Many of you may remember Mick Hobson from his time at Aardvark Swift where he quickly became a key player in Gaming industry’s recruitment sector. If you’ve been wondering where he’s been over the last year, probably the last place you’d have expected is in the battlefields of Afghanistan. But that’s where he’s been - involved in some real life “war games” as an Infantryman in the TA.


Upon returning home, Mick resolved to re-join the industry he loves and has recently launched a new division for Austin Banks Recruitment focusing on commercial roles within the Games and FMCG sectors.


According to Mick “My time in Afghanistan was a challenging experience to say the least but a character building one and gave me renewed focus on developing my career in the games industry when I got back. It also made me realize how life-like modern gaming is. First person shooters such as Call of Duty and Medal of Honour are as close to the real thing as you can get!”


Mick will be handling roles within Sales, Marketing, PR and Online/Digital Space UK wide. For more information, contact Mick at Austin Banks on 01302 822 228 or email michael@austinbanks.co.uk.
