SAY WHAT? QT Gold Coast posts job ad for a ‘director of sunshine’

QT Hotels & Resorts is recruiting for the quirkiest role yet: a director of sunshine.

Don’t believe us? Well, the job has been advertised on Seek since 17 November.

With summer having just arrived and a bumper tourism season expected on the Gold Coast, QT has begun recruiting for experts in “summer theatrics” to offer guests “a ray of sunshine after a gloomy year”.

The recruitment push also coincides with the reopening of QT Gold Coast’s hotel and newly renovated pool and outdoor bar, The Spring.

“If you can outshine anyone in the room, come armed with a sunny disposition and a flair for poolside showmanship, then QT Gold Coast wants you,” the job ad states.

“Part concierge, part food and beverage expert, the director of sunshine brings a little magic to each stay, tackling guest’s poolside requests to deliver a ray of sunshine to their summer holiday at QT Gold Coast’s newly refurbished luxury pool precinct, The Spring.

“Towel animals, colour-sorted M&Ms and dramatic cocktails in a pineapple, bring it on.”

The job ad says the successful candidate will deliver “unforgettable welcomes”, tips to The Spring’s best cocktails and lead summer activities at the QT’s new outdoor bar, The Green, all with “theatrical flair”.

“Fearless and fashionable in a bespoke costume, you’ll spark joy for authentic enjoyment – not for the sound of applause.”

So, if you’re on the hunt for a new job and consider yourself a bit of a poolside party starter, this role is definitely made for you.
