We’re looking for a Games Developer to work alongside our Training Academy team for 36.25 hours per week. This is a Fixed Term contract for 12 months and the role will be predominantly home-based, with some travel to our regional offices required.

The Role

Cornerstone is one of Scotland’s largest charities and a leading provider of care and support to around 2,400 adults, children and young people with learning disabilities, autism and complex care needs. We are committed to making sure the people we support are able to live the best life possible. One of the ways we hope to achieve this is by ensuring our colleagues have all the right tools and training to help them be the very best they can be. Our Training Academy is an SQA and ILM approved centre and our award-winning team offer a holistic range of training interventions across healthcare and management.

We are excited to share this great opportunity for a Games Developer to work with our Training Academy. You’ll be responsible for planning, developing and managing the delivery of a range of effective and engaging digital learning projects, in line with our strategic objectives. You’ll work collaboratively with the fellow Project Lead, a Graphic Designer, as well as our Training Academy Lead and other colleagues within the Training Academy. You’ll be involved in all aspects of the project as it relates to gamification, from the initial concept designs through to delivery, including the storyboarding and scripting, and the production of audio features.

About You

You’ll need to bring:

  • a relevant Computer Science degree (or equivalent)
  • experience creating games (either academically, commercially or personal projects) and a strong portfolio of work
  • experience with web-based software technologies
  • solid C++ programming skills
  • ability to write solid, reliable and efficient code
  • a high level of accuracy, attention to detail and a focus on quality
  • open-minded team player attitude
  • ability to work efficiently under tight deadlines
  • passionate about playing and making video games

This role has been funded by the Scottish Government Adapt and Thrive Programme for 12 months and will play a key role in Cornerstone’s Covid-19 recovery plans.
