MGM begins MGM Cotai recruitment program

Written by Ben Blaschke

MGM has held the first of a series of Mass Recruitment Fairs as it looks to fill 1,200 of the roughly 6,000 gaming and non-gaming positions needed when MGM Cotai opens in early 2017.

Hosted in MGM Macau’s Grand Ballroom on Tuesday afternoon, the first Mass Recruitment Fair was focussed on non-gaming positions across several departments including Hotel Operations and Security.

More than 800 local candidates attended the Fair with more than 200 employment offers made on-site.

Ms Wendy Yu, Senior Vice President of Human Resources of MGM, said, “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.”

MGM’s Mass Recruitment Fairs are being organized in collaboration with Federação das Associações dos Operários de Macau (FAOM), União Geral das Associações dos Moradores de Macau (UGAMM), Macau Gaming Industry Labourers Association (MGILA) and the Associação Geral das Mulheres de Macau (AGMM).
