Anna Grech

Legal Counsel

Working at the MGA has presented a series of opportunities which are unique to the sector and to Malta at large.

In my role, I am entrusted with evidence-based policy development which requires outreach, both at a local and international level, and continuous communication with departments within the Authority, as well as with key industry stakeholders. This gives me the opportunity to hold discussions with and garner feedback from various stakeholders, while continuously expanding my knowledge, ultimately feeding into and improving the policy-making process.

The work I do from an International Affairs perspective further feeds into policy development and allows me to, among other things, build relationships with foreign counterparts and closely follow EU developments.

When I started working at the Authority in 2020 as an IT Intern, my mindset focused on one primary objective: gathering as much knowledge and understanding of the field as possible. Today, I am pleased that my experience with MGA went beyond my initial focus. I got to work on many different technical projects while learning from experienced mentors and an organisation that truly believes in the potential of its employees. Moreover, MGA’s distinctive nature and culture persuaded me to continue this journey after graduating and work with my team, striving for a better MGA every day.

I had the opportunity to join the AML team in November 2021 after a 15-year career in the banking industry.

Our team is a diverse one – everyone comes with different experiences and we all do our utmost to share our knowledge and apply it in day-to-day operations. Working at the MGA has given me the opportunity to work with other authorities and these experiences have invaluable takeaways. One of my greatest achievements was making a strong collaborative effort to get Malta removed from the FATF greylist. I have always believed that “L’union fait la force” and together, we will succeed in maintaining Malta’s reputation as a trustworthy and leading licensing jurisdiction.

Karmen Cuk

Financial Compliance Officer

Working at the MGA is a unique opportunity which allows me to take my technical experience and apply it to a regulatory function, monitoring the financial position and assessing the financial stability risk of MGA’s operators.

I find my professional voice is valued at MGA. Within the Regulatory Supervision team, my input and comments regarding the internal processes are not only welcomed but discussed further, so much so that some recommendations were also implemented. I attend several learning seminars and sponsored training monthly which have had a significant impact on my productivity and skill advancement.

I found the team to be very supportive from day one – I am very happy to be a part of it.

The MGA provides a very friendly and collaborative work culture that allows employees to work together and effectively take on a challenging environment.

The work I do has always been very stimulating, dynamic and rewarding.

I believe that the MGA truly holds the employees’ development at heart and nurtures employees to consistently improve and progress. On a personal level, I have been given the opportunity to further my studies and, after almost four years within the Compliance Department, I moved to the Authorisations Department as a Systems Auditor, a move that will help me evolve and improve my skills. I am confident that my future within the Authority will bring about continuous challenges and a further sense of pride.

Reuben Bonett

Authorisations Team Lead

MGA’s working environment is very welcoming, which made it very easy for me to integrate with my peers and feel part of the team from day one. Thanks to the professional setup, training and guidance provided, MGA has given me the opportunity for career progression.

I started as an Officer with the Research Department, a couple of years later I moved to the Authorisations Department and was then promoted to Senior Executive and as of lately as a Team Lead.

MGA supported me to enhance my knowledge and skillset in the ever-dynamic Gaming Sector, whilst also giving me the exposure to meet and interact with contributors and stakeholders in the Industry, making this a positively appreciated journey that I am still looking forward to.
