Hundreds turn up for Royal Caribbean Recruitment Fair

The Ministry of Tourism, Culture and the Arts said it was pleased with the overwhelming response to Royal Caribbean Group’s Seafarers Recruitment Programme which began today at the National Academy of the Performing Arts in Port of Spain.

The Recruitment Fair started at 9am on Tuesday and persons turned up in large numbers to seek positions with Royal Caribbean Group.

Minister Randall Mitchell said, “Royal Caribbean Group set a target of at least 2,000 persons, however the numbers that turned out today is more than expected.  This response is an indication of the high level of interest in this excellent opportunity.”

Minister Mitchell continued, “the Ministry sees this initiative as a means of supporting economic recovery and reducing unemployment rate that developed as a result of the pandemic.  We continue in our commitment to ensure that those who are trained in areas such as Hospitality, Food and Beverage Management, Culinary Arts or in the field of Entertainment are afforded the opportunity to work with one of the largest cruise lines in the world.”

The Ministry said persons who were not processed on Tuesday will be accommodated at NAPA on Friday 10th June.

Applicants are reminded that to be considered for the interview process they must have proof of a completed online application, a police certificate of character or the application receipt, a valid passport or proof that they have applied for passport renewal and a printed copy of their resume.
