Mövenpick to Create 2,000+ Jobs in Dubai

In a market rife with articles about redundancies, efficiencies and companies doing more with less, the recruitment of employees is still a challenging task despite the availability of talent.

As part of their ongoing expansion plans in the Middle East, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts will be opening four hotels under the UAE-based holding company Seven Tides in Dubai within the next 12 months and will be sourcing around 2,000 employees.

Employers are finding that there is a dramatic increase in the employment market and the candidate pool is both deeper and stronger than it has been in years with experienced candidates, both employed and unemployed, vying for key positions.

However, with the availability of talent comes the task of sifting through resumes and interviewing potential candidates.

“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’ said Dara Pinke Director of Human Resources Dubai Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts. “Offers would be made to approximately 2,300 people in the end.”

While the number of candidates currently looking for work has increased, the same truth still applies: talented people have options. Employers still need to attract, retain and put forward the effort to engage their workforce.

According to Pinke recruitment ads bring a response three or four times higher than in previous years. “Candidates now ask questions regarding opening dates and financial stability,” she said. “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 four hotels set to open during the first quarter of 2010 are 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.
