hotel jobs in Dubai-There’s been one major change to the way UAE hotels are recruiting, but they are doing it in force. Regardless of the department they are hired for, hoteliers are looking for workers who are multi-skilled.
Anthony Lagrabette, Head of Hotel Asset Management, MENA Region, Colliers, said that post-pandemic hotel employees no longer have a ‘one task, one role’ mentality. In the past few years, staff optimization (during the Covid years) has required employees to be more versatile and adjust to new responsibilities more quickly.
Hotel organizations that understand the advantages of flexibility and hybrid working environments are able to provide these new talents, which can be described as the Swiss Army knife of the industry. In addition, we recognize smart work by providing fast-track career opportunities.”
hotel jobs in Dubai-Following the COVID-19 breakout, a large number of UAE hotel employees were laid off. In summer last year, hotels began recruiting to fill some of these positions, but even then they were cautious. Until occupancy levels returned to more comfortable levels, HR costs had to be strictly controlled. It was also not possible for hotels to hire full-time staff during this period, as this would negatively affect the crucial early phase of their operations.
