More than 10,000 job seekers flocked to the first job fair of the soon-to-open Okada Manila at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City with a target to complete recruitment for 8,000 positions in the lead-up to the November soft launch.
Okada Manila president Steve Wolstenholme said the integrated resort’s recruitment campaign is in full swing and targets to hire more local talent to fill positions in casino gaming, casino marketing, club operations, security and surveillance, facilities management, cage operations, hotel operations and food and beverage.
“Since the announcement of the new property name and the official soft opening date, our recruitment team has been bullish on hiring quality talents from the local labor market to fill up positions in both our casino and hotel operations and we are very happy to have attracted exactly 10,139 Filipinos which had to go through a rigid selection process,” said Wolstenholme.
“Our vision is to employ highly skilled Filipinos and equip them with the necessary tools in providing extraordinary and high quality service that will thrill, delight and charm guests from the Philippines, the rest of Asia and the world,” added Okada Manila chief operating officer Takahiro Usui.
