Would love to do this but start Uni at the beginning of October so suspect I wouldn't be able to fulfil the 3 months

Same, I go back to Uni for my second year at the start of October. If it wasn't for that I would apply for this without a moments hesitation, I have done quite a lot of testing before and only live about 20 minutes from London.

Bugger.

Should apply anyway and see what they say, i'm sure they can work something out, if you're an excellent candidate but can only commit to 2 months and 3 weeks, i'm sure they can accomodate you!

Plus you'll get Interview experience either way, can't hurt ;)

Seeing as I'm always so critical about improving the game I seem the perfect candidate :p

Perhaps you could give us more details about what the job role involves, the salary/travel expenses, the "possible" overtime? (presuming the standard hours are 9-5 would that be working late or doing weekends etc). I'm sure others will be thinking similar questions. :)

so apply...

they will then most likely send you a person spec, job spec and salary details...

isn't that how it works?

Posted this in the other thread so will repeat it here:

If you're looking for a first step into the industry, you literally couldn't do better than get this job. The Sports Interactive name holds massive weight in the industry and the experience you'll get there will set you up greatly for future roles.

Or, if you're lucky enough, SI will keep you on longer. Win/Win situation.

We (I) wish we (I) could get that job but it is as possible as AEK Athens winning the league in Greece :p

This may be a silly question based on the application closing date, but would we find out before the closing date if we got it or not?

Peter G - deadline is next friday so make sure to do one by then.

LARulz - I doubt it. They'll wait til the deadline in order to give everyone an equal chance, I would imagine.

you should re-write your c.v. to match the position for which you're applying anyway so it's no problem :thup:

if you don't know how to write one there are loads of good sites that give advice, just google it :)

A couple of guys could always get together and house share for 3 months, i suspect theres been many people over the years who've travelled down to London for the summer. Just announce youself if you've been successful and see if any like minded people want a 2/3 bed flat share.

You'll have to leave Wales if you ever intend on being a games tester - there's nowhere there that's suitable.

Hence, me being in London.
