Gamesys Group announced its plan to open an office on the Isle of Man. This new operational hub will service the Group’s B2B business, which is focused mainly on Asia and is expanding rapidly. The Group announced 31% year-on-year revenue growth in its recent Q3 results. There are ambitious plans to maintain this level of growth in key markets; creating an operational hub on the Island forms an integral part of its strategy to build successful foundations.
“Our decision to open an office on the Isle of Man is an important milestone in our growth story,” says Lee Fenton, CEO at Gamesys Group. “The Isle of Man is a world-class location for gaming operations, as it offers a long-established and stable regulatory environment, as well as an infrastructure that supports the online gaming industry. We are excited to build a team of local talent and have them join us in our purpose to craft entertainment with care.”
Gamesys Group came to be a year ago, with the merger of JPJ Group plc and Gamesys. The Gamesys Group is a FTSE 250 leading operator of online casino and bingo-led brands, with over 1,500 employees around the world. This year it achieved external recognition of its sustainability credentials with membership into the FTSE4Good Index Series, as a result of its commitment to support causes relating to mental health, through the independent charity organisation The Gamesys Foundation. The Group is excited to put down roots on the Isle of Man and believes this new location has a lot to offer – most notably, a local talent pool and access to attractive business benefits.
“We believe the Isle of Man has the potential to be an ideal location for our business, as well as for employees who want to enjoy the quality of life that the Island can offer,” comments Janine Woodford-Dale, Marketing Director at Gamesys Group. “We look forward to building a team that embodies our DNA and where people feel inspired by our values. We place great importance on nurturing a diverse culture which knows how to ‘Be One Team’ and to ‘Shoot for the Moon’, whilst always remembering to focus on our customer and to ‘Be the Player’.”
Laurence Skelly MHK, Minister for Enterprise, commented: “This is great news for both Gamesys and the Island, with some incredible opportunities for our skilled workforce; it is truly a testament to our Island’s safe and stable regulatory environment and world-renowned reputation as a hub for the eGaming industry. We welcome Gamesys to the Island and it is heartening to see major companies who are keen to embrace the Isle of Man’s working culture – keeping a balance between work and home at the forefront of their values. I look forward to seeing the company join our thriving ecosystem of digital businesses and I wish them continued success at their new Island home.”
Initially the Group will be advertising 20 roles locally on the Island for a variety of teams ranging from privacy and responsible gaming, through to marketing and customer service. For details on how to apply, applicants should visit https://careers.gamesysgroup.com/
