The search is on to find Australia’s first W Insider

Do you think outside the box, have a finger on the pulse and know your way around Brissy? Well, W Hotels wants you!

The luxury hotel brand are on the hunt to find Australia’s first ever W Insider ahead of the opening of their brand new hotel in Brisbane next year.

The W Insider will get to work closely with W Hotels to create content about what’s new in Brisbane to ensure W guests have access to the freshest design, fashion and music experiences in the city.


To be in the running, interested candidates need to create a unique application in a form that best captures their personality, style and presence – think video, prose, art or social media.

Shortlisted candidates will then be paired up with a professional camera crew for a day to film an Insider Guide to Brisbane video where they can show their take on what’s new and next in Brisbane through the lens of W Hotels’ key passion points of design, fashion, music and fuel (the brand’s take on wellness).

The W Insider will be announced at W Brisbane’s Talent Casting Day – the hotel’s unconventional take on a traditional recruitment day – on Monday, 11 December 2017, where their Insider Guide to Brisbane will be premiered in front of guests.

“W Brisbane is going to be a game-changer for the Australian hotel scene when it opens, and the W Insider will play an integral role to the success of the hotel,” said W Brisbane’s General Manager Haldon Philp.

“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.”

Applications for the W Insider role are now open, but get in quick because they close on November 7.  For more information, or to apply, click here.
