What attracted you to working at BettingJobs?
"I was particularly interested in the iGaming industry. Before starting at BettingJobs, I was familiar with Sports Betting/iGaming previously, so working for a company within the sector was very appealing.
The positive working environment and corporate culture at BettingJobs was attractive to me. And, after speaking with members of the team during the interview process, the people/office environment seemed like a great fit.
Furthermore, BettingJobs offer various opportunities to travel the world throughout the year, for the likes of conferences and incentive trips."
Describe the challenges you've faced throughout your first year, and how you overcame these?
"I particularly enjoy placing candidates who have chosen to relocate to different countries for new roles, and hearing how happy they are to have found an exciting new career whilst having the ability to travel to new places."
What's your best advice for someone starting out in recruitment?
"The best advice I would give to someone starting out in recruitment would be to work hard - it will be worth it.
Ensure sure you are building your network constantly on LinkedIn and other platforms and attend all the events and conferences you can.
Be yourself and be confident when networking with people, and you will begin to grow from strength to strength as well as making lifelong friendships with some of the great people who work within the industry."
