Emaar Hospitality Group has announced the launch of a global initiative to find the ‘World’s Greatest Hospitality Talent’.
Open to all young talents below the age of 26 years from anywhere in the world, Emaar Hospitality Group’s international talent scouting competition aims to identify and nurture the most talented individual for a senior level position in the hotel industry through a comprehensive three-year all-expenses paid nurturing programme.
Olivier Harnisch, chief executive officer of Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “Our youth defines the future of the hospitality industry. With the guest profile changing and a new generation of travellers and entrepreneurs demanding new hospitality experiences, it is important to have youthful thinking and young leaders, who can lead the industry to the next era.
“We have always focused on nurturing new talents, and this unique initiative aims to open doors for young people to learn about the industry from the experts and build for themselves a rewarding career in a managerial role. At Emaar Hospitality Group, we embrace diversity and encourage talents from any background to apply.”
Eight candidates will be shortlisted and invited to Dubai in July for a one-week casting that will combine traditional and innovative selection techniques, such as a performance at Dubai Opera and team-based business simulations.
A spokesperson said the winning candidate must be below 26-years-old and hold a bachelor’s degree or equivalent from any discipline, when the training commences in September 2018.
They will be stationed in Dubai at Emaar Hospitality Group’s headquarters, and will take part in a comprehensive development programme. The winner will also receive remuneration as per industry standards including housing and transport allowance, and other perks.
