Emaar Hospitality Group has launched an innovative initiative to find the ‘World’s Greatest Hospitality Talent’, which is open to all young individuals spanning the globe who are below the age of 26.
The talent scouting competition will find and nurture the most talented individual for a senior level position in the hospitality industry through a three-year, all-expenses paid programme.
Highlighting the reasons for the competition was CEO, Emaar Hospitality Group, Olivier Harnisch: “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,” he added.
Those with a passion for hospitality can apply for the opportunity online, with a personal video. A total of eight candidates will be short-listed and invited to Dubai in July for a one-week casting, which will shed light on their personalities, creativity, innovative approaches and passion for the industry.
One candidate will be chosen as the winner and they will be stationed in Dubai at Emaar Hospitality Group’s headquarters. The winner will also receive remuneration as per industry standards including housing and transport allowance, plus more.
