Radisson Red Glasgow has received a number of applications to attend its casting day earlier this week, with 1,600 showing interest in the positions available.
Scheduled to open in spring 2018, the Radisson Red marks the first Red hotel to open in the UK and is looking to employ around 80 people in total.
The call went out in December last year, inviting anyone looking for a new challenge in 2018 to apply for a place on the casting day held at The Lighthouse on January 22. Alongside their CV, applicants were asked for a video clip, selfie or Instagram link.
Encouraged to be conscious, courageous, captivating and versatile, successful candidates will be able to take the lead, be part of a team and create a spark with everything they do.
“We were blown away with the response to our Casting Day. 1,600 applications is an amazing number. It really reinforced in our minds that Glasgow was the right location for the first Radisson RED hotel in the UK. This city is brimming with creativity, style and ambition, and we can’t wait to be a part of it,” said Michael Weston, curator of the hotel.
“The candidates who attended had a great connection with the brand, and really embraced the spirit of the day and it was great to get to know so many of them.
“We want Red brand ambassadors who connect with the world around them. We want our team of creatives to be socially aware and able to make genuine friendships with our guests. We encourage laughter, playfulness and even a little mischief with guests that will drive them to come back again and again. At Red personality is the most important part – we can show you the rest.”
