Accor goes on a recruitment drive as the sector rebounds

Accor is recruiting for over 1,000 new career opportunities at almost all of its 400 hotels in Australia and New Zealand as the sector recovers from the worst of the pandemic.

“This is a rapidly returning sector and we are now recruiting for roles at most of our hotels, apartments and resorts across the Pacific,” said Accor Pacific CEO Simon McGrath.

“It is an opportunity to create dramatic positive change by bringing in great talent that will enrich our industry’s future forever.”

In a 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 and additional benefits, and will give students the opportunity to broaden their skills and experience across operations, administration, and food and beverage.

“We believe that we have a responsibility to identify, inspire and train people to become the next generation of hoteliers,” said McGrath.

To offer team members greater flexibility than ever before, Accor has introduced an industry-leading ‘Work your Way’ initiative and its training academy provides training and learning experiences to assist team members in their roles and support their career development.

“The hospitality industry has a certain future, and our guests are telling us that they feel confident about travelling again,” McGrath said.
