DREAMWORLD is providing the local community with an increased number of job opportunities ahead of the busy Christmas holiday period.
With the seasonal recruitment drive for the December school holiday period now coming to an end, Dreamworld has welcomed approximately 170 new team members since the last employment drive in September, which attracted an additional 110 staff members.
“The recruitment drive has provided more locals with critical work experience to help pave the way for their future careers and give them practical skills within the work force,” said Dreamworld chief operating officer, Paul Callander.
As Australia’s largest theme park, Dreamworld employs between about 900 to 1,100 people at any one time and aspires to nurture and support the South East Queensland community by offering a multitude of positions.
“This season, new team members will work within the fields of food and beverage, ride operation, guest services, life guarding, retail, entertainment, security and cleaning,” Mr Callander said.
“Multi-hire opportunities are often extended to Dreamworld team members, ensuring employees become equipped with numerous skills, working across various departments.
“The new team members are currently completing their orientation and training to prepare them for their new roles and successful applicants from the November and December recruitment rounds will have the opportunity to apply for permanent, ongoing vacancies in the new year following the peak period,” he said.
The theme park industry plays an important role in boosting the local economy and providing the community with practical opportunities in roles that are crucial to the Gold Coast tourism industry.
Theme parks remain vital to tourism, with the industry employing nine per cent of the 46,000 tourism jobs on the Gold Coast.
