Adelaide Casino set to employ 700 people

Earlier this year, Adelaide Casino let go almost all of its 1100 employees after it was forced to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This week there was some good news for the casino operators, with its expansion plans now able to go ahead.

With four new restaurants and two new bars, this $330 million expansion will also provide jobs for 700 people.

The Riverbank redevelopment will see the opening of jobs in the hospitality, food, beverage and gaming sectors. These roles will include food and beverage attendants, bar attendants, chefs of all levels and an executive pastry chef.

Sol Bar and Restaurant is one of the headlining venues in the expansion. It will be offering Modern Australian cuisine and amazing views over the River Torrens and Adelaide oval.

Also opening is luxury hotel Eos by SkyCity. Roles available include room attendants, concierge, porters, guest service agents and guest relations managers. This 120 room hotel will start taking bookings from 1 December.

Premier and Tourism Minister Steven Marshall, said the Casino expansion was set to become a major drawcard for the state.

“We are really looking forward to the opening of these new restaurants and hotel because it will give more reasons for people to visit Adelaide and our regions, to experience our world-class food, wine and hospitality.” 

Other venues include Chinese restaurant Huami, which boasts a 1200 bottle wine wall, ITL Italian restaurant, neighbouring Festival Plaza,  Lucky Noodle, offering South East Asian food and Westward, sitting on SkyCity’s western edge.

David Christian, general manager of SkyCity Adelaide said, “We’re thrilled to play a part in shining a light on the South Australian tourism industry, as well as attracting interstate and international visitors back to our state, when the time is right.

“This investment by SkyCity is not only helping to transform our entertainment and tourism industry, but also offering the hospitality industry some incredible recruitment opportunities, with the SkyCity workforce set to expand by approximately 700 employees by the middle of next year.” 

Also recruiting is SkyCity’s North Tce training facility. Positions include gaming and training table games dealers as well as  food and beverage roles.

There is no specific opening date as of yet but operator are aiming towards late 2020.
