    • The Community Manager helps build and maintain the success of a game by looking after its fans. 
    • Players are the heart of most successful games. As Community Manager you listen to players’ views and feed them back to the studio. You help make positive spaces for fans to interact in and grow a loyal following for the game.
    • You will love talking to people across all kinds of channels, from social media and newsletters to live online streaming and real-world games events. You’ll be able to handle criticism and disruptive behaviour, as well as enjoy sharing updates and new content with fans.
