MELBOURNE | QT Hotels, the quirky Australian hotel chain are opening their first Melbourne hotel on Russell Street and, in fitting with their way of doing things a bit differently, will be holding recruitment ‘auditions’ to find some of their new staff members.
QT Melbourne will feature 188 rooms as well as a number of dining and bar venues with a industrial design philosophy inspired by the rag traders of early 1900s Flinders Lane. Featuring handcrafted steel, stone and timber, interior designer Nic Graham, and architectural and design expert Shelley Indyk have collaborated to create visually intriguing spaces which incorporate the QT ‘quirk’.
The hotel won’t be opening until September, which is why the recruitment ‘auditions’ are happening now. During the auditions, there will be a stage, spotlights, street performers and artists, with some familiar faces as top Melbourne hospitality and personality talents compete for roles including a ‘Director of Chaos’. Is ‘Director of Chaos’ another term for ‘Head of Accounting’? That depends on the state of the company’s finance we suppose, but anyway we digress! During auditions there’ll also be a live street art installation and buskers warming up the crowds as they wait to go on stage.
If QT Melbourne sounds like the kind of place you’d like to work at, you can check out the recruitment day at 524 Flinders Street on Mon 11 and Tue 12 July 2016 from 9:00am.
