Seeking to diversify its business services, independent betting group Star Sports has announced the launch of its new industry recruitment vertical – ‘Star Recruitment’ (starrecruitment.bet).
The new division, which will provide staffing solutions for the global gambling industry, is led by sector resourcing and talent development veteran Simon Banks who will serve Chief Executive (CEO) of the new Star Sports vertical.
Updating stakeholders, Banks outlines Star Sports industry knowledge as a core strength for launching an industry recruitment service.
“Star Recruitment is a logical extension of the Star Sports brand and we aim to adhere to the core values of our parent company: honesty, integrity and discretion, as we grow the business. The global gambling industry is facing a future of rapid expansion and operators will need to source the talent required to meet market demands” Banks details on launching Star Recruitment.
Star Sports Founder, Ben Keith, one of the industry most recognisable bookmaking/racing figureheads, backs Star Recruitment, detailing significant opportunities in staff resourcing amid a rapidly changing gambling/betting sector.
“These are very exciting times for the global gambling industry and there are some great opportunities for professionals to develop their career in places all around the world.
“As Star Sports has expanded, we have recruited a lot of staff at all levels, so we understand the challenge that operators face in securing the best talent.
“We are seeing new jurisdictions opening up, such as the legalising of online sports betting in a number of US states, which means the search for the best talent available will become increasingly important.”
