Millennium Hotels and Resorts has announced a regional drive to recruit 4,000 staff members by 2018 – with a focus on hiring GCC nationals.
The brand has confirmed they will be searching for 400 managers and executives as well as 600 supervisors, allowing national talent the opportunity to apply and join Millennium Hotels and Resorts in the Middle East region.
With properties confirmed for Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Turkey and Oman, the next 12 months will involve the employment of 4,000 colleagues across the 10 hotels.
“It is vital that we demonstrate that the hospitality industry is a viable career option above other industries by investing in training and developing our talent,” said Kevork Deldelian, chief operating officer at Millennium Hotels and Resorts in the Middle East.
“The perception of the hotel industry as a career is changing amongst GCC nationals as hotel groups are seeking ways to attract and retain national talent. The group invests in its colleagues to ensure they undergo extensive training and development so they have the tools to deliver the highest service standards to guests.”
