ASM Global looks to hire 1,000 employees across intercontinental jobs fairs
February 11, 2022

ASM Global, operator of the world’s largest portfolio of arenas, stadiums and theatres, is looking to  hire 1,000 employees in 100 of the world’s leading venues in ambitious plan for return of live events.

As the world continues to emerge from the two-year pandemic, ASM has announced plans six months in the making for an unprecedented three-day international ‘collaborative job fair’ encompassing five continents internationally from 15th to 17th February 2022.

Aimed at helping address the global staffing shortage that many companies in a variety of industries face, ASM leadership hopes that the unique global search will surface diverse talent and expand the company’s reach within its local communities and herald the return to the live-entertainment experience stilled by the COVID pandemic.

Commenting on the first of its kind event targeting countries in the Asia-Pacific, USA, Europe and South America ASM Global Chief Executive and President, Ron Bension stated “the return to live is just what the world needs.

“There’s a thrill, an excitement, that makes this business feel communal for everyone involved. Our hope is that ‘ASM Global Presents: The Next Great Opportunity’ helps ignite that excitement.”

ASM Global APAC Chairman and Chief Executive, Harvey Lister AM said the virtual ASM Global Job Fair was a great initiative and a once in a lifetime opportunity for participants to start an exciting career with ASM Global.

Lister noted “attending the Job Fair, offers a virtual front row seat to learn more about the job opportunities in our Australian venues and those in the dynamic regions of the Asia Pacific and Middle East.

“We are looking for candidates both those who have experience in the event management and services industry but also those with a skillset that might be transferrable.”

The event will enable venues to fill a wide range of roles from hourly to salaried levels with highly skilled and diverse candidates. The jobs include the areas of operations, business development, finance, food and beverage, human resources, sales, marketing, booking, security, guest services, audio visual tech, catering, and more.
