The Lisboeta Macau is an integrated resort facility that is currently under construction. It is set in Cotai and the latest news show just how ambitious its management is. The venue will soon hold its own job fair and it revealed that it wants to hire over 1,500 employees on gaming positions. The fair will take place on July 16, while the facility should open in 2020.
The co-chair of SJM Holdings Angela Leong and her son Arnaldo Ho are the developer of this property. They own the company called Macau Theme Park and Resorts Limited. Besides gaming positions, they are also looking for 180 non-gaming staff members. Ho said that the Lisboeta is going to an integrated resort that is accessible to all Macau residents, not just the tourist.
It should diversify the economic development of the city and offer more workplace choice for the local workforce. Ho also said that the company will give priority to the local talent, which should further emphasize their upward mobility. At the same time, while this sounds good for the local workforce, most casinos are already doing the same. With the biggest gambling market not just in Asia but globally, the need for foreign workers was never big in Macau.
The Lisboeta Jobs Drive
The fair will run for about seven hours and take place in the Regency Art Hotel. The new casino facility is looking for practically all positions. These include every level of the hierarchy of a casino – from the front-line employees to the management spots. Individual departments are also in the recruitment process.
That is why marketing, facilities management, front office, HR and IT, food and beverage and all other departments will be looking at applicants. The facility size clearly demands such a large workforce. Once complete, the Lisboeta will cover over 141,000 square meters. The complex will have three hotels, ranging from 574 rooms in the Lisboeta Hotel to just over 80 rooms in Casa de Amigo.
Further amenities will include a zip line and an indoor skydiving facility. For family entertainment, the venue will offer the first MX4D and IMAX cinema in Macau. This alone shows that so far the family-friendly fun facilities, like a simple IMAX cinema, were not present in the city. The Lisboeta will look to change this and its current cost is $641 million.
