Diversity Matters

At Dovetail Games we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for everyone who works here or with us, regardless to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion (or lack thereof) education background and game preferences. 

 We are committed to improving our diversity and inclusion practices and processes and believe a diverse workforce is vital to our successes and has a positive impact for all us. Diversity is a central pillar to our people strategy, as part of this strategy we have committed to adopting inclusive recruitment processes and are working towards a goal that wherever possible individuals from underrepresented groups are included on the shortlist for interviews.

 We particularly encourage applications from women, disabled, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), LBGTQ+ candidates and those from lower social-economic backgrounds, as these groups are underrepresented throughout the games industry.

Additionally, Dovetail Games is a Disability Confident employer. This means that we are committed to employing disabled people and will:

  • actively look to attract and recruit disabled people
  • provide a fully inclusive and accessible recruitment process
  • offer an interview to disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the job
  • be flexible with assessing people so disabled applicants have the best opportunity to demonstrate that they can do the job
  • make reasonable adjustments as required.

 At the individuals request all roles will be considered for part time, term time only and job shares.

 We welcome applications from ex-military personnel and from those who have the legal right to live and work in the UK, for positions on the shortage occupation list, we are a Tier 2 sponsor employer and welcome applications from world-wide.

 We are committed to promoting equal opportunities.




Dovetail Games and the Games Industry is the most diverse it has ever been, but we recognise that there is still more work to do, to move forward on this we have taken the following actions:

  •  Corporate Ambassador of Women in games, a not for profit advocating, supporting Women and Girls in Games and getting into games.
  •  We are a signatory for the Tech Talent Charter a leading movement in addressing inequality for the UK tech sector.
  •  Dovetail Games are a Pledge Launch Partner for UKIE*  Diversity and Inclusion campaign #RaisetheGame, a games industry collective commitment to improving diversity within the games industry, you can find the latest Game Industry UKIE census here.

Our Values


Make fabulous stuff

We are passionate about crafting high quality simulations that excite and engage both experienced and new players.


Enhance life

Our aim is to make software that enhances life. We don’t make games that are addictive, promote gambling, glorify violence or are discriminatory in any way. We would rather celebrate the human condition than devalue it.


Continuously improve

We work as one team, communicating frequently, openly and honestly in the knowledge that when we work together great things happen.


Walk tall

We are proud of who we are, and the entertainment we deliver to our customers around the world. We don’t work for Dovetail Games – we ARE Dovetail Games.
