What kind of people are you looking for?
At IHG, we value the individual passions and talents of our people. We create an environment where you can grow and develop and make a difference. We call this Room to be Yourself. Whether your passion is scuba diving or flower arranging, if you can bring the same level of passion, energy and excitement to work, then we’re interested in you.
Will I have the opportunity to work in a different country?
With hotels and offices in nearly 100 countries around the world, we have a lot of people who have happily moved to live, work and experience different cultures around the world with us. However, we do not automatically sponsor candidates for work permits and visas to work in a new country.
What age do I need to be to work with IHG?
In most of the countries in which IHG operates, you need to be at least 18 to work with us. However, it is best to check directly with the specific hotel to find out the current local employment laws for that region. Find your local IHG property by going to www.ihg.com.

I recently submitted my information for a position. What is the next step?
When you apply for a position on this site you will receive an e-mail confirmation acknowledging our receipt of your application. Recruiters review candidate pools to identify those candidates whose experiences and qualifications most closely match the position specifications. Due to overwhelming response to many of our positions, it might take a litte while before we can contact you to apprise you of the status of your candidacy. We appreciate your patience as we carefully review each candidate’s background and credentials – including yours – against the experience and qualifications sought for the opportunity. If you are identified to move forward in the process, you will be contacted by a Recruiter, who will outline the next steps of the process. If you are not identified to move forward, you still may be contacted about other opportunities that align with your profile and/or interests. Your profile will remain on record for up to three years after you create or edit it. You can update your profile at any time. Should your profile match any new job openings, we may contact you via email to see if you have interest in those openings.
I completed my Career Profile and subscribed to automatic notifications. When will I be notified about opportunities?
You will be notified about new opportunities as soon as they are posted on our site, as long as they reflect the interests and preferences you indicated in your Career Profile.
If you did not subscribe to automatic notifications and you wish to activate this feature, check the box on page 1 of My Employment Preferences on your Career Profile next to "Send an email notification whenever a new position matching this profile I posted”. If you elect not to receive notifications, you will then need to manually visit our Careers Web site to view new opportunities.
I received a notification that there may be a specific job that matches with my interests and preferences. How do I apply for this job?
Follow the instructions on the e-mail notification you received and click the appropriate link to view the job description. The link will take you directly to the specific position on this site.

If the specific job does not appear when you click the link in the e-mail, the position has been filled or is no longer available.
If I receive an e-mail indicating that multiple positions may match my interests and preferences, do I need to apply for each position separately?
Yes, you must apply for each position. Information contained in your Career Profile will be pre-populated in your application (and available to edit) but you will also be asked to provide additional information specifically related to the position you are applying for.
Why am I asked to provide additional information after applying for specific positions after I already established a Career Profile?
In addition to your resume/CV, your Career Profile contains general information about your career preferences and interests.

Because of the high volume of candidates who typically apply for posted positions, we recommend you respond quickly if you have an interest in a position.

When you click on a job opening to view the details, you will see the requisition number to the right of the job title.
