The Stars Group confirm IOM job losses at PokerStars

Thu, 19 Sep 2019

The Stars Group has confirmed job losses at the Isle of Man PokerStars office in Onchan.

In an official statement, the parent group said: 'As we’ve previously noted, our International segment (PokerStars) has faced many headwinds over the last year, including disruptions in some of our key markets. As a result, we are pursuing operational initiatives, including cost-optimisation opportunities, as we’ve done in the past, to reassess our fixed cost base and realign our costs with our global growth strategy.

'We believe the proposed reductions in headcount on the Isle of Man are a component of our overall plans to position us to deliver our mid-term growth targets and long-term sustainable growth. Apart from the personal impact on affected individuals today's news will have little foreseeable impact on our overall operations in the Isle of Man, which has always been a critical operational hub for the Company and will remain so.'

It's not known how many employees will be leaving PokerStars.
