CTFE to begin hiring process for Baha Mar

Baha Mar’s new owner, Chow Tai Fook Enterprises (CTFE) is scheduled to hire thousands of Bahamian workers in order to meet its April 21 opening date, local media reports.

“I can confirm we will begin the recruitment and hiring process on January 16,” Robert Sands, Baha Mar’s senior vice-president of government and external affairs, told Tribune Business.

Last month, it was announced that the revamped resort casino would have a staggered opening, with 700 of the property’s total 1,800 hotel rooms available upon its April opening.

Prime Minister Perry Christie previously confirmed that CTFE would invest US$200 million in “pre-opening festivities” and final revisions to the unfinished property.

At the time, the Hong Kong conglomerate said it planned to hire 1,500 employees in the new year, with another 4,300 to be hired by December 2017  “when all components [of Baha Mar] have been completed and opened”.

The CTFE’s “initial hiring priority” was to fill positions at the golf course, including its food and beverage operations, and the casino and casino hotel, said Sands.

Among the casino posts available in the first recruitment wave will be shift managers and workers; slot operators; cashiers; cage operators; and certain security posts.

“We are hoping to have in place at least 1,500 jobs by mid-April,” he said, adding he was confident of the April 21 opening date.
