50% More Demand for Seasonal Workers on Croatian Coast

maidMore than 8,000 unemployed people last year gained seasonal work in tourism in the Split region on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast, and according to a report by daily Slobodna Dalmacija, this year the numbers will be a lot bigger…

In just the first two months of 2015 the Split Employment Office have already advertised 1,973 seasonal positions, which is 49% more than in the same period last year when 1,318 seasonal jobs were advertised. The positions most sought after were cooks, cleaners, receptionists, sales, and maids, as well as jobs in the accommodation and food serving sector.

Bigger hotels on the coast are seeking a variety of different staff, such as hairdressers, masseuse; and beauticians.

“Those services are part of the offerings of a number of international resorts. Our hoteliers are improving their service offerings every season and a number of them can compete with the large international chains for what they offer,” said Žana Gusić from the Split Employment Office.

One thing that is also improving is the length of employment for the summer seasonal workers. The Split Employment Office said that last year it was common for seasonal workers to work right up until the start of December. They hope that the same again happens this year.
