We're having a lot of fun in Slovakia but it's hard not to talk about the war in Ukraine, especially since both countries share a border of 100km.
When discussing the situation with Jan Packa of Banco Casino, he explained: ' We have a hard time calling these people 'refugees'. They are our direct neighbours and are already part of Slovak society. It's a very natural thing for us to assist them where we can in this tragedy since there are already so many links and ties between us anyway.'
The Covid-19 crises reshaped many aspects of the gambling and gaming industry and many work forces are needed now that everything is opening again.
Banco Casino is in the process of hiring new staff for live game dealer positions in their casinos of Bratislava and Kosice. These positions are not specifically for Ukrainians of course but, in an attempt to help tackle the disastrous consequences of this war, Banco Casino offer to support potential workers coming from the Ukraine. Depending on the situation, they are willing to help with schooling (language & dealing techniques) and to assist with the search of suitable accommodation if needed.
In case of interest, you are welcome to contact Jan Packa in Bratislava for details.
