Bodog opens recruitment booth and second London office

TAGs: Bodog Europe, ICE

PiccadillyYou can tell that a company is getting along just fine when they are employing new members of staff despite tough economic times. Bodog have shown this to be the case over recent months, and today have even more news for the industry to stare in amazement at.

Bodog Europe has announced the opening of a new office in London, which will be the second in the centre of the iGaming universe. It will complement the Oxford Circus location that was described by eGaming Review as “THE dream place to work.”

In a bid to attract the industry’s optimum talent, Bodog Europe has a strategic desire to offer employees the best locations to work in. Hence they now have two offices in London and one in Barcelona rather than in some of the more industry standard locations.

It seems to have worked after some of the industry’s leading lights have been attracted to the new offices over the past three months. These include: David O’Callaghan (Fraud) and Kris Marshall (Business Intelligence) from Full Tilt, Dave Edwards (QA) and Stuart Tilly (Legal) from SportingBet, Gary Myers (Affiliates) from Partry Gaming, Jesper Svesson (Casino marketing) and Paul Ngoie (SEO) from Ladbrokes, Kemley Sellars (PPC) and Anthony Lea (Product Manager) from Betfair, as well as Karolina Pelc (CRM) from Paddy Power.

In addition to the new office, the Bodog Nation believes they will be presenting an industry first at the upcoming ICE show. The first operator branded booth purely for recruitment will be at the show so it might be wise to take a CV along with you.

A Bodog spokesperson commented: “It is my firm belief that the battle ground for egaming over the coming years is all about talent. You see many of the big names in the industry making good strategic decisions but they don’t always execute them. I believe this is largely down to the people they have around them – a good driver cannot make a slow car go faster. We believe we are attracting a team that can help us establish the Bodog brand strongly in Europe in the same way it is across the rest of the world but we are actively looking for more talent.”
