Over 3,500 jobseekers submitted applications on Saturday for dealer positions at Marina Bay Sands

Over 6,000 people turned up on Saturday at the integrated resort's (IR) two-day job fair, which ends today, at Suntec City Convention Centre.

Up for grabs are over 1,000 positions as dealers for the resort's casino. Over 3,500 applications were received on Saturday.

The resort had said its earlier efforts to fill 4,500 gaming vacancies had seen only 2,000 of these jobs taken up.

Mr Ken Davie, senior vice-president for casino operations at Marina Bay Sands, said: 'We remain focused on hiring locals and thank Singaporeans for their interest in working for us.

'In the coming months, we will roll out other recruitment activities to attract Singaporeans to work in our premier integrated resort, including non-gaming positions such as hotel operations.'

For its position of dealer, candidates need to be above 21 years old, have manual dexterity, customer service and simple arithmetic skills, and not be colour-blind.

The starting pay is $1,800 before tips and three months' training is provided. Job seekers on Saturday said that they had not gone to Marina Bay Sands' previous job fairs as there was insufficient publicity about the events.
