Macau’s burgeoning gaming sector may be stunted if it doesn’t find more people to take up occupations in the industry. The Far East’s largest casino market is currently experiencing growth like never before and one of the main things stunting the market is the lack of availability as far as workers are concerned. It’s being forecast by the Macau Gaming Industry Employees Association (MGIEA) that 1,000 more workers will need to be found. This is mainly down to the new properties being opened on the Cotai strip with the likes of Wynn planning big properties that will open by 2015.
Head of the MGIEA, João Bosco Cheang Hong Lok, recognizes that even now, the casinos are facing manpower problems and stressed that job hopping between companies is now becoming commonplace. It’s not just professional footballers that are mercenaries after all!
Good news for companies looking to recruit staff is that a new job portal has been created exclusively for those seeking a job on the enclave. Hello-jobs.com offers anyone searching for a job the chance to scour every industry that Macau has to offer all in one place.
Jiji Tu, managing director of hello-jobs.com, said, “The Macau market has not yet reached the maturity stage in searching for jobs online or recruiting talent online. Now that hello-jobs.com is bringing Macau something new, both employers and job seekers will experience effectiveness, convenience, and security.”
Up until September, the site is offering companies the chance to post unlimited jobs in order to help the push to find workers for companies operating in the enclave. In addition, we should point out that if you want a job in the gaming industry, the CalvinAyre.com Gaming Jobs Directory is as valuable a tool as any.
