Casino operator MGM China Holdings Ltd is planning to roll out a series of mass recruitment fairs for its upcoming MGM Cotai development, scheduled to open in 17Q2.
The fairs will be organized in collaboration with Macau Federation of Trade Unions (FAOM), Federation of the Macau Residents Association (UGAMM), Macau Gaming Industry Laborers Association (MGILA) and the Macau Women’s General Association (AGMM) said MGM in a press release.
There will be around 1,200 new positions with approximately 6,000 job openings for both gaming and non-gaming departments.
The first mass recruitment fair took place at MGM Macau’s Grand Ballroom on Tuesday, with over 800 local candidates and more than 200 employment offers on-site.
Wendy Yu, senior vice president of human resources of MGM said of the Campaign, “MGM is committed to giving back to the community through different initiatives; one of which is by providing opportunities for local talent to develop professional skills and fuel their career path at a resort of international level. We will continue to provide extensive training and support to both our existing and new team members as we anticipate the expansion of MGM’s footprint in Macau. We believe that great people create great moments, and we are confident that the Golden Lion Team will significantly contribute to Macau’s position as a world leisure and tourism center.”
Of the collaboration with MGM, Elaine Wong, vice president of FAOM said, “We are happy to see that enterprises are putting emphasis in recruiting locals. We look forward to more collaborations as we help to reduce local unemployment rate. We hope to see more local enterprises, not only the integrated resort operators, to create job opportunities, upward and linear career mobility for local residents. For those who are looking for a change in their career, attending recruitment fairs of this sort is a great way to find a desirable job.”
The mass recruitment fairs are part of our effort in offering a wide spectrum of horizontal and vertical career mobility options for local talent. In addition to creating new positions for our MGM COTAI, our team members of MGM MACAU have been constantly receiving training and internal transferal opportunities so that they can discover new areas of professional interest and career choices. Committed to our sustainability vision, “Create a Better Tomorrow Today” and to fulfill our corporate social responsibility, MGM will continue to support the development of local talent by providing diverse career options and training programs.
