It’s time to shine a spotlight on our new partner Amplo. So what is it they do?
Amplo operates as an HR partner for individuals working in the creative sector, and that obviously includes the games industry! Artists, writers, developers… they can all enjoy the freedom of a freelancer while still being protected as an employee.
The primary focus of Amplo’s business is payrolling, which includes offering both short-term and long-term employment contracts to match the needs of each assignment. Clients, both freelancers and hiring organizations, have access to a dedicated point of contact who is highly knowledgeable and easily accessible. It makes dealing with the paperwork a lot easier for everyone involved.
In addition, Amplo offers HelloAmplo, an online dashboard for digital work. The company’s recruiters are responsible for following up on job vacancies. Their personalized services include tailored advice to meet each client’s specific needs.
How do they help recruiting game studios?
Their contracts are also Tax Shelter eligible, which, may we remind you: is now also available for the game sector since the beginning of this year. We’re proud to have members such as Cyborn and Possibly Pixels who have already taken advantage of these services.
How do they help job-hunting game developers?
Game developers can work as self-employed individuals and use the Amplo network to find jobs, while they take care of the paperwork. In addition to their own network, Amplo works with Crewbooking, an online matchmaking platform for the audiovisual- and event sector, creating a profile there will allow jobhunters to find international employers.
Or, Amplo can act as an in-between employer, so developers can have all the benefits of being self-employed, without all the administrative worries: Amplo covers social security, pension, tax, sick & vacation pay while the gamedevs receive their net salary.
Want to talk to them in person?
Amplo has sponsored quite a few local game events like the Belgian Game Awards, Unwrap, Global Game Jam, Game Max and others, so you can usually bump into them there or at one of their many talks at schools like DAE Howest or Luca School of Arts. But a sure-fire moment to hit them up for a chat is on June 8, at our 10-years Flega Party!
