In-park career development and job recruitment event in Hong Kong Disneyland

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort (HKDL) for the first time hosted Disney Open House for Dream Makers, an in-park career development and job recruitment expo showcasing Disney’s heritage, values, and unique, fun-filled cast experience and career possibilities, including 600 new full-time and part-time job opportunities, ranging from in-park to hotel frontline positions for aspiring dream makers. The Open House offered onsite interviews and recruitment for frontline positions, department showcases and leader and cast sharing sessions.
Key business units, such as food & beverage, merchandise, entertainment & costuming, security, custodial, hotel and park operations, set up booths over multiple locations in the park in a vibrant showcase of the different facets of their operations and the prospects of the openings on offer. The two stages featured talks about the future development of the resort, a sneak peek of World of Frozen, Disney heritage, product diversity, equity & inclusion, focus, talent acquisition and cast life.

“Disney is known for its world-class entertainment experiences and service excellence, facilitated by strong training and an open and inclusive cast culture. As one of the key pillars of tourism recovery post-COVID in the city, we are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead to support our future development and for the recovery of tourism with new dream makers joining us.” Michael Moriarty, Managing Director of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort remarks.

HKDL collaborated with trusted organizations to understand social needs and create impactful and timely initiatives that strive to improve accessibility and inclusivity. More than 30 non-profit organizations such as the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui and Caritas, invited participants to join the Open House for potential recruitment opportunities. Chan Man-ho, Deputy Executive Director of The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, expressed his appreciation for the Open House event. “As the city slowly returns to normal, and with Hong Kong being a top tourist destination known for its hospitality, we, at the federation, are delighted to offer opportunities with career planning and employment services to young people so they can pursue their passions. The event allowed them to explore different types of careers through visits to the workplace, sharing sessions and onsite interviews. We believe this will empower them to plan for their future careers as they explore their interests and potential."

Students from local institutions, including students of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts and Vocational Training Council also actively participated in the Open House which inspired them to pursue their dreams.

“Talent recruitment, development and an exceptional cast experience is the cornerstone of our continued success and the work which we are undertaking with our partners will lay the foundation for the resort’s growth as we get prepared to welcome more international and mainland tourists back to Hong Kong and HKDL,” Moriarty adds. The Open House is part of Disney Future Storytellers, an initiative that empowers the next generation of storytellers and innovators to dream about their future, build their talents and skills, and become who they imagine they can be.
