Want to get paid to party? QT Newcastle has the gig for you!

To celebrate the opening of QT Newcastle on 9 June, QT is searching for a connoisseur for the finer things in life to be a taste tester and tastemaker for what the hotel has to offer.

Part reviewer, part party maven, the QT’s first QT Connoisseur will be “Chief Tasting Officer” for the newly opened Jana Restaurant and Bar, spearheaded by executive chef Massimo Speroni.

The role involves reviewing every seasonal menu for one year [from June 2022 to June 2023], bringing Michelin star experience and Novocastrian flavour to the community of Newcastle.

Speroni’s take on modern Australian cuisine is mixed with Italian influence to create an approachable produce-led menu featuring unexpected twists on simple dishes for elevated, yet comfortably casual dining.

Flexing their taste buds to celestial heights, the QT Connoisseur will kick-off their QT career nine levels up at Rooftop by QT, with QT Newcastle throwing a raucous welcome party for the new recruit and 40 friends.

In the role, they’ll enjoy insider access to the Japanese-inspired menu and their pick of theatrically flared cocktails created with QT’s Ordered Chaos Gin created in partnership with Four Pillars.

Boasting the largest whisky collection in Newcastle, the QT Connoisseur will have the opportunity to taste test the rarest whisky in the city flown directly from Japan, in an exclusive whisky experience with bar manager, Natalie McAlary.

The most important part of the role is to sleep on the job. Swapping their party pants for pyjamas to sink into a QT Dream Bed and road-testing the bubble-to-water ratio of QT’s lavishly oversized bathtubs.

The QT Connoisseur will need to conduct a “vibe check” on the various room types scoring the ultimate work perk to takeover an entire floor of the hotel for themselves for a night of revelry and luxury across 10 rooms.

Within their tenure as QT Connoisseur they will also have the opportunity to stay overnight in QT Newcastle’ debonair Clock Suite; a natural light filled sanctuary fixed in time within the building’s iconic dome and clock face.
