Grosvenor Casinos, one of the United Kingdom’s leading gambling operators, has announced openings for over 500 job seekers at its casinos across the country.
The company will be offering jobs to people interested in a career in the casino industry through its Grosvenor Casinos Gaming Academy programme held at 12 of its physical outlets. Qualified participants will be automatically employed by the casino full-time with all the attached benefits.
As part of the training process, participants will be trained on how to become a croupier and expert hands at leading popular casino games like blackjack, roulette and poker. Participants will also be put through industry jargon like knowing the difference between odds and payouts, the correct way to spin the roulette ball and how best to manage the fast-paced nature of the casino environment.
There are experienced hands on ground to tutor the trainees on counting the times’ tables up to 35, receiving tips, and tricks to enhance their dexterity when collecting and gathering bets and chips, so as to deliver efficient yet excellent service to guests. As part of Grosvenor Casinos’ dedication to safer gambling, the trainees will also be taught how to interact with guests to prevent harmful gambling while encouraging responsible play.
Grosvenor Casinos has over 500 participants in the programme and is recruiting nationwide for roles apart from croupiers. Interested individuals can still join the ongoing programme by visiting the company’s website or their local club’s social media pages to learn more details.
“We have a strong track record for providing training opportunities for the nation’s job seekers to upskill and join our team. A career as a casino dealer is a highly skilled profession which offers flexible working as well as the chance to travel and work all over the world,” said Sue Price, Head of Table Gambling at Grosvenor Casinos.
“Taking place across a number of our casinos, we are determined to offer all applicants of the gaming academies the chance to work for Grosvenor Casinos and become part of the team.”
Chun Hei Koo, a 29-year-old resident of Cardiff, spoke highly of his experience in the programme.
“I moved to the UK three months ago and decided to apply to the training programme as I thought this would be a great job opportunity for my future after having worked in a hotel for a couple of months,” he said.
“So far, our mentor has been fantastic, teaching us every casino game alongside the specific rules in detail, whilst letting us practise as much as possible to get used to all aspects of the job. I hope to start my career with the Grosvenor Casino here in Cardiff and cannot wait to see where this unique opportunity will lead me.”
