W Brisbane is first new build 5-star hotel for Brisbane CBD in 20 years
Over 1600 people applied for a role at W Brisbane ahead of the event looking to land one of the 250 positions across the hotel.
W Brisbane put hopeful candidates to the test in a “Who’s Got Talent” style set-up in front of a panel of judges, including local celebrity and radio presenter Abby Coleman and W Brisbane’s general manager Haldon Philp.
In true W style, candidates were treated like superstars from the moment they arrived with photo moments on the pink carpet, live music from local DJ Little Fritter, as well as make-up from influencer and make-up artist Mia Connor.
“We’re on the hunt for people who embody the passion and vigour of the W Brand,” said Philp. “What better way to start cultivating this energy by hosting a Talent Casting Event that resembles the brand’s state-of-mind and gets people thinking outside of the box. We want to excite talent about what’s to come when the hotel opens next year!”
W Brisbane is set to open in Brisbane’s central business in March 2018.
