Betsson Group has announced a new Open Application portal for anyone who has been affected by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and is looking for new job opportunities in Budapest, Tallin, Malta, or Athens.
Under the scheme, the leading operator offers relocation for applicants and their families, a relocation allowance, accommodation, life insurance and health insurance, a fast-track application process, and more.
The invasion has sparked the largest European refugee crisis since World War II, as over three million people have fled the country, according to the United Nations (UN). Additionally, around 6.5 million people are said to have been displaced within the country.
This has led to disruptions for iGaming operators in the country, including prominent software supplier Playson, which warned clients to expect disruptions to everyday processes.
The iGaming industry in general has been very vocal about the crisis in Ukraine, with a number of prominent professionals launching fundraising drives and other support schemes to help the country.
Additionally, a number of companies, including LeoVegas, have suspended operations in Belarus and Russia, citing the conflict.
Many professionals have fled Ukraine, in many cases finding themselves with only what they can carry. Betsson’s initiative to launch the applications page will hopefully allow some of these individuals to get back onto their feet.
“Betsson Group operates in a fast-paced industry – which means we are growing successfully and cannot be where we are without our people,” the company stated on its website.
“Whether your background is in Commercial, Strategy, Tech or Product – we want to hear from you. We have a number of openings in Malta and we are hiring talent for our Frontend, Backend and Fullstack teams located in Budapest and Tallinn.”
