Sunborn Gibraltar’s Recruitment Open Day last Thursday exceeded organisers’ expectations with candidates queuing the length of Ocean Village Marina Promenade. Many applications were received from local residents for the 200 permanent roles onboard the world’s five star yacht hotel.
Commenting on the matter, Brian Stevendale, CEO for Sunborn Gibraltar, said, ‘we are delighted that so many Gibraltarians applied to the wide variety of management, administration, sales, hospitality, housekeeping and maintenance roles we have available with Sunborn Gibraltar. The enthusiasm and talent was impressive, particularly amongst young energetic locals who are excited at the prospect of becoming trainee managers in a five star environment, learning skills that would normally have to be acquired overseas.’
