St Regis looking to recruit 32 more staff
More than half of staff at the newly opened St Regis Bermuda Resort are Bermudian – and the number is expected to increase.
Jason Hayward, the Minister of Labour, said today that it was expected that more than 90 Bermudians would start work at the St George’s hotel in March, but that number had not yet been reached.
He added: “As of June 11, there were 149 full time employees, of which 86 are Bermudian and 63 are work permit holders.
“The hotel is actively recruiting for 32 additional positions. Additionally, some 50 gaming academy positions were recently advertised by the resort.
“The ministry is pleased to report that 47 Bermudians have signed agreements to participate in this training to date and there is currently capacity to include more Bermudians.”
Mr Hayward said that, between the employment and training opportunities offered by the new resort, he was confident that the hotel had been a benefit to Bermudians and the economy.
The resort, which opened on May 22, held a career and interview fair in March and also announced that it would run a Casino Gaming Academy, scheduled to start next Monday.
Jan Vanhaelewyn, the resort’s general manager, said earlier this month: “Based on the significantly increased demand over the next few months, the resort is now in a fortuitous position and continues to increase its workforce, seeking the most discerning associates who are innovative, team oriented and passionate about providing exceptional service through creating bespoke experiences.”
He added that job opportunities were available in housekeeping, culinary arts and food and beverage as well as the St Regis Signature programme of butler services.
