The Mediterranean island nation has much to offer, including a thriving iGaming sector, a beautiful climate, and rich history and culture. It is quickly becoming one of the most popular destinations in the world for those looking to work in the industry. In this blog post, we will discuss 5 of the top benefits of working in the iGaming industry on Malta.
The iGaming industry has been steadily growing over the past few years, with Malta at the forefront. In fact, it's estimated that there are more than 4000 jobs in this sector alone. The country is home to some of the biggest names in online gaming and sports betting, including Bet365 and Tipico.
Furthermore, the vibrant industry and jobs in this sector are expected to increase significantly over the next five years giving rise to ample careers opportunities. While plenty of competition is present in the industry, a lot of opportunities are there for those who simply want to work a year or two abroad on the beautiful island.
Malta is home to a large and vibrant expat community, making it easy to meet new people and make friends. There are plenty of social events and activities to get involved in, as well as a wide range of restaurants and bars to explore. Almost all of the companies are international to their core and it is not uncommon that companies host summer parties and events that celebrate the diverse set of people working there.
What's particularly appealing about Malta, especially in the iGaming sector, is the number of various folks from all over the world you get to meet. Malta is a small island, but it has the highest population density in Europe and attracts people from everywhere.
While Malta's official language is Maltese, English is widely spoken by all locals on the island. This makes it easy for expats to live there without having to learn a new language or adjust too much to fit in. Nearly all of the iGaming companies have international teams, with English being their main language for communication internally as well as externally.
Of course, there is a high level of demand of other languages in these companies as well. That is after all one of the big reasons so many expats can be found on the Island. In some companies, you can even earn a juicy language bonus on you pay check if the languages you speak are in sufficiently high demand.
One cannot make this sort of list without mentioning the fantastic weather that is usually present on the Island. Malta enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers and short, cool winters. Temperatures typically range from 20 to 30 degrees celsius during summer months (June – September). In addition to the beautiful weather, there are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities such as snorkeling or scuba diving in the bays.
Of course, you might already have a lot of experience working internationally but for those who don't this will be a big boost to their CVs. Working abroad is not only good for your professional development but also a great way to experience other cultures and languages. Employers consistently report that they put a high value on candidates having international experience, whether it comes from working or studying abroad.
It is important to note that Malta, like any other place has its downsides and it can take a little bit of time to adjust when moving over. Some people also report that the Island feels very small after spending a while there. That said, we believe there are more than enough advantages for most people in making this their next destination
