iGEN and GamingMalta collaborate to attract Maltese talent into iGaming
iGEN, the iGaming European Network has launched a new initiative called ‘Why iGaming’ to promote careers in the iGaming sector in Malta. The initiative is driven by iGEN’s 22 member companies, and has the support and collaboration of GamingMalta, a nonprofit set up by the MGA and the Government of Malta.
The Why iGaming initiative has been kicked off with the launch of a new website, www.whyigaming.eu, containing over 250 open jobs from iGEN’s member companies. While the content is primarily aimed at Maltese residents, it also contains information for foreign nationals who are interested in relocation to Malta in order to work in the industry. Over time the website will be built out to include even more jobs posts, information for foreign nationals seeking work in Malta and career-related industry news. While the website is a core part of the initiative, it will also be expanded to include other local career-related and community activities on behalf of the industry.
Careers in online gambling have traditionally been seen as attractive in Malta due to the salaries and perks on offer as well as exciting growth opportunities. However, initial research performed by Why iGaming has shown that there are perceived barriers to entry.
