As part of the deal, Hitmarker will gain access to a “new and ever-increasing pipeline of potential hires” for the jobs on its platform. It also hopes to better support UK-based students that are pursuing esports through “education, mentorship, and promotion.”
Richard Huggan, Managing Director of Hitmarker, spoke on the deal in a release: “When The NUEL approached us about working together for the benefit of university students here in the UK, we jumped at the opportunity. We’re committed to doing as much as we possibly can to advance the cause of esports globally, but it’s fantastic to be able to give something back a little bit closer to home. We hope hundreds of students will benefit from this partnership in the months and years ahead, and we look forward to working with all of them to help them reach their goals.”

The NUEL will have a live feed of esports jobs on its website from Hitmarker and offer dedicated one-to-one guidance with a member of Hitmarker’s team to a limited number of students. The companies will also collaborate on career-focused content and events throughout the agreement.
Josh Williams, Founder of The NUEL, added: “Helping to develop pathways into the esports industry is a critical part of what The NUEL does, so we’re incredibly excited to be working more closely with Hitmarker. By connecting the support and expertise of the Hitmarker team with the university esports community, we hope to help even more students with their professional development.”
Esports Insider says: This seems like an intensive, well-thought-out deal between Hitmarker and The NUEL which could truly make a difference when it comes to ushering in the next level of talent in esports across all facets of the industry.
