For the past couple of months there have been numerous stories surfacing on the internet and on forums around the world regarding the possibility of a takeover of the stricken former online poker giant Full Tilt Poker. Groupe Bernard Tapie, a French investment firm, are supposedly in the latter stages of a takeover but nothing concrete has happened on that front.
However, the eagle-eyed folks over at our close friends PokerNews noticed that the company behind Full Tilt Poker are in the process of a recruitment drive, with the focus being on customer service positions. If you head over to jobs.ie you will discover a number of vacancies the company is trying to fill, leading the poker community to become excited at the prospect of a relaunch of Full Tilt Poker in the not too distant future.
When the full financial problems of Full Tilt Poker came to light it was members of the customer services team that were made redundant first in an attempt to save some cash and stave off the possibility of going into administration. Now they are looking to hire people to fill these positions speaks volumes in itself.
Listings for Italian, German, Romanian, Hungarian, Dutch, Portuguese, German and Spanish speaking customer service representatives were posted on jobs.ie and many included the following text:
Pocket Kings is hiring and has an urgent requirement for experienced multilingual Customer Service representatives. With an attractive salary, these 2-3 month contract roles may become permanent and offer an exciting opportunity to join a vibrant and energetic company.
When you add this information to the fact we have heard the Groupe Bernard Tapie are apparently attempting to obtain a gaming licence it gives us the best indication yet that a deal for Full Tilt Poker could be completed sooner rather than later. Here's hoping that is true because PokerNetwork is aware that many of our readers have money trapped on the site.
