To create or modify your candidate profile, please click ‘APPLY’ at the top of the page and click on ‘My Profile Page’.

IHG does not accept speculative applications, paper resumes nor those submitted via email. All applications to IHG must be received via our careers site.

The perpetrators often ask recipients to complete bogus recruitment documentation, such as application forms, terms and conditions of employment or visa forms. The InterContinental Hotels Group name, the IHG name, logo, hotel brand logos or photographs of hotels are often featured on the documentation without IHG’s permission.

Here are some helpful resources to assist you in spotting Recruitment Scams:

IHG has been made aware of communications (principally email-based) from bogus employment agencies falsely claiming to recruit on behalf of InterContinental Hotels Group and IHG-branded hotels to attract job applicants from overseas.  To apply for legitimate IHG jobs, click the ‘Find A Job’ button at the top of the page.  IHG discourages anyone from making unsolicited offers of employment claiming to be on behalf of IHG hotels or any other part of the InterContinental Hotels Group.  If you have a question about the accuracy or legitimacy of any job offer or if you receive a fraudulent job offer or posting, please contact IHG’s Global Legal Intellectual Property Team at Trademarks@ihg.com.
