Job Description

Great Britain’s gambling industry is in a constant state of change, fuelled by shifting consumer behaviour and the rapid growth of technology. It’s high profile politically too, and the legislation controlling gambling is constantly under scrutiny. Within this uniquely challenging and evolving environment, The Gambling Commission’s role is to ensure that gambling is crime free, fair and open - and that children and vulnerable people are protected. Now they need you to play a key role in their future, driving the change needed to ensure that the Gambling Commission can meet the growing complexity of the market and their developing regulatory remit. 

Currently, diversity in business tech and an innovative approach to gaming products are playing a major part in the growth of the gambling market. As such, the Commission are looking for a Senior Industry Insight Specialist to join their team and strengthen their understanding of products within the industry. 

This is a brilliant opportunity to develop your career with an organisation that touches almost every part of society in their work to protect the interests of as many people as possible. 

Once you join the team, you’ll discover an inclusive culture where a healthy work-life balance is encouraged, and support is given to help you achieve your professional ambitions. 

As the Senior Industry Insight Specialist, you’ll act as a subject matter expert on the gambling industry and its gaming products.  

Taking full ownership of your specialism, you’ll keep up-to-date with the newest developments, communicate key information to stakeholders and play a major part in enhancing industry awareness within the organisation. 

You’ll research markets and products, the operator landscape, sector trends and applicable legal
framework and regulations.

To be considered, you will need: 

- Significant expertise in the gambling industry or a similar transferable industry 
- Experience at a senior level 
- Advanced analytical skills 
- The ability to obtain information from a wide variety of sources 
- The ability to develop an effective external network of stakeholders, such as other regulatory agencies 

As the Senior Industry Insight Specialist, you’ll have strong interpersonal and relationship-building skills and a collaborative approach. You’ll also have excellent attention to detail, great communication skills and the ability to work on your own initiative.  

If you’re passionate about making your mark on the gambling industry and on society, the Gambling Commission wants to hear from you. 

The closing date for applications is the 8th August 2018.
