About us

At Qbic we welcome character, so to be a true Qbic Ambassador and part of our senior management team we’re looking for someone who is:

 

  • Free-spirited - Following a natural sense of wonder and adventure
  • Independent - Exploring and expressing what’s true to you

  • Neighbourly - Welcoming all to come as you are
  • Green - 67% less carbon emissions than other hotels our size, and thats not hot air 

We’re “people” people and we’re known for doing things differently, but most importantly we put people at the heart of everything we do.

 

So what does that really mean?

A close-knit group of special people, with the freedom to be themselves and offer guests the warmth and generosity you’d expect from someone welcoming you into their home.   We think that this is important as it elevates the Qbic experience and creates a more personal feel for guests. It also gives guests the feeling they are interacting with real people, who care, rather than corporate clones reading from a script.

 

About you

We are looking for bags of personality and positive attitude.  A can-do attitude approach, enthusiasm, and energy, paired with a desire to do things well, creating a great guest experience will get you a long way.  Your ability to create meaningful relationships and thinking out side of the box will also be key.  We’re an inclusive employer so want you to also feel welcome like our guests and free to be yourself.
