In addition, the successful candidate would assist with creating assets for use by the marketing department (screenshots, in-game footage, etc) as well as involvement in community management (monitoring community forums etc).

The successful applicant will have experience of PC gaming – preferably the simulation genre – and familiarity with Microsoft Office tools such as Excel and Word.
Experience with graphics programs such as Photoshop would be an advantage.
