Before the St. Regis Longboat Key resort opens this summer, it needs to fill 400 jobs. To help find candidates, the hotel is hosting a job fair at the Van Wezel in Sarasota on June 12.

Upon opening, the St. Regis Longboat Key, which is still under construction, will include 168 guest rooms; six restaurants and a bar; a spa with infinity-edge pool overlooking the Gulf of Mexico; and a 350,000-gallon wildlife lagoon packed with stingrays, reef fish and tortoises.

Available positions at the St. Regis range from administrative to operational, with jobs in food service at the resort’s restaurants, handling activities at the children’s club, providing services at the St. Regis Spa and engaging with lagoon wildlife encounters, according to a statement from the resort.

Some specific positions the St. Regis Longboat Key is looking to fill include administrative assistant, bartender, child activity attendant, concierge, housekeeping, maintenance, massage therapist, pastry cook, pool attendant, software engineer and sommelier.

“With positions tailored to different passions and skill sets, there's a role suited for every candidate,” according to a statement from St. Regis Longboat Key.

The job fair will be from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 12, at Van Wezel, 777 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.

Applying online before the job fair will expedite the interview process, officials say. Those with questions can contact Director of Human Resources Clariseli Acosta at 941-894-7264.
