The Cyprus subsidiary of Melco Resorts & Entertainment has unveiled plans to launch a new casino dealer school during the upcoming European summer as it prepares for the opening of City of Dreams Mediterranean in 2022.
Melco owns 75% of City of Dreams Mediterranean developer ICR Cyprus, which in turn owns Cyprus Casinos – operator of a temporary casino in Limassol near the City of Dreams site and satellite casinos in Nicosia, Ayia Napa and Paphos.
According to a press release issued Wednesday, Melco Cyprus is now calling for applicants to join a careers day this Friday with a view to filling vacancies as trainee dealers, gaming machine attendants, surveillance operators, security officers, cashiers, hosts or cleaners.
However, it will also launch the dealer school in summer aimed at fully training attendees to deal at City of Dreams Mediterranean, scheduled to open mid-2022.
“We consider our colleagues to be our most valued and important asset,” said Vice President, Human Resources at Melco Cyprus, Emilios Rotsides.
“We focus on choosing the best talent to serve our customers to provide standards of service that are second to none and are committed to offering world-class quality training and talent nurturing opportunities for professional and personal growth.
“Our global philosophy is ‘we hire on attitude, image and potential and we train on skills’. To this end, Melco focuses on developing colleagues’ skills, building on their competences to enhance performance, delivering value and personal growth while offering competitive remuneration and benefits packages.”
Melco said it expects to increase its workforce from 700 to 1,500 in the coming months, eventually reaching 2,500 permanent jobs once City of Dreams Mediterranean opens.
