Grosvenor Casino in Blackpool, England, has announced 13 new job opportunities with the company, available to jobseekers in the Blackpool area and spread across multiple departments, from card dealers to gaming team members.
"We have a really good gaming academy, where you can come in with absolutely no experience of a casino, and you can learn how to deal all of our games. And then we can upskill you across the rest of the casino as well,” Nikolas MacFadden, General Manager of Grosvenor Casino in Blackpool told Blackpool Gazette.
Upskilling and training opportunities are available to all employees once they become part of the team. MacFadden further remarks that anyone can come into the position with “little to no experience,” gaining training thanks to the company’s regime.
“We have poker, roulette and different card games,” the General Manager further told the cited source. “But you can multi-skill as well across the different areas of the casino, such as slots, F&B and work your way up to supervisor and management as well.”
Training allows, in the case of dealers, for instance, to pick up new skills along the way and to learn more about what their jobs entail. Throughout the course, trainees undergo dexterity training to gain flexibility with their fingers for when it comes to dealing; learn how to properly spin the roulette ball correctly; are trained in customer service skills; and more.
Owned by Rank Group, Grosvenor Casinos is the UK’s largest multi-channel casino operator, with 52 venues across the UK. It offers a range of popular casino table games, including roulette, blackjack, baccarat, poker; as well as electronic roulette and slot machine games.
