Nearly 2000 jobs in Dubai to be created by Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts

It has appeared that four hotels will be opened by Mövenpick Hotels & Resort, under the UAE-based holding company Seven Tides, in Dubai within the next 12 months, as a part of the company's ongoing expansion plans in the region. The opening will lead to the employment of nearly 2000 workers.

It won't be wrong to say that since whole of the market is well aware about redundancies, and companies managing 'more with less' amidst recession, the recruitment of employees is a challenging task in spite of the availability of talent.

"Anyone in the field of recruitment can tell you that 2,000 people hired means 20,000 CVs reviewed and 10,000 applicants screened with half of those going on to a second interview with the departments. Offers would be made to approximately 2,300 people in the end," said Dara Pinke, Director of Human Resources, Dubai Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.

Pinke expressed that now recruitment ads bring a response three or four times higher than in past years.

She continued: "Candidates now ask questions regarding opening dates and financial stability. Many are looking for assurances about how the redundancy process is handled within your company and how they will be treated if laid off in the future. There are great jobs out there and your best players know it"

The Royal Amwaj Resort & Spa located on the crescent of the Palm Jumeirah; the Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel situated adjacent to the Ibn Battuta Mall; the Oceana Hotel & Spa on the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah; and the Mövenpick Hotel Deira are the names of the four hotels, which are likely to open during the first quarter of 2010.
