That is precisely what we need in Rebel Status; industry-savvy recruiters who perform and lead at the very highest level combined with a genuine passion for what we do…”
Is now a good time for a venture like Rebel Status?
“Innovation and re-invention are the very essences of the iGaming industry. Time and again whether it is the opening up of new markets due to regulatory changes or even the recent Covid-19 situation; the industry improvises and adapts positively. We witnessed this recently as companies responded to the loss of live sporting events such as F1 and Premier League Football. Literally overnight new virtual events and E-sports markets were created. That adaptability is genuinely remarkable to witness and one of the things that make the entire sector so inspirational.
As for Rebel Status; the gaming industry truly has sex appeal; it’s one of the hottest and most fun places to be right now and demand for the highest quality talent will only increase. As competition for that talent gets fiercer the need for clients to identify recruiters who can challenge the norms and deliver above and beyond expectations will increase exponentially. Rebel Status is designed and focused on being the perfect conduit between the best talent and the most attractive companies.”
