I'm gutted that Matt's leaving, it was one of the videos he produced that made me check out Videogamer and join their community in the first place. Him and you guys are also the reason that I changed the line of work that I was heading into from acting on stage to video game journalism. What's also gutting is I literally fit every single one of those requirements except for the fact that I would only be able to get to the office at like 5pm on weekdays :( Hopefully you guys will be hiring in the future as well though :)

Think most of us gave up on that one a long time ago :(

(Which is a damned shame as it was brilliant)

Good luck to all who apply, my own efforts to make a 5 min video for work took several hours so I suspect I'm just outside the level of talent required....

Shame to see Matt Lees go but good luck to you in the future Matt and to Chris who now gets to shoulder the responsibility of maintaining them YT stats ;-)

KAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHN!

Ahh damn it, this was some *****ty news to wake up to. Been enjoying the videos here for the past year and it's always crappy to see something you really enjoy have to end. But the show must go on.

I will be very sad to see Matt leave, his comedy, his free reign over video content mixed in with some serious and important messages about the games industry was the jewel in videogamer's crown and he'll be hard to replace, HOWEVER.

As I said the show must go on, and this past year Chris has had quite a few of his own videos on the channel, I don't know the in's and out's of it, but all I know is that I've equally enjoyed a lot of Chris's videos, especially the GTA and the Dead Rising streams, alongside the various videos on 'boring indie games that Simon won't like'. The pairing between Simon and Chris is brilliant so all is not lost!

Furthermore, videogamer will know what they're losing in Matt, so any replacement they hire will need to be of a similar sort of quality to keep up the quality video content. Such a person will be hard to find but they are out there.

So, best of luck to the forumites! Someone with good knowledge of videogamer and it's community will definitely have an extra string to their bow so those saying they definitely won't get it, well you never know! I would apply myself having produced videos with my best mate for over a year now if not for the fact that A) I'm halfway through my degree, B) I'm nowhere near London, and C) it'd probably be to a mind-numbingly ***** quality. All good things come to an end and I'll certainly remember fondly the good year or two of excellent free video content we've received. Best of luck to all applying!

An hour away is nothing. I'd be willing to relocate from the north east for a job opportunity like this. Problem is I havent been to university for a media degree so that pretty much crosses me out. I hope to get into a university this year though to work towards my dream. Best of luck to you anyway, I'd love a forum member to get the job, as they would know the website inside and out.
