The companies are launching a joint Returnship programme for women to return to careers in the world’s most exciting industries
Entain, the global sports betting, gaming and interactive entertainment group, and the McLaren F1 Team, are launching applications for their joint Returnship programme, to help reignite the careers of women returning to roles in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
While the representation of women in STEM is steadily increasing 1, there remains a significant gender imbalance – in the UK, just 26% of STEM graduates are women, and only 24% of the STEM workforce are women2. There is an urgent need to change the perceptions of careers in STEM, open more opportunities for women to pursue careers in the field, and help both women and men thrive equally in STEM.
As 26% of sports bettors globally are now female3, and F1 continues to experience a rise in female fans, with approximately 40% of fans now female4, it has become even more important for both companies to reflect the customer experience by having a diverse workforce. The Returnship programme is another step in the right direction to making this change.
Jette Nygaard-Andersen, Entain CEO, said: “The fusion of technology, sport and entertainment, and desire to support talented women re-entering the workforce meant that launching this brand-new programme with our partner, McLaren, is an obvious step. We share a passion and commitment for giving women a platform to reignite their careers in STEM and hope that through this programme, we not only support a generation of ambitious women now but inspire future generations of girls to land their dream STEM role.”
As part of the programme, an initial cohort of ten Returnship places will be created, offering unique opportunities and experience at either Entain or the McLaren F1 Team over a six-month period. The programme is designed to suit different women at different stages in their career, with successful candidates being supported by a 1-1 transitional coach specialising in returning to work, flexible working, networking with senior executives, and an opportunity to discuss permanent role opportunities after the six-month programme. Example placement roles span from software engineers and back-end developers to data scientists and design engineers, with the full list available on the programme’s website.
Candidates who meet the following minimum criteria are being sought:
- At least 3 months unemployed, underemployed or reskilling
- At least 2 years prior professional experience
- STEM focused qualifications or experience or a personal and evidencable passion for technology / data / engineering
Entain is committed to embedding Diversity, Equity and Inclusion into all corners of its business, and has launched a number of programmes to support this commitment, under its EnTrain programme, which is designed to increase access to education and training in technology and improve diversity. With EnTrain, Entain has set the objective to positively impact the lives of over 1,000,000 people around the world, either directly or through their families and dependents, by 2030.
The Entain x McLaren F1 Team Returnship programme also complements Entain’s existing Reboot@Ivy initiative, which helps women return to their technology careers at its locations in Hyderabad and Manila.
Zak Brown, CEO, McLaren Racing, commented: “We are excited to be launching the first returnship of its kind within F1 in partnership with Entain. This is an opportunity to drive real change within the Engineering and Technology industries and is part of our overall commitment to making STEM careers more accessible to all, and to having 40% of our employees from under-represented backgrounds by 2030.”
In December 2022, Formula 1 announced teams for its F1 Academy: an all-female racing series for younger drivers, set for 2023. Likewise, Extreme E has elevated women in motorsport with its gender-equal motorsport series. These moves demonstrate the eagerness to propel women drivers into the upper echelons of the sport, and mirror what Entain and the McLaren F1 Team are hoping to achieve through the Returnship programme.
Exploring Online Casinos: A Deep Dive into Finnish, Latin American, and American Platforms
The world of online gambling has undergone a seismic shift in recent years, with players from all corners of the globe flocking to digital platforms for their gaming needs. From Finland to Latin America to the United States, online casinos have become a staple of entertainment, offering an unparalleled array of games and experiences. In this comprehensive exploration, we’ll delve into the unique characteristics, trends, and player preferences that define online casinos in three distinct regions: Finland, Latin America, and the United States. By dissecting the intricacies of each market, we’ll gain a deeper understanding of the global landscape of online gambling.
Finnish Online Casinos
A Beacon of Innovation and Efficiency Nestled in the heart of Scandinavia, Finland boasts a reputation for technological prowess and innovation, and its online gambling industry is no exception. Finnish online casinos, affectionately known as “pikakasinot,” have garnered attention worldwide for their streamlined and efficient approach to gaming. At the forefront of this innovation is the concept of online casinos without registration, a concept that has revolutionized the way players access their favourite games.
At the heart of Finnish online casinos’ success lies the integration of Trustly’s Pay N Play service, a groundbreaking payment solution that eliminates the need for traditional registration processes. With Pay N Play, players can make instant deposits and withdrawals directly from their bank accounts, bypassing the cumbersome registration forms and identity verification procedures typically associated with online casinos.
But it’s not just the convenience of Pay N Play that has propelled Finnish online casinos to the forefront of the industry. These platforms also prioritize player security, holding licenses from reputable regulatory authorities such as the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. Advanced encryption technology ensures that players’ sensitive information remains safe and secure, giving them peace of mind as they enjoy their favourite games.
