The La Zambra hotel (formerly Byblos), which is slated to open in 2022, has pledged that half of their contracts will go to Mijas locals.

Those in charge of the hotel have signed an agreement of collaboration with Mijas town hall, which means that the company in charge of hiring staff- Este Castillo Operations SLU- will prioritise locals, according to mayor José González, who greenlit the deal.

The hotel's reopening in June 2022 will include 196 rooms, a 2,000 square metres spa, five restaurants, three swimming pools, two courts for tennis and another two for padel, among other services.

The positions on offer from January are head of reception, housekeepers, public relations, maintenance, waiters and directors of food and drink.

Those interested in any of the positions can send their CVs to: lazambra@mijas.es.
