Disneyland Paris launches autumn recruitment drive
HR Editorial, September 23, 2011
Disneyland Paris has launched a Europe-wide recruitment and sourcing campaign, which will run until 30 March 2012.
The company is looking for 4,000 talented individuals to participate in its 20th birthday celebration.
The move marks its largest European recruitment and sourcing campaign ever.
The 'casting teams' will be traveling to the Baltic states, France, Greece, Italy, Spain, the UK and Eastern Europe.
The first recruitment event in the UK takes place in London between 11-14 October, 2011 with additional dates across the UK in November, December and January.
Candidates may apply for a range of positions in food & beverage, hospitality, hotels and sales, as well as positions in administrative areas including HR, legal and financial services.
Following the success of the recurring 2010 Casting Sessions held in the UK, the French provinces, Italy and Spain, Disneyland Paris Casting Scouts will strengthen this year's measures by spending an entire week in each of the four countries to multiply opportunities for meeting candidates.
Jean-Noël Thiollier, director of talent and reward at Disneyland Paris, said: "Disneyland Paris's monthly presence in these countries has created a real meeting opportunity for candidates who want to join the company. We've made the decision to take time in order to build a real relationship between the candidates and the company during the initial casting phases."
With over 14,500 talented individuals, Disneyland Paris is the largest private employer in Seine-et-Marne and the number one single-site employer in the Ile-de-France region.
