Setia City Mall tenants on recruitment drive

SHAH ALAM: Setia City Mall, nestled in the heart of the 4,000-acre Setia Alam township in Shah Alam, is estimated to create some 2,000 jobs for the local community with its opening this May.

The mall boasts a gross development value of RM450 million and spans approximately 700,000 sq ft of net lettable area spread over four floors. With anchor tenants such as Golden Screen Cinemas and Parkson, the mall will house 11 major retailers and over 230 speciality stores. It is set to create employment opportunities in fields such as retailing, customer service, cleaning, security, maintenance and operations.

To keep the jobs local, Setia City Mall is hosting a recruitment drive this Sunday at the Shah Alam Convention Centre from 10am to 5pm.

Jobseekers will get the opportunity to learn about the available positions, have on-the-spot interviews and submit their resumes directly to employers seeking workers for the new mall.

The initiative will see participation and job opportunities from companies like Fitness First, Zara, Uniqlo, Nichii, Delicious, Harvey Norman, Courts and Rasa Food Arena.

“Setia City Mall has been designed to be the heart of the community, therefore it’s very important that we match the jobs available with local employees. Our recruitment drive is aimed at finding the right people to fit these career opportunities,” said Setia City Mall general manager Philippa Holmes in a statement.

Setia City Mall is developed by Greenhill Resources Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between S P Setia Bhd and the Asian Retail Investment Fund, a fund managed by the investment arm of international property developer Lend Lease. The company will also be marketing and managing the mall.

Earlier last month, the mall received Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark due to the green initiatives implemented such as high efficiency air-conditioning system, integrated building energy management system, natural daylight in the mall concourse and car park areas as well as energy efficient escalators and lifts.

There is also a rainwater harvesting system for landscape irrigation, low-emissivity window glazing, bicycle parking bays and bio-composting of organic food waste.
