Gaming and esports jobs platform Hitmarker has partnered with British Esports Association to provide career support to students and young people.
British Esports Association has updated its careers hub to “include the latest advice and information on different job roles within esports,” including content from its new partner.
Hitmarker will provide a job feed for use on British Esports Association’s website, showing the latest available positions as well as a “highlighted UK job per week.” The association will receive a small commission from referrals to Hitmarker’s website, which will go towards funding its operations.
Richard Huggan, Managing Director of Hitmarker, spoke on the collaboration in a release: “We’ve long admired the hard work of everyone at the British Esports Association, and it’s great to formally combine forces with them to help young people, students, and others uncover more information about the many career opportunities available in our industry.”
The deal is currently planned to stand until the end of the year, with an opportunity for an extension should both parties be happy with the collaboration.
Chester King, CEO and Founder of the British Esports Association, commented: “Hitmarker is the go-to esports jobs site, so we’re naturally thrilled to be partnering with the team. We look forward to producing a host of content to help people find the right advice and information they need, in order to make informed choices on pursuing a career in esports.”
A UK-based company itself, Hitmarker has been establishing new partnerships to better serve its domestic esports jobs market in recent months. In July, it partnered with The NUEL to help university students enter the industry. Earlier this month, it unveiled a strategic partnership with Executives In Sport Group to bolster its offering of executive and leadership roles in British and European markets.
Esports Insider says: Hitmarker has established many deals in 2020 that, we believe, has strengthened its positioning and made it an integral part of the overall esports ecosystem. Partnering with the British Esports Association fits into that vision and could well assist in ushering in the next generation of esports personnel in Britain.
