Hundreds of people attended a jobs fair in Aberdeen in the hope of landing a job at Donald Trump’s new golf course.
Mr Trump has halted work on the multi-million pound development at the Menie Estate near Aberdeen until a decision is reached over a nearby wind farm.
However, the golf course is set to open in July and more than 150 jobs were on offer at recruitment fair held at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on Monday.
Fifty full and part-time jobs for positions such as golf course rangers, bar staff and cleaners need filled, and the business tycoon is also looking to recruit around 100 caddies to guide golfers around the championship course.
Trump International spokeswoman Sarah Malone said: “This is a phenomenal project. We are just beginning the recruitment process. This is phase one – there will be many more opportunities in the months and years to come as well.
“The response we have had from local people is that they are very excited. There was a queue when we opened at 8am and we already had several hundred through the doors by 10am.
“The Trump brand is synonymous the world over with luxury and five-star guest services that are second to none. We need to build an operational team that can deliver the same services here in the north-east of Scotland.
“We are looking for local people who are from the area and understand the culture, the places to go, see and stay and we are delighted with the response we have had so far.”
