Millions of visitors are expected to visit Expo 2020 between October 2021 and March 2022, and before the pandemic, the organisers predicted 25 million visitors, a majority of them tourists.
Dozens of Expo 2020 Dubai pavilions have begun to hire thousands of staff in anticipation of the global event’s launch in next October. Several agencies have been hired to employ thousands of staff to work at country pavilions.
The research is for guest services, tour guides, chefs, hosts and site managers, as governments and embassies look to hire front-facing personnel to host their pavilions. 192 country pavilions, and some of the larger pavilions require up to 200 staff each.
Recruiters are looking for a range of roles, from an overall pavilion manager to visitor experience guides and back-office staff, including cleaning and security.
The salaries on offer vary depending on the host pavilion and their local employment laws, and also the skillset offered by the prospective employee. Languages are a key requirement for this global event, and guides or receptionists who can speak English, Hindi, Arabic and Tagalog are in particular demand.
Pavilions are not looking to hire only host nation staff, as the ability to communicate with visitors is a priority. Recruiters are keen to hire a mix of staff as pavilion guides, from graduates to mums looking to return to the workforce on a temporary basis.
The impact of the Expo will not only be felt locally, as recruitment agents said they are looking further afield for talent.
