Marriott International’s Civic Hotel to host event Sept. 19 at nearby Surrey city hall

SURREY — Operators of the city’s newest – and tallest – hotel are looking to hire 165 employees ahead of its opening in November.

Marriott International’s 144-room Civic Hotel, located in the 55-storey tower next to Surrey City Hall, will host a hiring fair on Tuesday, Sept. 19, from 4 to 7 p.m. at city hall’s atrium, 13450 104th St., Surrey.

Employees needed for the hotel and adjacent Dominion Bar + Kitchen restaurant include servers, hosts, cooks, housekeeping personnel, front-desk agents, bell staff, security and more.

“The growing Civic team is looking to add professional and motivated team members of all levels of experience to provide standout, personalized experiences for guests and the local community,” planners of the hiring fair say in an event listing sent to the Now-Leader.

Those looking for jobs at the hotel and restaurant are asked to bring a resume, cover letter, references “and a smile” to the hiring fair. Job postings can be found at civichotel.ca/careers.
