The $3 billion development will have an 8000-strong workforce in five years. The integrated resort precinct will need staff for five international hotels, 50 restaurants, the casino-resort and more. Because of the Queen’s Wharf precinct, visitors are forecasted to increase to 1.4 million, and tourism spending is expected to increase by $1.7 billion a year. By 2031, the Brisbane City Council estimates an increase of 32,500 employees in the CBD.

“Certainly there is a challenge when you talk about that volume of jobs, but if you structure it and start training people early, you’ll be fine,” said Queensland managing director Geoff Hogg. The Queensland Hotel and Hospitality School has already been established to train employees to work in luxury five and six-star hotels and restaurants.
Naomi Hassett, is currently a culinary arts apprentice with similar program, Star Culinary Institute, on the Gold Coast. She said, “Thousands of jobs in hospitality will become available, especially when Queen’s Wharf Brisbane opens, and this job security makes the industry even more attractive to enter.”
