Welcome to Perth! As one of the most isolated capital cities in the world (more than 2,000 km from our next closest capital city in Adelaide!), Perth is often forgotten about (entertainers regularly do ‘Australian Tours’ but forget about the biggest state!) However, with seemingly endless desert to the east, and the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean to the west, Perth is an underestimated gem of a city with a laid-back Australian lifestyle. In the heart of this amazing city, you’ll find the ahs hospitality Perth team, led by General Manager Western Australia, Brad Coehlo.
The ahs hospitality Perth support office is made up of a team of five people; Brad leads and supports the operations and housekeeping managers, while ensuring compliance is met across the hotels ahs hospitality services in the western state, as well as building and fostering positive relationships with key stakeholders; Sara Hocking and Tony Slattery, Operations Managers for Western Australia who regularly visit the hotel sites to maintain face-to-face relationships with the hotel teams; Zoe Hannan, our People and Culture Coordinator for Western Australia who provides support for the full team of employees in Western Australia, recruits new employees across all sites in WA, and represents the team at recruitment events; and last but not at all least, Dhanya Abraham, our National Recruitment Consultant who is responsible for advertising vacant positions, attending information sessions for hotel providers, and keeping the team up to date on recruitment events that are coming up.
The Perth team recently moved into new offices located on St Georges Terrace in Perth CBD, and while they may be a small team in themselves, they share the space with other teams from our parent group, RGF Staffing APEJ. This move was in-line with creating a more dynamic and collaborative environment for the individual team, and RGF Staffing APEJ as a business, and is supportive of our hybrid working model with the inclusion of state-of-the-art videoconferencing equipment in many of the workspaces. The office also includes access to a fully equipped gym and swimming pool, as well as beautiful views of the Brisbane River and Kings Park.
One of the most incredible features of the Perth office, however, isn’t something that is necessarily noticeable at first glance. The furniture in the office includes award-winning designs by Habitat, as part of our commitment to sustainable business practices. This incredible furniture is constructed from 100% sustainable materials, with each panel being made of a minimum of 53 recycled 600 ml plastic bottles. Combined with other sustainable initiatives, this is a fantastic way for ahs hospitality, and RGF Staffing APEJ to play their part in reducing their carbon footprint and committing to more eco-friendly practices within the business operations.
The team members in Perth love that their office is incredibly welcoming and supportive, and they enjoy the collaborative nature of sharing the space with such a diverse range of people and brands within the business. The office is always vibrant and alive with the hubbub of activity, and they often come together for morning teas, birthday celebrations, holidays and fundraising events. Everyone agrees that the flexible nature of the working arrangements, plus the perks of a pool and gym on site, and easy access to amazing coffee shops and restaurants, makes the Perth office the best place to be.
Thanks Perth team, we aren’t at all jealous of your amazing views and swimming pool! Located in the Perth CBD, our beautiful new office is perfectly located for clients and hotel operators across Western Australia wishing to take their meetings offline, and for candidates interviewing for our available roles.
