Monthly Rewards and More: 1,000 Aminess Tourism Workers Desired for 2022 Season

November 7, 2021 - 1,000 Aminess tourism workers are desired for the 2022 season, with the promise of monthly rewards, holiday bonuses, accommodation, meals, and expert-led training in Croatia's best destinations. 

Travel company Aminess has started preparatory activities for next season. As it expects greater interest from key markets, Aminess has introduced a new recruitment campaign under the slogan “Aminess Jobs - Where Friendship Makes a Difference”, reports HRTurizam.


The campaign seeks to attract 1,000 employees to work in the best tourist destinations. It offers stimulating monthly rewards of up to 5,000 kuna, Christmas bonuses and holiday pay, hotel accommodation for employees, hot meals, and training programs led by experts.

Aminess points out that more than half of their seasonal employees return to work in their facilities, with material working conditions improving every year. In addition, Aminess announces that they plan to invest almost one million kuna in the education of all its employees in 2022.

Aminess is among the first to start preparing for the next season and is looking for chefs, assistant chefs, pizza masters, butchers, waiters, serving-assistant waiters, bartenders, receptionists, and maids.

The campaign, which seeks to attract new employees to work in high-class hotels, villas, and camps in Novigrad in Istria, Krk, Korčula, and Pelješac, also features renowned chef David Skoko and well-known blogger Ella Dvornik, who spent the day as employees.

“At Aminess, we focus on learning and development with the best professionals. This resulted in collaboration with chef David Skoko, who passes on his knowledge to our employees. Educated staff in the tourism sector are of great importance. Therefore, Aminess, in addition to competitive working conditions, educates all its employees to be ready for the tourist season and provide guests with an unforgettable experience in the destination," said Dalibor Matovina, Director of Operations at Aminess Hotels and Camps.

Aminess hotels and camps have high category hotels and campsites in Novigrad in Istria, Krk, Korcula, and Pelješac. The hotels and camps can accommodate more than 12,500 guests.

Regardless of the employment status, all Aminess employees are also allowed to be promoted. This is evidenced by the example of the director of one of the camps, who began her career at Aminess in 2013 as a receptionist. In just four years, she was promoted to the restaurant manager position, after which she was appointed to the role of the camp director.

“After a total of eight years of working in various positions at Aminess, this season, I was in the camp director role. Learning and investing in yourself is the key to personal success," points out Tatjana Glamatović, director of the Aminess Sirena camp.

This year, Aminess provided its employees with a bonus of HRK 5,000, a Christmas bonus of HRK 3,000, a gift for a child and another gift of HRK 600, and a rebate of up to HRK 1,800. Considering all the above, Aminess hotels and camps are proud that in addition to their regular income, they have enabled their employees to pay additional rewards and benefits in the amount of more than 10,000 kuna.

Season in Novigrad Continuing Thanks to Aminess Wine & Gourmet Nights

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Crnjak writes on the 28th of September, 2019, although the summer is well and truly over and we're now at the very end of September and opening the door to autumn, the Maestral Hotel within the Aminess Hotels group of Laguna Novigrad is still very much full.

Last night, each of the eighty seats at their a la carte restaurant, Oliveto, were filled thanks to this year's finest Aminess Wine & Gourmet Nights dinner, a fine-dining event with renowned Istrian chef David Skoko. This is a project that is now going on for the third year in a row, every last Friday from April to October, and aims to promote the richness of Istrian cuisine and wine, as well as present local seasonal foods.

The event is designed in a way that prepares guests several meals in an open kitchen, so that guests can not only watch everything that is being done, they can also peek into pots and pans and talk to their chefs in breaks or take pictures with them as a souvenir. The dinner costs 350 kuna per person, and guests can combine it with various packages in line with their stay at the hotel, from wellness to the Wine & Walk event, a unique walk with a glass of wine in hand, with tastings of local wines and Istrian snacks. As you can imagine, this is a very popular package.

The Aminess Dinner is also an opportunity to introduce young promising chefs from across the Republic of Croatia and the wider region to each other in Novigrad, and the response so far has great, David Skoko revealed.

"This is my favourite guest-event that I do throughout the year, and I work with my friends and colleagues from Croatia and abroad, most often from Slovenia, and the top winemakers whose wines we pair with our dishes. I'm very pleased to hear back from many young people, chefs from different parts of the country, who offer themselves to come to work with us and experience an atmosphere that is extremely good. We, the ten or twelve of us, enter the kitchen early in the morning and ''rock'' all day long in order to actually make it look so laid back and elegant , but it's really serious and the level of chef engagement is demanding,'' stated Skoko.
