Manchester, UK, July 17, 2014 – EON Reality, the world’s leading provider of Virtual Reality software, systems, and applications, has created 15 new jobs at their European headquarters in Manchester.  All eleven men and four women are graduates from the company’s VR (Virtual Reality) Innovation Academy based in Central Park, east Manchester. 

Having completed the year-long part-time 3D content creation course, funded by EON Reality, the students have qualified as either 3D developers, 3D artists or 2D creative.

Ken Swain, EON Reality’s Managing Director in the UK said: “We’re really pleased to recruit these talented young people. They have worked extremely hard over the past year and shown a real passion for 3D content production. Last year’s recruits have just come back from Brazil and these graduates will get the chance to work on some equally exciting projects with global brands in the fields of education, business and entertainment.  We are committed to training and recruiting local young people and look forward to welcoming a new cohort of students to our VR Innovation Academy in September.”
