Betsson wants to be Malta’s employment favourite

Roderick Spiteri Schillig is the company's new head of employer branding and external relations


Betsson has targeted the strengthening of its position in the competitive Maltese employment market after appointing local specialist Roderick Spiteri Schillig as its new head of employer branding and external relations.

The Ta' Xbiex-headquartered betting operator already employs nearly 1,000 people in the jurisdiction, making it Malta's largest employer in the sector. Spiteri Schillig will shape and implement its employer value proposition and handle the overall employer branding strategy.

The former LeoVegas head of communications will also lead Betsson’s corporate communications team, taking care of relations with trade media and local media in Malta.

Jesper Svensson, CEO of Betsson’s operations, highlighted the importance of the appointment in the company's bid to “continue improving our position as the employer of choice on the island”.

He added: “Roderick’s local knowledge and understanding of the iGaming industry will help us convey our message and share the Betsson experience.”

Betsson employs 900 workers of 46 nationalities at its two offices in Malta, in St Julian’s and Ta' Xbiex. Central functions based there include HR, legal and finance, customer service, digital marketing and technology.

Spiteri Schillig said: “Being the largest gaming organisation in Malta with more than 900 employees gives us the opportunity to bring about positive change within the communities we work in.”
