maltatoday, SUNDAY, 27 MARCH 2016 XII Gaming in Malta UX Specialist HR Business Partner Data Scientist FrontEnd Architect Software QA Engineer Data Architect Last year, the Malta-based German company Tipico launched a new employment opportunities website called through its subsidiary Tipico Careers. First had a chat with Tipico Careers brand manager Thomas Mahoney about the website's development and how it is aimed at today's dynamic jobseeker. With its headquarters at the Portomaso Business Tower in St Julian's, Tipico offers a wide range of pre-live and live sports betting products delivered through cutting-edge mobile and online channels as well as through a top-class portfolio of approximately 1,000 retail outlets, predominantly in Germany. One of the key drivers behind Tipico's growth is that it is an organisation that attracts young people with great tech skills, business understanding and an international outlook. This is why Malta was chosen as the hub for European operations because it offers a business-friendly environment with access to well- educated staff – both local and international. "Like the company, the Tipico Careers website is young, fun, innovative, intelligent and engaging. It reflects our work, which is all about acquiring top talent and investing in our workforce," says Thomas Mahoney, who is in charge of the Careers brand. The Tipico Careers site introduces newcomers to the company with a very innovative motion graphic animation called: 'What's in it for you at Tipico' showing the company's history, its position within the German market, its premium partner and the benefits one would enjoy when joining the organisation. Another video available on www. shows Tipico's high-end offices based in the iconic Portomaso business tower, with an amazing view of the Mediterranean. Whenever possible, the company employs local talent, but some jobs are snapped up by people who make Malta their new home. And it is for these that the website also features an introductory video to Malta's gems, gorgeous locations, the island's culture, THE SECOND YEAR OF TIPICO CAREERS beaches and nightlife in the 'Why Malta?' section. "These days it's all about attracting people and engaging them with initiatives through a multitude of instant and effective social media tools available on people-preferred, often hand-held devices. These include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, Sykpe, Google+, Skype, Whatsapp, Xing and many others platforms," Mahoney says. "At Tipico we very much believe that such tools are the way forward in terms of communication and we feel that they will take over the previous and current generation of online communication tools as we know them today. We enjoy using social media platforms to keep people updated with what the brand has to offer by engaging users via pictures, videos and related approaches." Hot Jobs
