Thriving Manchester publishing house attempts to level up the north side divide

BGFG

A rapidly growing gaming and tech publishing house is to create 30 new jobs to further enhance Manchester’s reputation as an economic powerhouse in digital and creative industries.

The new jobs in multimedia and digital content follow a successful investment round completed by the team at By Gamers for Gamers.

The Manchester-based firm, which announced its move to popular workspace Use Space in September 2020, raised significant monies via angel investment to facilitate working growth capital and support its acquisition ambitions.

As a result, it is now commencing a major recruitment drive to attract talented people from across the UK to support the development of its growing online media outlets, which include WePC.com, PCGuide.com and EsportsVerdict.com

The company intends to tap into Manchester’s potential for growth and help ‘level up’ the economic North-South divide.

Co-Founder Craig Kirkcaldy, who headed up the investment round, said: “Manchester is an exciting, growing and vibrant place with a burgeoning digital and creative business scene coming together to produce a collective force.

“The latest investment means we can push ahead with our plans to increase the talent in our business and create 30 new jobs.

“We are looking to recruit the best people from across the UK and introduce them to Manchester and the North, maybe for the first time.

“The digital landscape of the UK is changing fast with some of the biggest names in media heading North, not least with the BBC who have invested heavily in Salford already. We aim to be in the vanguard as Manchester powers forward as it will as we emerge from the pandemic.”

By Gamers for Gamers, founded in April 2019 by brothers Andrew and Craig Kirckaldy and Will Blears, comprises a team of experienced, passionate individuals dedicated to bringing readers the best in unbiased PC tech, gaming, and Esports news.

With millions of readers each month, its continued purpose is to provide readers with hands-on reviews and practical buying advice as well as tips to get the most out of their tech and gaming setup.

Its network of sites, all work together to form a tight-knit family of consumer-focused brands with one goal: empowering readers.

Craig added: “We are lucky to already have a team comprising gamers from all walks of life that share a passion for the technology they play on, and now we want to enable others to join that team and be part of an excellent workplace culture.

“Being in Manchester and being in a warehouse-style space which includes an immersive racing Sim and a virtual reality station we have a workplace to match the lifestyle that people can enjoy in the North.

“We want to accelerate the momentum of Manchester being a leading digital and creative hub of the UK.  We have further ambitious plans for recruitment and growth. Manchester offers some incredible opportunities.”
