Antigua and Barbuda: MSC Cruise Line is excited to host a Job Recruitment Drive in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism and Investment and the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority.

Hundreds of Antiguan and Barbadian citizens will have the opportunity to enter the exciting field in the cruise tourism industry as the Ministry of Tourism & Investment will begin to accept applications for the MSC Cruise Line Recruitment drive from Wednesday, 27th July to 5th August 2022.

Minister of Tourism and Investment, Charles Fernandez, stated that this employment recruitment drive indicates the talent easily found here in Antigua and Barbuda. Minister Fernandez noted that MSC contacted his office, indicating their eagerness to host a recruitment drive in Antigua and Barbuda soon after a recently-concluded cruise job fair.

“Antigua and Barbuda’s tourism industry continues to shine in the international fora, and we can see the fruits of this spotlight. We have industry professionals recruited for jobs in the Jersey Islands, Royal Caribbean Cruise line, and now MSC Cruise Line offers up to 225 persons to be contracted for employment. This is what resilient rebounding looks like after a global pandemic. This is what next-level tourism engagement looks like,” Fernandez stated.

Individuals can log onto the official website – www.visitantiguabarbuda.com, to access the online information, which will display job descriptions, pay scales, and additional information for the available positions. Applicants will have the option to email their resumes for their respective job choices to careers@visitaandb.com.

According to Simone Richards, Policy Specialist within the Ministry of Tourism & Investment, “Job opportunities will be available in Greece, Dubai, and Brazil. All ship positions are being made available, and the application process will be conducted in three phases. There will first be a prescreening process, then an invitation-only interview for individuals who meet the minimum requirement. Successful candidates will then proceed to technical interviews with MSC Talent Acquisition Team. Applicants should be citizens living in Antigua and Barbuda.
