Star Recruitment, which will be led by chief executive Simon Banks, will aim to provide staffing solutions for the global gambling industry.

The roles that will be available via Star Recruitment will include a variety of functions, including marketing, product development, sales and trading.

From on-course and retail operations, Star Sports has grown to include telephone credit and debit betting, online sports betting, spread betting and bookmakers’ services, including affiliate programmes.

“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,” Star Sports’ founder, Ben Keith, said.

“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.”

Banks added: “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.”
