Tourism, Hospitality & Food

It’s no secret that we’re seeing steady growth in employment opportunities right across the hospitality and tourism sector, with enthusiastic and skilled workers being in high demand, both here in Tasmania and on the mainland, and also internationally.

Working in tourism and hospitality is all about ‘service’ and the sector is looking for people who are friendly, efficient and passionate about the work they do. To be successful in this industry, you’ll need to be a people person and have an approachable and responsive manner, as well as great customer service and a good dollop of communication and organisational skills!
