iGaming Academy is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with Rubik Talent Ltd that will seek to address the iGaming industry’s ongoing tech talent shortage.
The new scheme will support iGaming employers to recruit graduates for a wide range of specialist IT roles including software development and data engineering. Rubik will source and hire graduates on employers’ behalf, whilst iGaming Academy will provide access to industry training.
Bridging The iGaming Skills Gap
This ‘first of its kind’ offering will bridge the skills gap by sourcing graduates and providing combined industry-and technology-focused training. Employers can expect to receive high quality new recruits with the potential to fill critical roles.
Talent shortages have provided significant challenges for the rapidly-expanding iGaming industry. Rising demand for limited skills resources has, in some cases, led to unsustainable cycles of talent sourcing and bidding wars. To meet the long-term demand for talent, graduate hiring schemes and effective training will be critical for the industry.
According to Pentasia recruitment’s Head of Tech, Robert Gray, “a global shortage of tech talent, unfilled technical vacancies continue to cause pain across the online gambling industry.”
Diversity and inclusivity will be central to the new scheme’s approach. Rubik and iGaming Academy are committed to developing career opportunities for underrepresented groups and improving diversity and inclusion across iGaming.
