Today at BettingJobs, we are celebrating Iona Harris’ first work anniversary!
To commemorate the occasion, we caught up with Iona to hear an insight into her first year at BettingJobs as well as some fun facts and hobbies.
I began my career at BettingJobs after graduating from Robert Gordon University in 2021, where I majored in Business Management with Marketing. When I moved to Glasgow from Aberdeen, I worked in hospitality roles while I settled in and found a job I was truly interested in - that was when BettingJobs came along!
Prior to starting at BettingJobs, I had little knowledge of the iGaming industry or what to expect. However, my first year at BettingJobs has been super exciting and I have been given the opportunity to learn so much about the industry, which is truly fascinating. I recently travelled to London with the team for my first ICE conference (one of the biggest events on the iGaming calendar), which was an amazing experience as I got to and meet with and speak to so many candidates and clients from all around the world.
Since starting, everyone at BettingJobs has been incredibly supportive, welcoming, and friendly, and the team culture here is second to none. I have also been given the chance to learn from my incredible mentor Carla Souter who has guided me through my first year and has shown me the ropes. Having gone from knowing nothing about the industry a year ago to now becoming a fully independent iGaming recruiter with the help of Carla and the rest of the team is something I am extremely proud of.
The opportunity to play a role in helping candidates land their dream roles and completely change their lives has been extremely rewarding. I have placed many candidates over the past year who have faced hardships such as sudden unexpected life changes or redundancy; therefore, watching them succeed in their new positions is one of my favourite parts of the job.
Fun facts / hobbies: I love to travel! In my spare time, you will find me on a city break or a beach holiday with my family / friends.
I’m a big fan of eating out, so travelling around the world and trying cuisine from different countries and cultures is a bonus!
In addition to spending time outdoors, I also enjoy taking long walks with my family and my dog Monty (pictured), as well as attending music festivals and concerts.
Both Iona’s first name and surname represent famous Scottish islands - Iona and Harris.
Congratulations on your first successful year at BettingJobs, we are so glad to have you onboard our expert team and we can’t wait to witness the trajectory of your iGaming career over the next year!
