, and continues to see steady growth. It can be an excellent environment for a graduate game designer / developer to unleash his or her creative and technical abilities.

The role is for 30+ hours per week, with flexibility in start and finish times and the opportunity to work 2 days per week from home if desired.

Multiple positions are currently available.
