FSB has announced the first four recruits of its graduate programme, co-developed with equal employment and work skills agency Rubik Talent.
The sports betting technology provider had launched its graduate programme to promote careers in sports betting and igaming from under-represented communities.
FSB disclosed Yan Ngo, Sammi Chong, Nafisa Zaman and Benjamin Allan as the first successful trainees of its graduate programme, nurtured by Rubik Talent.
The graduates will be embedded within the FSB business for two years, starting this autumn with a view to potential full-time employment at the end of the programme.
Sam Lawrence, Chief Technical Officer at FSB, said: “I am excited to welcome these four exceptional individuals to the organisation. This programme will allow them to participate in a fast-moving successful business and give them the tools to take their technology skills to the next level.
“The principles of this project have been something that senior management have been immensely passionate about and they very much resonate with our corporate values. We’re looking forward to starting the programme in the autumn.”
Rubik Talent is a UK talent and training organisation, focused on bridging employment skill gaps in underserved communities and providing equal opportunities for all regardless of gender, race, nationality, sexuality, colour or religion.
Robin MacDonald, Managing Partner at Rubik Talent, said: “Working with FSB over the last few months on this project has been hugely rewarding and it’s thrilling to be able to announce the four candidates who will take their place on the scheme.
“In preparation, our trainees have dedicated themselves to three pillars of education at the Rubik Academy: professional skills, iGaming and Full Stack Software Development. These skills will help to fast track their early careers and we are proud to continue to support them in their journeys with FSB.”
