Peppers seeking 100 employees

by LEONIE BRANN

ATTITUDE is the key to being among the right candidates to fill more than 100 service jobs now being offered by the luxury Peppers Salt Resort and Spa development at South Kingscliff.

With the five-star resort and spa due to open at the beginning of next month, the drive to find the right employees has stepped up a notch, with Peppers enlisting Tursa Employment and Training to help with the recruitment process.

So far about 150 applications have been received for the various service positions, with most candidates having some experience in hospitality or service industries.

But prior experience is not a prerequisite, Peppers Salt Resort and Spa general manager Michael Saville said.

"So far the calibre of candidates I have seen has been excellent," Mr Saville said, noting the large number of hospitality industry professionals that call the Tweed Coast home.

"Essentially candidates don't need to be experienced, they just need to be friendly, professional and helpful people.

"We would like to think within a 10 to 15 kilometre radius of us (the resort), we can provide some interesting opportunities for the people of the Tweed Coast."

Mr Saville said strong local knowledge would be an advantage.
