The first ever iGaming Recruitment Open Day, organised by CSB, operators of VacancyCentre.com, under the patronage of The Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA), was described as an overwhelming success.

Hundreds of potential job seekers visited the stands from early morning till late evening, where they had the opportunity to meet up with iGaming operators, the staff at VacancyCentre.com and the officials at The Lotteries and Gaming Authority.

In the afternoon, Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Finance, Hon. Tonio Fenech MP, via video conferencing, officially addressed the event. He highlighted that Malta is an ideal location for gaming companies who could enjoy a very strict regulatory framework expected by reputable companies.

Jonathan M. Dalli, Business Development Executive at CSB, said; “We are very proud to have organised an event of this magnitude, for the first time ever on the island. We have always considered this event as the perfect platform for promoting career opportunities in this booming industry, and we are grateful to have organised this under the patronage of the regulator of the sector”.

Well over 400 people submitted their CVs to be considered for a job in the industry.

Mario Galea, CEO of the LGA, highlighted; “We are pleased to see such an unexpected high turnout. The Authority has reached another of its objectives that is to create job opportunities for the Maltese in the iGaming business.”
