Fifty positions to be filled at Goondoon St hospitality hub

THE premier hospitality precinct in Gladstone is about to arrive.

Ribs and Rumps and The Coffee Club will open their doors to the public on December 19, but before they can, Gladstone's finest front and back-of-house staff are being called upon to join the hospitality team.

"The Grand Hotel is a historic pub and we're very proud of our venue," venue manager Ben Casey said.

"Finally we can give it what it deserves in an establishment that has something for everyone."

The opening of the two restaurants will provide Goondoon St with a much-needed facelift, increasing options for locals and offering vibrant, alfresco dining.

"We have up to 50 positions up for grabs, both front and back of house, from waiters to bartenders, baristas, chef and supervisory positions," Mr Casey said.

"We encourage all who are interested in working within this dynamic and highly motivated team to come down to discuss potential career positions."

Recruitment days will be held on Sunday, November 24 and Monday, November 25 at the Grand Hotel on 79 Goondoon St.

This exciting chapter in Gladstone's development will bring beautifully brewed coffee to the town every day of the week, and a high-end steakhouse.

"Both Ribs and Rumps and The Coffee Club are vibrant, energetic brands," Mr Casey said.

"Which will correspond with the young demographic of Gladstone."

Construction has been under way at the Grand Hotel for the past four months, with newly opened function rooms, sports bar, gaming areas and the two highly anticipated restaurants.

The Grand Hotel will be linked via skywalk to the 144-room Oaks Grand hotel, on track for completion in early 2014.

Hospitality workers who have a strong work ethic, deliver high levels of customer service and are outgoing and positive individuals are encouraged to attend the open days, where 50 positions will be filled.

"It is a very exciting time for the Grand Hotel," Mr Casey said.

"And also a very exciting time for Gladstone."
