Marina Bay Sands’ casino department will be looking to fill roles within marketing such as VIP Host, Customer Services Executive and Paiza Services Executive, table games and cage operations, while the food and beverage department is seeking to fill both front-of-house and back-of-house positions.
The integrated casino resort will also appoint staff in positions in the supply chain, security services, surveillance, facilities and public area maintenance, mall management, transportation, and other corporate roles.

Deepening Commitment to Asian Operations
In February, the parent company announced the biggest reinvestment plan to date for its Singapore integrated casino property as a display of its deepening commitment to the region and in particular to Singapore and its tourism sector.
The $1 billion reinvestment plan will span across hotel rooms and suites, new food and beverage offerings, and other enhancements, and is separate from the multi-billion expansion announced in April 2019 that sought to bring in a state-of-the-art entertainment arena, an ultra-luxury hotel tower and additional meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibition space adjacent to the integrated resort.
In March, legislators in the Asian country affirmed their intent to overhaul the country’s gambling industry by introducing two bills: the Gambling Control Bill and the Gambling Regulatory Authority of Singapore (GRA) Bill.
The Gambling Control Bill is seeking to criminalize offenses like proxy betting and underage gambling and create licensing conditions for popular gambling products such as pools, fruit machines and others, while the GRA Bill is looking to establish a unified regulatory body, Casino Regulatory Authority, similar to the UK Gambling Commission.
