More than 30 prospective employees were added to the Beaches Turks and Caicos workforce recently, following the completion of a job fair at the resort.
With enthusiasm mixed with some display of nervousness at the opportunity to join the most attractive workforce in the Turks and Caicos Islands’ tourism industry, the applicants were welcomed with an overview of the day’s expected proceedings.
General Manager, James McAnally was the first to encourage the applicants and put them at ease as he shared the valued added components of being employed to Beaches Turks and Caicos. Said McAnally, “Being a part of this team is an opportunity that you and your family will benefit from tremendously. We are with you throughout your entire employment journey as we are committed to not only hire, but provide inspiration and allow you to grow and develop to your full potential. Not only do we provide competitive salaries and health benefits, we are committed to our team members’ training and development, and a beneficial work environment.”
Antoinette Thomas, recruitment and compliance specialist in sharing with the prospective applicants said, “For this month, we continue to search for the most ideal candidates with the right attitude to be a part of our Beaches Turks and Caicos family. We continue to employ the right persons who will find the developmental process suitable for them. This job fair has given us the opportunity to engage with some outstanding candidates whom we anticipate will seek to add value to the industry even while they themselves grow professionally with our brand.”
One such candidate who applied for the post of counselor in the Kids Camp was Ennia Seymour who shared that she is ready to venture into a new career path with Beaches. Said Seymour, “My reason for applying is because I love children, and from my research, Beaches Turks and Caicos has the best opportunity for me to grow personally and go after my dream career of one day becoming a teacher. I know that this resort believes in building persons even though I don’t have the experience in this specific area, but people I have spoken to about taking on this challenge, have assured me of the training opportunities available.”
Another applicant, Luckenson Lorestil whose hope is to be employed in the Watersports department shared that he believes he is qualified and ready for a position with the resort’s watersports team. “I am a good swimmer, and I also know that I have the right attitude for this job. Since my high school years, my dream was to work for this company and to do something that I enjoy. Imagine me doing something that I enjoy each day, and then being paid to do it? This is a dream opportunity for me.”
A relatively new worker who came through a similar recruitment drive himself, Concierge Agent Jemima Mesidor noted that, “the process of seeking to join the Beaches Turks and Caicos family can be a little daunting, as initially, you have to show that you are prepared to represent yourself. Each candidate just has to show that they know what they are about and ensure that they show that to the recruitment team.
“It can be a nervous process, but the recruiters will quickly put you at ease. Once you are confident in your abilities and have the courage to speak and present yourself in a mature way, this company will help in building you into becoming the professional that you want to be. I have grown tremendously with this company since joining less than a year ago. I’m happy that I made this move to be a member of this team; it was definitely the best career decision.”
