Hanover Council on job claims

Published:Friday | April 11, 2008 | 12:10 PM

The Hanover Parish Council said Hanover residents are being overlooked for the hundreds of jobs at the Fiesta Hotel in the parish.

It said it would be writing to the Minister of Labour to complain about the matter.

At yesterday’s Council meeting, several councillors including chairman Lloyd Hill complained that job applications for many residents of Hanover have been ignored.

The councillors said several agencies in the parish have trained hundreds of residents in hospitality skills in preparation for the opening of the hotel.

They claim many suitably qualified graduates from the parish have received no response to their applications.

According to the councillors, many upper level jobs that have been filled were not advertised.
