The Antigua & Barbuda Hotels and Tourism Association (ABHTA) is excited to announce that it will host a Hospitality Job Fair on Wednesday, September 27, 2023, to celebrate World Tourism Day.
The event will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Multipurpose and Exhibition Centre at Perry Bay.
In line with the United Nations’ focus on investing in people for World Tourism Day 2023, the ABHTA recognizes the critical importance of human resources in the tourism industry.
According to the UN, the global tourism workforce will require millions of hospitality graduates annually until 2030, with an additional 800,000 jobs per year requiring specific vocational training.
The Chairman of the ABHTA, Craig Marshall, emphasizes the importance of this initiative, stating, “What better way to celebrate World Tourism Day than by opening up the industry to potential employees throughout
Antigua and Barbuda. This year’s event will feature 26 businesses eager to fill positions across various operations sectors. We are also delighted to welcome our partners from the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority and the Antigua and Barbuda Hospitality Training Institute, who will showcase their services.”
Job seekers attending the fair will be able to explore various positions, including Culinary, Food and Beverage, Maintenance, Housekeeping, Tour Guides, Administrative Team, Watersports, Tour Guides, and Adjunct Lecturers.
To make the process easier and more efficient, job seekers are encouraged to pre-register to secure an interview time slot.
