[September 27, 2016, Macau] MGM plans to roll out a series of Mass Recruitment Fairs for local talent from now until the Grand Opening of MGM COTAI (scheduled for Q2 of 2017), including specific Fairs that are 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) as a way to further engage the community while MGM expands its Golden Lion Team. The Campaign offers over 1,200 new positions with approximately 6,000 job openings for both non-gaming and gaming departments.
The first Mass Recruitment Fair took place at MGM MACAU’s Grand Ballroom today, offering non-gaming job openings under seven departments including Hotel Operations and Security. MGM’s Talent and Acquisition team provided one-stop service for all candidates at the Recruitment Fair, including online submission of applications, interviews, and issuing offers of intent. Over 800 local candidates attended the Fair, and more than 200 employment offers were made on-site. Representatives from FAOM, UGAMM and MGILA were also in attendance to observe and exchange ideas with Ms. Wendy Yu, Senior Vice President of Human Resources of MGM, in preparation for the upcoming collaborations with the integrated resort enterprise.
Ms. Wendy Yu said of the Campaign, “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. We believe that great people create great moments, and we are confident that the Golden Lion Team will significantly contribute to Macau’s position as a world leisure and tourism center.”
Of the collaboration with MGM, Ms. Elaine Wong, Vice President of FAOM said, “We are happy to see that enterprises are putting emphasis in recruiting locals. We look forward to more collaborations as we help to reduce local unemployment rate. We hope to see more local enterprises, not only the integrated resort operators, to create job opportunities, upward and linear career mobility for local residents. For those who are looking for a change in their career, attending recruitment fairs of this sort is a great way to find a desirable job.”
The Mass Recruitment Fairs are part of our effort in offering a wide spectrum of horizontal and vertical career mobility options for local talent. In addition to creating new positions for our MGM COTAI, our team members of MGM MACAU have been constantly receiving training and internal transferal opportunities so that they can discover new areas of professional interest and career choices. Committed to our sustainability vision, “Create a Better Tomorrow Today” and to fulfill our corporate social responsibility, MGM will continue to support the development of local talent by providing diverse career options and training programs.
