Tourism and Hospitality (Drysdale)

Love being creative? Are you a people person? Enjoy a busy work environment?

If meeting lots of new people, working flexible hours, and gaining skills and knowledge to take you anywhere in the world is appealing, give some serious thought to the tourism, cookery and hospitality industries.

These sectors offer a diverse range of career paths and job roles for casual, part-time and full-time work. Options for your ‘office’ are almost endless – from restaurants, cafes, hotels and resorts, to cruise ships, tourist ventures and major events.

Tasmania is well and truly on the map in terms of natural beauty, unique wildlife and gourmet food and wine. Interest in our special events and festivals is also rapidly expanding. It’s no secret that we’re seeing steady growth in employment opportunities right across hospitality and tourism with enthusiastic and skilled workers being in high demand.

If you love meeting interesting people, learning new skills and being ‘hands on’, chances are you’ll love what we offer. The training you undertake here in Tasmania will not only place you in a great position to find work locally, but also provide a springboard to land a job anywhere in the world.
