This recruitment process, managed by Meridian Recruitment Agency Limited, involved a rigorous registration and pre-screening of e-applications submitted by the nationals. Following this intensive selection process, 150 candidates were further evaluated, out of which 80 talented individuals were chosen to attend in-person interviews at Queen’s Hall over two days.

The impressive turnout and the high calibre of applicants left Disney Cruise Line absolutely “blown away.” Their recruiters praised the outstanding coordination and professionalism displayed by the Ministry and Meridian Recruitment Agency.