In terms of game selection, Finnish online casinos offer a diverse array of options to cater to every taste and preference. From classic slots and table games to live dealer experiences and progressive jackpots, there’s something for everyone at these innovative platforms. And with generous bonuses and promotions on offer, players are incentivized to keep coming back for more.
Latin American Online Casinos
Embracing Diversity and Accessibility in Latin America, the online gambling landscape is as diverse as the cultures that inhabit the region. From the bustling streets of Brazil to the scenic vistas of Argentina, players across Latin America have embraced the convenience and accessibility of online casinos in droves. And much like their Finnish counterparts, Latin American online casinos without registration have emerged as a popular choice among players seeking instant access to their favourite games.
Known locally as “casinos sin registro,” these platforms offer a simplified gaming experience that resonates with players across the region. With no registration required, players can dive straight into the action, making deposits and withdrawals with ease using a variety of local payment methods.
One of the key advantages of Latin American online casinos is their commitment to catering to local tastes and preferences. From culturally-inspired slots and traditional table games to live dealer experiences that capture the essence of Latin American hospitality, these platforms offer a diverse array of gaming options that resonate with players on a personal level.
But it’s not just the games themselves that set Latin American online casinos apart; it’s also the way they prioritize player security and trust. By partnering with reputable payment providers and implementing robust security measures, these platforms ensure that players can enjoy their gaming experience with peace of mind.
American Online Casinos
Navigating a Complex Regulatory Landscape in the United States, the online gambling landscape is as complex and varied as the country itself. With regulations varying from state to state, navigating the legal framework can be a daunting task for both players and operators alike. However, despite these challenges, online gambling has continued to gain traction in the US, with several states legalizing and regulating online casino gaming in recent years.
While traditional registration processes are still common in many parts of the country, there are signs of a gradual shift towards online casinos without registration as the industry evolves. Platforms such as Rush Games and DraftKings Casino have begun to gain traction, offering players a streamlined and hassle-free gaming experience.
In terms of game selection, American online casinos offer a wide range of options to cater to every taste and preference. From classic slots and table games to innovative new titles and exclusive partnerships with leading software providers, there’s no shortage of excitement to be found at these platforms.
But perhaps the biggest draw of American online casinos is their commitment to player safety and security. With stringent regulations in place to protect players’ interests and prevent underage gambling, players can rest assured that they’re in good hands when they play at a licensed and regulated online casino in the US.
As we’ve seen, the world of online gambling is a diverse and dynamic landscape, with each region bringing its own unique characteristics and player preferences to the table. From the streamlined efficiency of Finnish online casinos to the cultural richness of Latin American platforms to the complex regulatory landscape of the United States, there’s something for everyone in the world of online casinos.
By exploring the intricacies of each market, we’ve gained valuable insights into the global landscape of online gambling and the factors that drive its continued growth and success. Whether you’re a casual player looking for some entertainment or a seasoned gambler seeking your next big win, online casinos offer an unparalleled gaming experience that’s sure to satisfy even the most discerning of tastes.
Rank Group announced as first live customer of DoTrust Complete
Department of Trust (dotrust.co.uk), the award-winning provider of financial risk assessments for safer gambling, has launched DoTrust Complete – the first dedicated platform offering end-to-end frictionless and enhanced financial risk checks to support all stages of the player journey.
The company also announced Rank Group plc, one of the UK’s largest online and land-based gaming operators, as the first live customer of the new service.
Gambling operators in the UK until now have had to rely on multiple providers to conduct financial risk, affordability, AML and other compliance and safer gambling assessments on their customers. This has led to complexity, cost and a poor player experience as well as significant regulatory penalties for poor execution. The challenge is set to increase following the UK government’s review of the Gambling Act which is likely to require more frequent vulnerability checks on players even at lower levels of spend which will require frictionless and accurate assessments.
With DoTrust Complete, operators can run all necessary checks in a single platform, including frictionless income and vulnerability tests using the best available public and proprietary data, much of which has not been deployed in the gambling industry before. Operators can even design their own risk methodology and gain full auditability of decisions to ensure proportionality and meet regulatory requirements.
Commenting on the new platform launch, Michael Byrne, DoTrust Chief Operating Officer, said: “We are delighted to officially launch Complete ahead of the expected change in regulation this year. Operators now have a reliable, comprehensive and industry-first service they can rely on to meet all current and future requirements. Complete reduces friction for customers and increases certainty and efficiency for operators.”
Liam Smith, Director of Customer Operations for Rank Interactive, commented: “Rank has always been at the forefront of consumer protection and are constantly seeking ways to improve our player experience within a safe environment. DoTrust Complete is the first tool we have found that has been specifically developed for gambling operators. The efficiency and degree of control which Complete gives is impressive and we are excited to leverage these capabilities in building our business.”
