Arnold Ash has partnered with The Football Pools to provide integrated talent solutions for the relaunch of one of Britain’s most iconic brands


Under the stewardship of new CEO James Arnold, The Football Pools now exists as the most famous and recognised element of a newly expanded brand and product portfolio via its new website, ‘The Pools,’ as the new umbrella brand will be known, is building on its deep history; creating a new legacy for innovation and customer-centricity, focusing on an accessible to all, small stake, big win strategy, targeting the modern-day gaming player.

Arnold Ash is an executive recruitment and talent advisory business, led by CEO Jon Arnold, which provides integrated talent solutions to many of the leading operations and suppliers within the betting and gaming industry.

Arnold Ash has successfully completed several senior searches at The Pools reinforcing the leadership team, and will continue to provide executive recruitment services as the company transforms and grows.

Jon Arnold, CEO of Arnold Ash, said: “I’ve known James Arnold for a long time and contrary to popular industry belief, he isn’t my brother or cousin! We worked closely together during his successful tenure as COO at LiveScore Group and Arnold Ash couldn’t be happier to now also be working as the executive recruitment partner for The Pools.
“The Football Pools means so much to so many people in this country. It is a truly iconic and nostalgic British brand and one that we are proud to work with as we help to support James and his management team’s vision and strategy. We have already placed some excellent professionals with them, as we continue to provide leading operators and suppliers with the very best integrated talent solutions.”
James Arnold, CEO of The Pools, said: “This is a hugely exciting time for The Pools as we get ready to launch our new app and go live with a new CRM system which will showcase our player-centric approach and how we are using technology to engage today’s modern gaming player.
“People and talent are crucial to the success of any company, and I have always been incredibly impressed with the way Arnold Ash rapidly integrate into a business to become a trusted, strategic partner. They provided me with some outstanding talent during my time at LiveScore and they have already done the same for The Pools. Due to both their partnership approach, and the outstanding level of the talent they source, we are delighted to work with them as a key strategic partner to deliver our executive talent.”
