Long-awaited luxury property, The Langham, Gold Coast, set within The Jewel development, has begun a major recruitment drive to find up to 100 staff across guest and concierge services, housekeeping, food and beverage, the kitchen and its conference and events offering.

“The Langham Hotels and Resorts’ rich history of grandiose luxury has been built by our international teams that bring talent, expertise and a luxurious mindset to the experience of our guests,” said general manager of The Langham, Gold Coast, John O’Shea.

“We are now on the hunt for talented team members to create this level of luxury on the Gold Coast, individuals that can inject their own magic touch of indulgence and become a face that both locals and tourists will come to know and love.”

The new 339-room beachfront hotel has a pillarless ballroom for up to 400 attendees for seated meals and a pre-function space with ocean views, in addition to several outdoor event spaces.

The hotel group is looking to entice talent to the new property with promises of luxury, flexibility and celebration of team achievements.

“At The Langham, we have always prided ourselves on extending the hotels’ luxury into the experience of our teams,” said The Langham, Gold Coast’s director of human resources, Briony Low.

“We understand first-hand the challenges the entire industry has faced over the past two years and thanks to The Langham legacy, we’ll be providing our new team members with more than just a job.

“We are looking to really change the game for hospitality workers in the region by extending the luxury we provide our guests to our team members with a range of new employee incentives including luxury amenities and designer uniforms, bespoke employee service and personalised benefits that suit the lifestyle and needs of unique individuals which may include flexible work, nine-day fortnights, paid volunteering leave and a focus on overall wellbeing.”

Those wishing to be considered for a role at the new property should email through their CV.

The hotel has yet to set its exact opening date.
