Gaming and esports jobs platform Hitmarker has entered a strategic partnership with executive search firm Executives In Sport Group.
The agreement is geared towards the “top end of the talent market” in esports and gaming.
Hitmarker will utilise Executives in Sport Group as its official search partner for executive and leadership roles across esports and gaming in British and European markets.
Richard Huggan, Managing Director of Hitmarker, commented on the alliance: “We’re passionate about doing everything we can to support the UK and European esports and gaming markets, but we’re also mindful of overextending ourselves at this early stage in our company’s development, which is why this partnership with The Executives in Sport Group is so crucial.
“EISG will allow us to serve every level of the hiring market with a best-in-class solution and will bring more quality employment opportunities to everybody in our region that’s looking to enter and advance in our space.”
In April this year, Hitmarker established a partnership with New Level Recruiting, catering towards those searching for executive and leadership roles in North America. It has since unveiled agreements with NASEF, 1,000 Dreams Fund, and The NUEL.
Darren Simmons, Managing Director of The Executives In Sport Group, added: “We’re seeing a real upwards trend of professionals from traditional sports backgrounds now making the move into the world of esports, showing that things are now clearly at a point where people recognise esports as a huge opportunity and an industry that’s here to stay. We’re also starting to see more and more esports professionals making moves within the sector and, as such, the talent is becoming broader across the industry.”
Esports Insider says: Hitmarker has done a great job in bolstering its offering to ensure that it covers as much of the jobs market as possible, in multiple regions. This partnership appears to be another solid step for Hitmarker and, hopefully, it provides real results and opportunities in the industry.
