Roughly 40 residents in Antigua & Barbuda have been selected to fill open positions at Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa, following last month’s job fair. The selected individuals have filled a range of key positions across several departments to include Rooms, Food & Beverage and Front Office. In mid-November, the resort held a job fair at its Dickenson Bay location which saw some 600 individuals turning up and being screened, with shortlisted candidates making it through to the interview and selection process. “We are pleased to have these men and women on board,” General Manager of Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa Matthew Cornall said. “We are confident that they have the right skillset for the industry and for our brand.” The new hires began the onboarding process with orientation sessions during the first week of December. They are currently getting the requisite training for their specific departments. At last month’s job fair, the resort had announced that at least 60 positions needed to be filled. It is anticipated that another job fair will be held in the near future to fill the additional positions and any others that may have become available. Sandals Grande Antigua Resort and Spa has been a major employer on the island since its opening some 28 years ago with a current employment of over 700 persons.
