Gibraltar’s Gambling Division has begun the search for a new director of licensing and regulation to initially work under gambling commissioner Phill Brear.
Gibraltar’s Ministry of Financial Services and Gaming has invited applications from “suitably qualified candidates” to take over the running of the Gambling Division under a three-year contract.
Responsible for gambling licensing and regulatory responsibilities in Gibraltar, the candidate will report to the Gambling Commissioner and the Minister with responsibility for gambling.
Speaking to Gaming Intelligence, Brear said that he would eventually hand over his responsibilities to the new director, although he will maintain a strategic advisory role within the division.
Brear also confirmed that the government’s current Review of the Gambling Act will see one or more advisory commissioners acting as a supporting board for the division.
Brear has been with the division for 9 years, having joined as head of gambling regulation in October 2007, with his contract running until next Autumn.
The division hopes to have its new director of licensing and regulation in place at the beginning of next year.
