Hong Kong - The Murray, Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel, held a one-day grand recruitment drive recently. The event attracted more than 400 candidates looking to secure a position in the most anticipated hotel opening in Hong Kong.
An ongoing campaign, The Murray, Hong Kong offers over 300 job openings for both frontline and management levels across various departments, including Engineering, Restaurants, Bars and Events, Finance, Front Office, Security, Wellness, and Housekeeping. In particular, the hotel's Restaurants, Bars and Events division provided over 140 roles, recruiting talent from servers to sommeliers. Through today's event, the hotel aims to welcome more than 150 successful applicants to join the Murray team.
Unlike standard job fairs, candidates were greeted with a warm Murray welcome in the stylish setting of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) Business School - Central at the Hong Kong Club Building. Candidates were welcomed into different areas, where they received an introduction on the vision of the hotel and its unique design. Showcasing The Murray Signature Experiences, the set-up also included a series of interactive displays such videos, photography, uniforms and backdrops which collectively evoke the spirit of the hotel.
At Niccolo's 'Art of Dining' corner, applicants were served refreshments while they familiarised themselves with the hotel's Restaurant and Bar concepts. Interviewing potential candidates, select members of The Murray's management team lent their experience in matching candidates with the right positions.
"We are delighted to have met with the aspiring applicants today. The scale of the campaign is a testament to our belief that people are crucial in the luxury hospitality sector despite the rising prevalence of digital automation," says Duncan Palmer, managing director of The Murray, Hong Kong. "Hong Kong is the ideal location with a wealth of knowledge and a diverse talent pool. We look forward to welcoming the successful candidates to become part of The Murray family and provide them with an opportunity to be part of history, opening a new icon for Hong Kong."
