It was not without pride that Tropical Islands General Manager Wouter Dekkers recently announced that no jobs had to be cut at Tropical Islands during the corona-related closure period of 10 months in total. In fact, it was even possible to increase the short-time allowance for the employees over the entire period, which is not typical for the leisure industry.
Nevertheless, the growing staff shortage in Germany's tourist sector does not stop at Brandenburg's tropics.
"Some employees have changed careers during the lockdown. Now that tourism is picking up again, we are naturally missing them," Dekkers explains the problem.
A regional recruiting campaign by the company is therefore intended to provide the first remedy.
"From now on, we are looking for new colleagues especially in the areas of service, reception, kitchen and cleaning," summarises Monja Renton-Cooper, director of the human resources department. But additional staff will also be needed in other departments in the medium term. Professionals of all ages are welcome, as are career changers, pupils and students.
"We have a wide range of job offers. It's always worth taking a look at our careers page," adds Renton-Cooper.
In addition to appropriate remuneration and many employee benefits such as free use of the adventure and sauna facilities, free ticket promotions, flexible working hours and discounts on in-house products and services, the tropical holiday resort also offers permanent positions instead of seasonal contracts. The all-year operation makes it possible.
