Ivan Filletti

There are around 800 open vacancies in Malta’s iGaming sector in a rolling three-month period, according to GamingMalta CEO Ivan Filletti, who described the figure as “no joke”.

Speaking, at Malta’s first national Techxpo, Mr Filletti underlined the challenge of sourcing the right human resources in a world where technology is progressing rapidly and new tools like artificial intelligence (AI) are quickly making their mark, admitting that ‘talent’ is “the big word that keeps me awake at night”.

The comments come in a context where finding the right person for the job is increasingly being noted as a major challenge for businesses across practically all economic sectors, iGaming included.

While many companies have thus far been able to attract plenty of talent from overseas, rising rents and a general increase in the cost of living are having an effect on Malta’s attractiveness.

Highlighting the importance of iGaming to the Maltese economy, Mr Filletti pointed out that it employs some 14,000 people and generates round 10 to 12 per cent of the country’s GDP.
