Boston Links Report Explores I-Gaming Salary Scene

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Mar 2, 2018

Report focuses on Isle of Man and Malta as principal i-gaming hubs

The international recruitment firm Boston Link claims its latest set of free reports gives insight into the salaries of the iGaming industry in hubs like the Isle of Man and Malta.

Historically the iGaming industry has led the way in how companies should reward their staff, with innovative cultures and highly attractive salaries, the company observes. As a result many forward-thinking companies are following suit in order to increase staff retention. The reports highlight the extra initiatives that they are taking in order to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to employee welfare.

Some of the key trends highlighted by the report include:

* Competition for staff in Malta has undoubtedly caused wage inflation across the board and in some areas, quite significantly;

* Companies based in the Isle of Man are seeing particularly high demand for Data Analyst and Business Intelligence roles;

* Maltese companies are now using technologies for which it is difficult to find talent, therefore requiring the relocation of specialists with experience of specific coding languages;

* A strong push for diversity and inclusion across the industry has become increasingly important following negative press exposure;

Julian Perigo, managing director of Boston Link said: “The annual salary data that we produce is critically important for both employees and employers alike. The employers in iGaming are increasingly concerned about rewarding their staff in line with their competitors. Attracting and retaining talent is a huge focus of the market and as iGaming specialists we wanted to bridge the gap of information that, naturally, can be hard for businesses to obtain.”

Cosmo Currey, head of talent acquisition for the Isle of Man, added: “The Isle of Man and Malta are two of the most respected iGaming hubs in Europe. They are similar in that they are both experiencing significant talent shortages due to the growth of established operators. As small markets it can be hard to get reliable and localised comparative data which is why we’ve focused on these jurisdictions for our reports.”

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
