Melco Resorts & Entertainment plans to open a casino dealer school next summer.

Cyprus.- Melco Resorts & Entertainment continues to develop its City of Dreams Mediterranean integrated resort and in the meantime is seeking to train potential employees by opening a dealer school.

The Melco Cyprus casino dealer school is expected to be launched this summer in Limassol, where Melco operates a temporary casino.

The company said: “[The casino-dealer school] will provide successful Dealer position candidates with the opportunity to receive first-class paid training to develop the required skills for success.”

The City of Dreams Mediterranean integrated resort is expected to be launched in the summer of 2022. Once it opens, Melco hopes to create an estimated 4,000 local job opportunities and approximately 2,500 permanent jobs. 

Melco Cyprus currently employs around 700 people, the vast majority of whom are Cypriot citizens. The casino operator expects that number to reach 1,500 in the coming months.

The company will hold its fourth annual Open Career Day on Friday, June 4 2021, offering candidates an opportunity to join its temporary casino in Limassol and satellite casinos in Nicosia, Ayia Napa and Paphos.

Melco’s casinos in Cyprus closed in December due to Covid-19 countermeasures and was able to reopen at 30 per cent capacity on May 17. Capacity was increased to 50 per cent in June.

Those who want to enter the casino, will need to present a certificate to prove they had a negative Covid-19 test carried out within the last 72 hours or at least one Covid-19 vaccine dose at least three weeks prior.
