Brisbane is on the hunt for Australia’s first ever W Insider. What's that you ask?

Well, to answer your question, let us first introduce you to where you could be working.

W Hotels is a luxurious, yet unconventional, hotel chain located all around the world and are about to open it's first Australian hotel in Brisbane early 2018. 


The W Insider will be the go-to person on what's hot and trending in the city and inform guests how they can access the coolest experiences.

They will provide backstage access to the city’s emerging talent and pave the way to ensure guests have the most incredible stay (not to mention the giveaways!). 


To help uncover Australia’s top talent, W Brisbane is launching the city’s first-of-a-kind casting call.

To be in the running, interested candidates need to prove they’ve got their finger on the pulse and know Brissy better than anyone else. 

“We need someone who embodies the passions, style and essence of the W brand and vibrancy of this city, and can channel their energy into creating extraordinary experiences our guests will never forget.”

- Haldon Philp, W Brisbane’s General Manager

Candidates are encouraged to think outside of the box and create their application in a form that best captures their personality, style and presence – think video, prose, art or social media.

The submissions will be judged by Hit 105's breakfast show host Abby Coleman and the hotel team who will select the most witty and bold applications.

“A secret life bubbles away just below the surface in Brisbane and we’re on the lookout for someone who knows what’s going on behind the scenes – the unexpected finds and quirky spots that global jetsetters and local tastemakers can only dream of.”

- Abbey Coleman, Hit 105 Breakfast Show Host


From here the shortlisted candidates will be paired up with a professional camera crew for a day and sent out into the city and surrounds to film their Insider Guide to Brisbane.


The newly appointed W Insider will be announced at W Brisbane’s Talent Casting Day on Monday, 11 December 2017, where their Insider Guide to Brisbane will be premiered in front of guests.   

So, the million dollar question: How do you apply?

Right here.
