Orna Holland


Hopefully the site has told you everything you need to know about student opportunities in our Kingdom. Just in case there are a few unanswered questions running around your mind, though, we asked Orna Holland (Farm Heroes fanatic and Global Head of Talent) to share a few hints and tips about all thing applications.


Do I need to be fluent in English?
Yes, you do. English is the mother tongue of King, so while we don’t mind you slipping in a bit of Swedish, Spanish or Romanian here and there, you’ll need to be able to speak, read and write English as if it were second nature.

Do you accept international applications?
Sure. The Kingdom is now represented by people from at least 40 countries. And it grows by the day. Our recruiters will be happy to give you advice if you need it.

What should I include in my application?
Your CV and contact details for starters. And if you think we should be seeing your portfolio, then send a link to that too.

Will my information be kept confidential?
Absolutely. We follow all the rules when it comes to dealing with personal details and sensitive data, and train all our recruiters and hiring managers appropriately. Our promise to you is that nothing you send us will be seen by anyone who shouldn’t be seeing it.

What should I do if I am having technical difficulties applying for a role via the website?
You’ll have caught us on a bad day. Chances are we’ll be fixing it at that very moment, so please just check back later.

How will I be contacted about my application?
To start with you can track the progress via the application system. And if we want to invite you in for an interview, we’ll get in touch to organise a good time for both of us.

What should I wear for the interview?
Whatever makes you feel comfortable. We’re interested in what you’ve got to say, not whether you are sporting an Afro, a handlebar moustache or wearing candy-crush encrusted shoes. Actually, we would love to see the shoes.

How do I prepare for my interview?
As ever, do your research. Learn about our games. Play our games. Take a look at news articles. We’re mentioned quite a lot at the moment.

What if I need to change my interview date?
It happens. So just get in touch with our recruitment team and we’ll help you reschedule.
