iGaming Academy and iFinance Academy are pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with Rubik Talent Ltd that will seek to address ongoing tech talent shortages across iGaming and Fintech.
The new scheme will support tech employers to recruit graduates for a wide range of specialist IT roles including software development and data engineering. Rubik will source and hire graduates on employers’ behalf, whilst our training Academies will provide access to industry training.
Diversity and inclusivity will be central to the new scheme’s approach. Rubik, iGaming and iFinance Academy are committed to developing career opportunities for underrepresented groups and improving diversity and inclusion across the iGaming, Fintech and Payments industries.
Bridging The Skills Gap
This ‘first of its kind’ offering will bridge the skills gap by sourcing graduates and providing combined industry- and technology-focused training. Employers can expect to receive high quality new recruits with the potential to fill critical roles.
Talent shortages have provided significant challenges for both industries. Rising demand for limited skills resources has, in some cases, led to unsustainable cycles of talent sourcing and bidding wars. To meet the long-term demand for talent, graduate hiring schemes and effective training will be critical.
According to Robert Gray, Head of Tech for Pentasia and Headcount, “a global shortage of tech talent, unfilled technical vacancies continue to cause pain across the online gambling and fintech industries.”
As demand for specialist skills and expertise looks set to increase further still, this new service will likely become indispensable for iGaming and Fintech employers.
Industry and Technical Training For Graduate Recruits
Graduate trainees sourced by Rubik will receive a full training programme provided by either iGaming Academy or iFinance Academy including access to a suite of interactive compliance and job skills courses.
Training available for iGaming recruits – provided by iGaming Academy - will cover topics including the industry’s history, the various types of product, how games of chance and skills work, AML, fraud prevention, responsible gaming, KYC and more.
For Fintech recruits, iFinance Academy will provide an introduction to the payments ecosystem, how our banking system is set up, issuing and acquiring technologies, open banking, commercial structures and more. Training will also focus on the future of payments including cryptocurrencies.
