Careers & Enterprise Company: Games Careers Week – Enterprise Adviser
Declan Cassidy is the Chief Executive of Into Games and a Careers & Enterprise Company Enterprise Adviser. To celebrate #GamesCareerWeek, Declan spoke to the CEC about how he helps inspire young people to consider a career in the gaming industry.
Excerpt: “My day job is heading up, Into Games, the national skills and careers service for the videogames industry – I was an Enterprise Adviser before I started in this position and I definitely feel that the experience of working with a school on their careers offering influenced my decision to do what I do now…
My highlights included raising £5,000 for my school’s STEM projects, which focussed on students connecting with companies that work on clean energy programmes and how we’d put together a successful careers day around space and aeronautics.
Anyone has the capability to have a career in games if they know what the options are. Having an Enterprise Adviser from the games industry in a school would open up that conversation and a world of possibilities to students.”
