The Star Brisbane ramps up recruitment with a culinary perk


The Star Brisbane has launched a massive recruitment blitz with a restaurant catering for up to 600 people at one sitting with all items on the menu free of charge one of the perks of employment.

With over 1,000 jobs up for grabs across a range of departments including food and beverage, hotel, security, property operations, gaming and corporate, the buffet-style employee-only restaurant will cater for The Star’s growing workforce, providing a free meal and a menu that changes daily.

Around 1400 current team members will also transition from Treasury Brisbane.

The Star Brisbane director of culinary Uday Huja said the menu will offer a great variety of food items to suit everyone’s tastes and health considerations.

“The menu will include a range of items from pasta, curries or fish and chips to Asian noodles, baked ham and burgers as well as surprise themed menus, for example Taco Tuesdays,” he said.

The staff restaurant will cater up to 600 in one sitting.

“But there will always be fresh salads and fruit and an ice cream sundae station available all day, every day.

“It’s been configured as a restaurant, so it invites our team members to enjoy their break and some social time over a meal.”

The Star Brisbane CEO Daniel Finch said he is thrilled to be joining the team ahead of a staged opening later this year.

“Like most Queenslanders I have been watching the progress of this game-changing tourism development over the past few years,” he said.

“Today is the first time I too have seen the employee dining room and it is incredibly special. I will most definitely be enjoying many a meal here.

“Together with the hard-working team already here and those who will participate in our recruitment process I am eager to roll my sleeves up and get on with ensuring we deliver world-class tourism and hospitality experiences for the many millions who will soon begin visiting, especially Brisbane locals.”

The Star Brisbane precint is due to open in August.
