From game design and animation to testing and audio, the gaming industry hosts an array of career opportunities and is one of the fastest growing industries in the UK.
The industry has proven its resilience, with 10 times more gaming companies hiring right now than there are making redundancies. But despite this, there is a lack of gender diversity, with women making up just 20% of the global workforce in the gaming industry.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Adele Cutting, BAFTA award-winning audio director and founder of Soundcuts, to find out more about her career journey in this fast growing industry. Having worked in the gaming industry since the mid-nineties and after 15 years working for Electronic Arts, Adele set up her own audio company, Soundcuts, who have worked with the likes of Microsoft, Nickelodeon, Frontier Developments and Ubisoft.
