ZAGREB, Jan 27 (Croatia Sun News) – The Days of Jobs in Tourism events are being held in January in the three largest Croatian cities, and in parallel the online version of this event is being organised throughout the month in a bid to attract more and more local people for various jobs during the forthcoming tourist season.
The online platform called “Sezonac .hr” offers advertisements for the most in-demand occupations in the tourism and hospitality sectors, including waiters, receptionists, desk clerks, assistant hotel managers, jobs in cleaning and maintenance, kitchen workers, storage and logistics and so on.
The MojPosao job search portal also explains that apart from companies that specialise in tourism and hospitality, there are also retailers, breweries, beverage producers, bakeries and transport companies hiring more and more workers.
The Croatian Employment Service (HZZ), which has organised the events with the aim of attracting more and more local workers for seasonal employment in the tourist industry, has recently stated that 85 employment have applied for participation in the shows in Osijek, Zagreb and Split. The HZZ believes that about 12,000 visitors, mainly unemployment persons and students of vocational schools, could be expected at those events.
Apart from the HZZ agency, also the ministries of tourism and labour have been engaged in the organisation of the fourth annual edition of the events which advertise opportunities for recruitment across a wide range of roles in tourism, hospitality and other industries, especially during summer.
