A thousand jobs are available in the hospitality industry on Phuket

Phuket Has 1000 Resort Jobs Going: Floods Students Wanted, Too

Tuesday, November 1, 2011
PHUKET: About 1000 jobs are going in resorts in Phuket's hospitality industry, a leading official said today, an indication of a strong high season for Phuket.

Phuket Tourism Association vice president Bhumkitti Raktae-Ngarn said he made his assessment after calling seven or eight contacts in different resorts around Phuket, and all of them said they were in need of staff.

Victims of the Bangkok floods also have a chance of being helped to recover on Phuket, Khun Bhumkitti said, through a special course designed to help students achieve better qualifications in hospitality business management.

Positions would be open next semester to students who had become victims of the floods, he said, with those who have been studying at Rajabhat Universities gaining priority.

There were 150 positions in this, the third year of the course, he said, compared to 50 in the first year. The year of study in hospitality business management in English will cost 9500 baht for flood victims per semester compared to the usual 20,000 baht, he said.

Usually the course at Rajaphat University on Phuket attracts students from Phang Nga, who work Monday to Friday and study at weekends. Registration is open this month with classes beginning in November, he said.

There is definitely a shortfall of Thai workers because incoming Thais find accommodation available to them as substandard & over priced. In addition, Thais are as much affected by the high pricing of tuk tuks & motor bike taxis as farangs, so are faced with the outlay to buy or rent a motorbike on roads that are already congested, with parking at a premium.
