Join the team!

Are you a fan of Now Play This and want to get involved in the production process? We are looking to fill two freelance positions for this year’s festival. Both are available as entry level positions and we are keen to hear from all voices. We are committed to promoting equality and diversity in everything we do, and to valuing the diversity of everyone involved in the festival. As such we encourage applications from candidates traditionally under-represented in games, and we’re happy to discuss extra support if required during the interview process. The application deadline for both positions at 2pm on February 14th. Successful applications will be invited for an interview.


Assistant Producer for Now Play This 2022

We are looking to expand our team with a Freelance Assistant Producer to help in the lead-up to and during the festival. The successful candidate would work with the producers to provide management and coordination support for the festival exhibition and surrounding events. 

Who we are looking for:

You are conscientious, organised and can communicate clearly in writing and face to face. You’re able to prioritise your workload effectively and handle multiple tasks at once. You do not need professional experience in the field as this is an entry level role, but passion for experimental games and putting on events would be great. For example, if you’re putting things on in your spare time we’d love to know about it. 

The job is approximately 16 days on a freelance basis over March and early April, at least 10 of those in London, so this position is not suitable for remote working. The fee is £150/day.

  • Booking travel and accommodation
  • Assisting with get-in and get-out of exhibition

We’ll want to see accounts you run but we’re open to this being entry level so that can be either in a professional or personal capacity. Knowledge of and passion for experimental games would be a plus.
