The Address Hotels & Resorts, Emaar Hospitality Group LLC’s own premium five-star brand, has unveiled its recruitment strategy to drive its up-and-coming properties in the UAE and internationally. The hotel brand is targeting 1,800 professionals to be recruited in the next five months.

The Address Hotels & Resorts has an aggressive recruitment strategy for The Address, Downtown Burj Dubai; The Address, Dubai Mall; and The Address, Dubai Marina. The recruitment is done through local and international campaigns. All recruits will be trained extensively to align themselves with the operational ethos of The Address Hotels & Resorts.

Mr Marc Dardenne, Chief Executive Officer, Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “The Address Hotels & Resorts is setting new benchmarks in the hospitality sector with a focus on ‘one size fits one’ properties that offer more benefits for our guests. To achieve our goals, it is important to have a highly trained and motivated workforce, which we are currently recruiting from local and international markets.”

He added: “The multicultural team, to be drawn from around the world, will bring in rich diversity to our properties and help us to meet the needs of our international guests. By recruiting from diverse cultural backgrounds, we can leverage on different perspectives and add to the guest experience. True excellence can be achieved only through the involved participation of our associates. We are looking for charismatic individuals with big hearts and genuine smiles who are passionate about the industry regardless of their position in the organization. We are utilizing new ways to attract talent; especially the use of New Age media and the response so far has been incredible.”

The Address Hotels & Resorts is seeking to hire employees from all hospitality-related sectors. They will be drawn from markets including Europe, the Far East, South Asia, South East Asia,  and the Middle East, to name a few, to discover talents that fit the level of perfection that The Address properties aim to achieve.

Louise Forrester, Corporate Director Human Resources, for Emaar Hospitality Group said: “It is important to understand the essential role that each and every person in our organisation plays to ensure our guest experience is personal and memorable. We have focused our attention on hiring dynamic, positive and adaptable individuals with a keen desire to be part of a fresh and personalized approach towards Hospitality for a world-class hotel brand. Our commitment in return is to provide exceptional learning and growth opportunities that will ensure we attract and retain talented individuals in a highly competitive market.”

The Address Hotels & Resorts is initially focusing on hiring interns and hotel graduates to present them with an opportunity to experience a pre-opening implementation and provide opportunities for excellent career growth. Associates are needed to create a guest engagement experience based on their inbuilt qualities and flair for interaction. Candidates are expected to acquire multi-tasking skills and have the ability to adapt to new roles or be flexible in current ones. Most of all they need to be passionate about what they are doing as this will make the difference.

The addition of The Address completes Emaar Hospitality Group’s portfolio as a full-service hospitality company. With total assets of development value US$1 billion (AED 3.67 billion), Emaar Hospitality Group owns and manages a diversified portfolio of hospitality assets such as hotels, serviced residences, golf resorts, polo and equestrian club, recreation clubs, and the Dubai Marina Yacht Club and Marinas.
