The industry grew quickly, bolstered by disruptive technologies in AI and payments, the growth in demand from emerging markets and regulatory reform, most notably the impact of the repeal of PASPA in the US.Here are what we see as some of the main trends influencing career opportunities: North America is growing (fast) Since the 2018 repeal of the infamous Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), which effectively banned sports betting in the US, the doors have opened for American states to legalise sportbooks and 10 states have done just that. As a result, many operators have ramped up operations in the US, creating plenty of new roles for those with the right skills. It’s expected that by 2023, North America will be the largest sports betting market in the world. All change in Europe It’s not just the US that’s experiencing regulatory change. The Netherlands, Spain, Scandinavia and Portugal all saw significant legislation pass in 2019, so it’s imperative that operators stay ahead of the game. While many regulations involved tightening restrictions to protect consumers from fraud and problem gambling, there was liberalisation too, for example, Czech Republic lifted the restrictions on foreign operators. Europe is a hugely dynamic market right now, resulting in career opportunities for those with the right knowledge. Leadership continues to expand At the leadership level, salaries are increasing (in the US, C-suite roles are commanding packages of up to $500k) and there are big roles for the taking, with the highest demand in new products and emerging markets. The landscape is so competitive that businesses are willing to pay above the odds to secure the right talent to take their business forward, meaning that talented candidates can secure career advancement, with international relocation also on offer at some firms. Due to the above developments, there is huge potential across a number of business areas. Design and tech Those in technical roles are in high demand. As demand for candidates with niche technical skills far exceeds supply, qualified professionals can command high salaries and benefits. It’s not uncommon for highly experienced software candidates to secure £200k-plus salaries, even below the C-suite level. There are also plenty of options for remote work as igaming companies attempt to access talent in other locations and make jobs more attractive. Since half of all candidates in design and tech are open to working remotely, this can only be good news.Product and project Product roles are pivotal in the online gambling sector, allowing fast-moving operators to turn plans into reality and deliver rapidly in new markets. Therefore, there are plenty of opportunities in this area and we’ve seen significant salary increases (up to 35%) being offered to job-movers with the right vision and skills. If you’ve got a track record in launching innovative new products in igaming, you’ll be attractive to ambitious companies in the sector.Sales and account management It’s a great time to be a sales or account manager in the igaming space, with salaries up 5-10% year-on-year and many companies offering lucrative bonus and commission packages for top performers. While UK opportunities tend to be the best paid, there’s also significant demand in emerging markets such as LatAm and Africa. In the US, while the industry is dynamic and fast-growing, opportunities may be harder to access for non-US citizens. Marketing Marketing in the igaming sector requires specialised skills and knowledge, which is why sector experience is always a bonus. Marketing teams are under pressure to devise new and innovative bonuses to attract and retain customers, while also remaining compliant. We’ve also seen some evidence of gambling companies looking to combine roles recently, for example, recruiting one person to fulfil both CRM and content creation responsibilities, so a diverse skillset may stand you in good stead.Operations and finance The backbone of any company, finance and operations play a crucial role in keeping businesses running at the pace required to stay competitive. Therefore, many companies are unwilling to compromise on talent, often looking for people with the right commercial acumen and project management skills to drive growth. If you’ve got experience in operations, HR and payments within the online gambling sector, you’ll likely find significant opportunities across the industry.Will Sawney is head of marketing at Pentasia Topics: Casino & games People Sports betting Regions: Africa Europe LATAM US Casino & games Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Careers: big opportunities in the igaming industry in 2020

