Wyndham Destinations team member Mark Hotchin has climbed the ranks at Wyndham to a managerial role.

A suite of employee benefits, both immediate and longer-term, have been rolled out by Wyndham Destinations Asia-Pacific as part of a major new nationwide recruitment push to ensure it has enough staff on hand for the peak holiday season.

Perks on offer include a starting bonus for eligible positions, a free two-night stay and ongoing staff discounts, a recruitment gift up to $100, professional development and for full-time workers, paid parental leave and subsidised private health insurance.

The company is aiming to fill more than 150 positions at hotels and resorts in Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast and many regional centres in five Australian states. Positions available include bartenders, chefs, resort staff, customer service staff, maintenance crew, room attendants and roles in sales and marketing.

To assist in the push, Wyndham Destinations Asia-Pacific will host a nationwide ‘Rapid Recruitment Day’ on November 17 from 11am to 2pm at all of its Wyndham, Club Wyndham and Ramada branded resorts in Shoal Bay, Phillip Island, Port Douglas and the Sunshine Coast. Candidates attending will receive a 20% discount voucher simply for attending on the day.

Wyndham Destinations Asia-Pacific Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Customer Experience, PR and Communications, Bruce Harkness, said the company was looking for customer focused candidates to help put the world back on vacation.

“Restrictions are lifting, and travel is making a comeback,” Harkness said.

“We encourage job seekers to come along to our rapid recruitment day or apply with us direct for the chance to embark on a rewarding career with Wyndham Destinations. Hospitality is a wonderful career offering exciting progression opportunities.

“We have seen so many people grow in our organisation from entry-level roles to senior leadership careers, which have in many cases, taken them all over the world.”
