Moving to Scotland

Lively cities, historic architecture, world heritage sites, breathtaking landscapes, and countless islands. It’s no surprise that Scotland constantly tops the list for quality of life. Explore this great nation for yourself from the vibrant city of Dundee.

Dundee is set to be at the cutting edge of modern creative industries. The construction of the V&A Museum of Design has given rise to international support and funding, turning the waterfront into a social hub filled with bars, restaurants, and creative spaces. A stones throw from the Outplay Offices, the prestigious Duncan & Jordanstone art college provides unique learning opportunities for any Outplayer interested in design.

Not stopping there, Dundee is home to two Universities constantly developing talent that pushes the bounds of the technology sector. This can be felt nowhere better than Outplay Entertainment’s teams and their devotion to creating quality games.

Outplay is more than just work. You will be joining a family that has climbed Munros, hosted BBQs, taken on the Tough Mudder challenge and even ventured to the wilds of Scotland together.

We know starting afresh can be challenging. From your first arrival to moving into your new home, our bespoke relocation package covers every aspect of settling into a new country. With our help, you’ll be calling Scotland home in no time.
