Who are Spotlight Sports Group?

Spotlight Sports Group deliver distinctive sports betting experiences through our own brands and via the world's biggest betting operators and media owners. Built on the foundations of the Racing Post, their mission is to relentlessly add value to global sports betting experiences, with a trusted, market-leading offering.

What specific hiring challenges were Spotlight Sports Group facing?

Spotlight Sports Group’s internal Talent team needed some short-term support with talent acquisition and were keen to find a partner that could quickly adopt their best-in-class recruitment approach and provide a seamless experience both for managers and candidates. Given their position in the online sports betting industry, and broader digital Sports market, they were focussed on being able to find and select candidates for some niche roles, in a traditionally competitive candidate market. Spotlight Sports Group also wanted a partner who could provide support and expertise across the end-to-end hiring process, creating a valuable experience for internal hiring managers and the Talent team, while also providing a best-in-class experience for all candidates.

The Global Sports On Demand solution provides part-time embedded hiring support to the internal Talent team at Spotlight Sports Group through one of our expert Talent Partners.

Employer branding and candidate experience is key for Spotlight Sports Group, so our service design and Talent Partner has a focus on representing the mission, values and culture of Spotlight Sports Group for every candidate.
