This is not a career opportunity that comes by often.
The newly-opened Westin Singapore is searching for its first runWESTIN Concierge. As part of the job, this person will be taking hotel guests out for a run, creating scenic running routes around the hotel, training runners for marathons, planning wellness activities for associates, as well as sharing tips with guests.
Offered at over 20 Westin properties in Asia Pacific, runWESTIN encourages guests to go running during their stay with recommended running routes or having the Concierge to run with them. Sweetening the deal is Westin’s New Balance gear lending programme where guests can borrow New Balance running shoes with disposable insoles, as well as a variety of New Balance apparel, for just US$5. This helps to save luggage space as guests need not worry about bringing workout gear and also, it adds convenience as guests need not worry about laundry or keeping their sweaty clothes in their luggage for too long.
So if you love running, maybe this is a perfect opportunity for a career change!
Westin Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific also launched its ‘runWESTIN. Work Out. Do Good’ charity drive.
From 21 February to 30 April 2014, Westin Hotels & Resorts will donate a new pair of New Balance shoes to Soles4Souls, a charity that provides footwear to those in need. For Westin hotels in Greater China, New Balance shoes will be donated to Zhejiang Xinhua Compassion Education Foundation. A pair of New Balance shoes will be donated for every 20 guests who reserve or lend the Westin New Balance gear or use the runWESTIN running route map during their stay at participating properties.
Additionally, guests who take part in the charity campaign will also be invited to write a personalised message to the donation beneficiaries. The best messages will be eligible to win New Balance running shoes.
