A new hotel opening in Glasgow in 2018 has announced a ‘casting day’ for creative people looking for jobs.
The Radisson RED is due to launch in spring, with building well underway next to the SEC campus, and it will be the first of its kind in the UK.
The RED philosophy is to connect with ‘millennially-minded individuals through art, fashion and music’, and the Glasgow hotel has around 80 vacancies.
They will cover everything from housekeeping to food and drink, engineering to events – and anyone applying is in for a recruitment process with a difference.
The ‘casting day’ will include fun workshops and opportunities for candidates to get creative through music, art and fashion – all soundtracked to a live DJ.
Curator Michael Weston said: “We are on the lookout for RED brand ambassadors who connect with the world around them. We want our team of creatives to be socially aware and able to make genuine friendships with our guests. We encourage laughter, playfulness and even a little mischief with guests that will drive them to come back again and again.
“We are recruiting for a variety of positions, and for those who have never worked in a hotel before, it’s no problem at all. At RED personality is the most important part – we can show you the rest! Our team delight our guests through a concept called FLOW, that means they move freely through the hotel taking on a variety of tasks across all departments.
“Every day is different, they make the guests feel welcome, cook up tasty food, shake the cocktails and generally ensure our guests are happy, catered to and inspired. We were blown away with the response to our first recruitment drive where we had 400 applications for the first seven roles we released, and so we’re hoping for a great response.
“The casting day will give us the opportunity to see how well the candidates identify with our core values so that we can select the applicants that most align with our brand. We want confident individuals who love the city. Our creatives should stand out.”
