INTERVIEW OF THE MONTH
LEEDS CITY MAGAZINE TALK TO NAPOLEON’S VERY OWN SCOTT ANDERTON, A VETERAN OF THE CASINO INDUSTRY
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, how long you have worked for Napoleons Casino Leeds and what led you to work here?
I have worked in the casino industry for over 25 years, I started as a dealer and have worked for many companies in several cities including Mayfair in London, and I have worked in Leeds for 3 years after moving from Hull and then Sheffield where I worked as a duty manager.
What’s the best thing about working for a company like Napoleons?
Having worked for Napoleons for over 15 years in several different roles I feel valued as an employee and not just a number. I have always been made to feel part of the Napoleons family, and we try to pass that ethos on to our customers, making Napoleons a safe and friendly place to visit where customers are always made to feel welcome and valued.
What advice would you give to anybody wanting to get into this industry?
The casino industry is unique in the fact that everybody starts at the bottom and has the opportunity to progress and have a successful career; especially here at Napoleons where we pride ourselves in promoting from within the company. Also the industry gives young people the chance to work and travel. I have lots of friends working on cruise ships, giving them the chance to see the world and get paid for it.
What do you do out of work to unwind and relax? Hobbies/activities etc.
I have two daughters and another due in March so I’m a bit of a home body, boring but my girls are my world.
