More than 2,000 applicants for 700 jobs in Estepona

  • Ikos Resorts is revamping the old Hotel Princess

Some 2,200 people have already applied answered a hotel operator's offer for staff for the launch of its new resort between Estepona and Marbella, due to open in May next year.

Ikos Resorts is revamping the old Hotel Princess, which it acquired in February last year for 75 million euros.

The planned 411-bedroom resort will need 700 staff and the company hopes to recruit half of those locally, although some places will be reserved for foreign students. The firm has also stressed its enthusiasm to take on people with little experience.
