"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," he added.

James Arnold, The Pools CEO, commented: "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," he concluded.
