We always strive to provide the best customer care possible, are genuine about quality and go the extra mile for our candidates and clients, so it’s lovely that word has got around to the great and the good of the games industry.”
At least 2020 has been good for one local business this year, hopefully 2021 will be another good one for all Brighton’s games industry community.
