So, what jobs are available in Wales?

There are a lot of gaming jobs available in Wales. As I mentioned massive worldwide companies are based here in Wales, so there are more Welsh people working for these companies than you think. Many companies are trying to put Wales on the map for gaming and game developing. Most companies in Wales are hiring young trainee game developers and producers to try and expand the Gaming industry. The gaming and technology industry is massively growing worldwide nearly everyday, some people say Wales doesn't have much to offer. A lot of people like myself want that to change. One day I really hope that Wales can be an major country for gaming.