In the first Test in Dunedin, he tormented Fergie McCormick so much with his tactical kicking that the full-back never played for his country again, and an early drop-goal, two conversions and another try – finishing off an instinctive break from Edwards – paved the way for the 13-3 third-Test win in Wellington that ensured the Lions couldn’t lose the series.John made just as big a splash in the provincial fixtures, once taunting Hawkes Bay opponents with sleight of hand and even sitting on the ball in protest at their foul play.Only John Dawes played more games than him on that tour and he finished it with 194 points in 17 matches – a Lions record. Two compatriots from that team sum up John’s rare gifts. Gerald Davies suggested “the game would bend to his will and no one else’s”, while Edwards marvelled at his “cool superiority that spread to others”. Major teams: Llanelli, CardiffCountry: Wales Test span: 1966-72Wales caps: 25 (25 starts)Lions caps: 5 (5 starts)Test points: 120 (6T, 9C, 18P, 10DG)It was the New Zealand press that coined Barry John’s nickname – ‘The King’ – and the All Blacks were certainly subject to some of the fly-half’s seminal displays over a fleeting but celebrated career.Alongside half-back partner Gareth Edwards, he would become the scourge of the Kiwis, starting in 1967 when the duo combined to great effect for East Wales in a 3-3 draw – the closest New Zealand would come to losing all trip.John’s gliding running style earned him Barbarians selection before four starts in the 1968 Five Nations and a place on the Lions tour to South Africa, where he broke his collarbone 15 minutes into the first Test.Injuries were a constant concern for John due to his slight frame, though two tries – one in a 30-9 thrashing of England – book-ended the 1969 Five Nations. Two years later he rubber-stamped a Welsh Grand Slam by ghosting through France’s blindside defence for a 9-5 victory.That foreshadowed John’s coup de grace, a starring role in the Lions’ 2-1 series success against the All Blacks. TAGS: The Greatest Players Following 35 points in comprehensive triumphs over England, Scotland and France to begin 1972, John walked away, consumed by the claustrophobia of public adoration. A head cashier curtsied to him at a bank and John retired to escape the ‘goldfish bowl’.Though only 27, his 30 Tests had forged a prodigious legacy.

Surrounded by a centuries-old chestnut grove and a breathtaking view of the town of Caprarola, an old agricultural warehouse finds new life in the will of a young couple. With the arrival of the second child, the two want new spaces: from those for the family that expands to those more intimate for the couple.The starting point is a structure designed for agriculture. A rough volume articulated on two levels … warehouse in the basement and laboratory on the upper floor. The two levels are joined by a large external staircase open on two sides. An artifact that is anything but organic, looking for a meeting point with the context.Save this picture!© Simone BossiSave this picture!Axonometric diagramSave this picture!© Simone BossiTo amalgamate landscape and architecture, the property changes rewrites itself. Openings, closings, new volumes. Outside, the design approach becomes compositional. A metal structure wraps the house like a grid. Horizontal and vertical elements frame the views, define spaces, perform the functions of shading during the day and those of lighting in the evening. The need? A device is as functional as it is aesthetic, which, in the unifying search for the essential, rewrites prospects and relationships between solids and voids.Save this picture!© Simone BossiThe method continues within, compositional and always by subtraction. Wide, minimal spaces that open to the landscape. The living area follows the solar arc overlooking the Borgo with large windows. The sleeping area instead, facing the countryside, investigates the intimate relationship between man and nature, with a succession of smaller openings that like canvases capture and tell different details of the park surrounding the house.Save this picture!© Simone BossiSave this picture!© Simone BossiThe horizontal surfaces, devoid of geometry, infuse in the rooms a natural continuity interrupted only by the large wooden block that hides and separates the functions. On the interior scenic backdrops, the light enhances the sculptural materiality of the furniture, simple and bright, a synthesis of a rediscovered harmony between architecture and context.

The society secures approximately 94% of its income through fundraising. Fundraising costs for 2012 declined from €4 million to €3.7 million. The society says the reductions were achieved through cost savings and changes to some campaigns. The society posted a surplus of €1.5 million in 2012 but net assets declined due to a large payment for the society pension liability. 7 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Irish Cancer Society has reported a like for like increase in fundraising activity of 11% between 2011 and 2012, according to the society’s latest annual accounts.

The Great North Snowdogs fundraising campaign for St Oswald’s Hospice also took up the theme in an amusing manner: In another example, the Stop Funding Hate campaign attempted to ‘brandjack’ the advert as part of its campaign to urge advertisers to stop paying to advertise in newspapers that promoted “divisive hate campaigns” against immigrants and other minorities.

Joe.ie created a version that used the ad to tell the story of the results of the 2016 US Presidential election: Vaults, the band that played the music for the version of Randy Crawford’s Someday I’ll Fly Away used in the advert, have added their support to the StopFundingHate campaign. They have even promised to donate any funds that they receive from the John Lewis advert, together with money that is raised at an upcoming gig, to the ‘Help Refugees’ charity. 179 total views, 1 views today Tagged with: Advertising christmas corporate TV Has your charity mimicked the John Lewis Christmas advert this year?
