Cableway recruitment: bigger and better
Our annual recruitment campaign proved bigger and better this year – with more than 1 700 applicants looking to work at the Cableway.
Every year we hire seasonal staff, across several departments, to lend a hand during the summer months – our busiest period.
In 2015, we took on a digital approach – a first for the mountain. Potential recruits were required to fill out an online application form and attach a video recording of themselves. This year we fine-tuned the process, and recruits could either apply online or attend our one-day only Recruitment Expo at Kenilworth Centre.
From mid-July to 30 September 2016 we received 868 online applications – and this time around, applicants had to fill out a form and attach a photo of themselves (a simpler requirement than the video). At the expo we processed 857 recruits.
The Cableway’s human resource manager, Tasneem Rajie explains, “The tweaks to our recruitment process have definitely paid off, in that our aim was to attract a bigger pool of applicants and we have certainly been successful in this regard. Given that we build on our recruitment drive each year, we will continue to examine … whether the process can be streamlined even further.”
Good luck to our seasonal staff – it’s going to be a fun-filled few months at the Cableway!
