Accor is recruiting for over 1,000 new career opportunities at almost all of its 400 hotels in Australia and New Zealand, in a bid to fill vacant positions as travel demand returns.
Accor Pacific CEO, Simon McGrath, said: “This is a rapidly returning sector and we are now recruiting for roles at most of our hotels, apartments and resorts across the Pacific.”
In a brand new recruitment initiative – the Accor Internship Program – Accor is working with 22 hospitality institutions across Australia and New Zealand to provide on-the-job training for 100 students.
These roles, which are primarily applied for via hospitality, travel and tourism higher education institutions, will be fully-paid internships, with travel allowances. Recruits will have the opportunity to broaden their skills and experience across operations, administration, and F&B.
McGrath said: “We believe that we have a responsibility to identify, inspire and train people to become the next generation of hoteliers. We will use this opportunity to advance our commitment to diversity and inclusion, by bringing people into our industry with a wide range of interests, backgrounds and experiences.”
