Green Man Gaming has been recognised at the St. Mary’s Be Smart/ Employability Confident Awards 2021 for their contribution to the Be SMART Programme in 2021.

The partnership kicked off in March 2021 with Green Man Gaming offering paid marketing internships for St. Mary’s University students from underrepresented backgrounds through the Be SMART programme.

The internship rotated through all marketing divisions including performance marketing, brand, affiliate, influencers, CRM, and social media as well as mentoring from senior Green Man Gaming staff across all areas of the business.

Green Man Gaming has been recognised for the Outstanding Employer Contribution Award with the university commenting:

“We recognise Green Man Gaming for demonstrating true partnership; their commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, and prioritizing student welfare and growth went beyond and above. We thank GMG HR Manager, Ilona Popczyk, for tirelessly supporting not just Be SMART but our other projects. She has been an instrument for change, and an ally. We are grateful to her and GMG.”

The company was also awarded the runner-up award for the Best Internship Provider Award. Feedback from the inaugural intern in the programme commenting:

“They made me feel right at home. They were so helpful when I was going through mental health issues and for the first time I
felt human and that I was allowed to be stressed. I have learned so much about Marketing and made so many new connections.”
