Creative ap­proach

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

QT Ho­tels and Re­sorts has taken the un­usual ap­proach of en­list­ing Fre­man­tle cre­atives San Cisco singer and drum­mer Scar­lett Stevens and Em­pire Rose fash­ion de­signer Kath Cizeika to help with its re­cruit­ment process ahead of its QT Perth open­ing on Au­gust 1.

The na­tional ho­tel chain is look­ing to em­ploy buskers and street artists through its re­cruit­ment process, held in part­ner­ship with the WA Academy of Per­form­ing Arts (WAAPA) where po­ten­tial staff will go through a mock au­di­tion process.

The duo will be joined by pho­tog­ra­pher Jar­rad Seng and ac­tor Ade­laide Kane, who will high­light Perth’s cul­ture and what in­spires them about the city via video teasers.

QT Perth gen­eral man­ager Ja­son Coo­ley said prospec­tive staff would take part in the­atri­cal role play and im­promptu in­ter­views at WAAPA to let their per­son­al­ity shine through.

“We are seek­ing true in­di­vid­u­als for a range of jobs we are cur­rently re­cruit­ing for, in­clud­ing our ‘di­rec­tor of chaos’,” he said.

“Tat­toos, man-buns and kooky hair styles are wel­come – as long as you have a pas­sion for the creative in­dus­tries and de­voted in­ter­est in ex­cep­tional hos­pi­tal­ity.”

Cizeika said the ho­tel was her home away from home and en­cour­aged those in creative in­dus­tries to get in­volved.

“If you are just start­ing out, per­haps you are a young de­signer, artist or muso, then this would be a bril­liant place to work, sur­rounded by other cre­atives and like­minded peo­ple,” she said.
