The Newcastle-based iGaming business signs Newcastle United stars to help promote its open roles

LeoVegas Group, the global iGaming operator and subsidiary of the global entertainment company MGM Resorts International, has partnered with Newcastle United FC to produce an employer branding film to drive the business’s team expansion, featuring popular Toon stars Dan Burn, Sean Longstaff and Paul Dummett.

Through its already established association with Newcastle United FC, LeoVegas Group taps into the team’s talent and popularity to help reach and maximise engagement with those living in the North East of England to showcase the scope of jobs available at the company.

Looking to bring 50 new roles into the region, Burn, Longstaff and Dummett celebrate the many benefits of working at LeoVegas Group, including its four weeks ‘work from anywhere’ programme, health insurance, hybrid working, roaring discounts, training and development, and wellbeing support. The growing company, having recently launched the latest brand on its roster in the UK market, BetMGM, is recruiting individuals that want to work at a leading and expanding iGaming business.

Filmed at the club’s Darsley Park training ground the video shows the players dressed in their training kit, speaking to the camera about the benefits of working at LeoVegas Group. Scattered throughout the one-minute video are visuals of iconic landmarks and places Newcastle has to offer, including the Angel of the North.

To date, the business employs over 120 people in Newcastle and over 1,400 people across Europe, all enriching the company through their different backgrounds, skills and experiences. The 50 new roles in the North East will be the biggest recruitment effort for LeoVegas Group in the UK since establishing itself in Newcastle in 2018.

Sam Behar, Director of UK & Ireland at LeoVegas Group, said: We’re proud to be based in the incredible city of Newcastle, the home of Newcastle United FC, and are excited to discover more winning talent as we look to expand our team in the region. The Magpies share our same passion for Newcastle and we’re grateful for their support to help us attract the best talent! If you’re looking for your next opportunity, we’d love to hear from you.”
